Breaking Bad, Season 5



An official start date has yet to be set, but Breaking Bad is slated to return this summer. Vince Gilligan and co. have been in the writing room fleshing out, what is said to be the final season of the series, for the past 3 months. The season shall consist of 16 episodes and it still unclear on whether or not they may be splitting the season in half a la season 6 of The Sopranos. Time will tell...

Also, here's a small casting rumor coming from reddit. Take with the usual grain of salt (Warning: Very minimal potential spoiler): http://www.reddit.com/r/breakingbad/..._been_cast_in/

All other news regarding season 5 will go here. However, any posts regarding previous season, please include spoilers as we'd hate to deter potential new viewers. Thanks again and can't wait to enjoy the ride with you all again this year...

For those who have yet to start watching this amazing series, first of all, what the fuck is the matter with you? And second of all you, you can currently watch the first three seasons on Netflix Watch Instantly.

Also, as usual, here's the link to my wikia, which has so many contributors these days, I can barely manage it. If anyone would like to made an admin thee, send me a message here or there: www.breakingbad.wikia.com

P.S. I still might make a soundtrack for season 4, I've just been super lazy.

I hope there's no split. Eight episodes is too short

My stepdaughter watches a lot of Malcolm in the Middle and it cracks me up seeing Bryan Cranston in that role. Can't believe it's the same actor. I would never have thought Cranston had something as outright brilliant as his performances in Breaking Bad within him. Which isn't to say anything bad about his performance in Malcolm in the Middle. He was great in that. It's just that he's operating on a level I would never have thought him capable of in Breaking Bad.

Spoiler:
Season five cannot come soon enough. The only thing I will say is that the death of Gus has left a huge void in the show that's going to be difficult to fill. But i'm confident they will pull it off and then some.

Yeah...i'm really not keen on the idea of a split. It's bad enough waiting between seasons. Fuck...the wait between episodes is unbearable. Sixteen consecutive episodes of Breaking Bad sounds like TV nirvana to me.

I'm not a fan of them splitting the seasons either. It's just gonna prolong the end that we all want to see, and it'll make it feel like two different seasons in a way. They may even release them in two different DVD/Bluray box sets (like they did with the Sopranos.)

However, the good part of it is that the show will come back on the air sooner if they split the season up since they only have eight episodes to write and film at a time. Otherwise, they wouldn't bring the show back until all sixteen were completed.

I can't wait for my favorite show to come back on either... In the mean time, here are some awesome paintings that a pair of artists have done in honor of the show:







You can find more by Cara and Louie here: http://paintingsontheside.tumblr.com/

They do excellent work! Check it out. Here's another that looks neat:

I just finished Season 4 and I am so excited for Season 5. I have a few unanswered questions about the last season though

Spoiler:
Mike isn't dead. He's recovering in Mexico. Will we see him again? What happens when he returns and finds out Gus is dead?


Spoiler:
Is Jessie going to find out about what Walter did? That should make for some serious drama.

Both of those things will come up in Season 5 for sure.

This at the time was a best snapshot of the relationship between Walt and Jesse, though their worlds have become chaotic they found something that neither one had before they met.

But after the 4th season I just don't know.
Spoiler:
Walt's downfall may occur on two levels, first off will be his immediate family but then with Jesse I don't know, he may or may not betray him. They've done so much harm yet so good for each other.

I was watching Beverly Hills Cop today and my mind was blown. The bodyguard of Victor (the villain) is played by the same actor that plays Mike in Breaking Bad.

All I know, if someone told me all other TV had to be taken away but I could have The Wire and BrBa forever...I'd say, sign me the fuck up

Can not WAIT for this show to come back.

I preferred his appearance in 48 Hrs. About five minutes tops of screentime and still makes a laconic impression.

"How's the wife?"
"Mean as a snake..."

You beat me to it. I was going to recommend 48 Hrs, too.

Has anybody seen the promo for Krysten Ritter's new ABC sitcom Don't Trust The Bitch In Apartment 23? They have a bunch of people appear individually, testifying about the bad things her character did to them when they were roommates. The last person before the fade is Cranston and he says "She made me want to kill her."

I've been laughing about that for days.

"Breaking Bad's" writers have only mapped out the first few stories of the show's last season, and production doesn't begin until late March. So there's very little to divulge at this point about where the show is headed -- not that creator Vince Gilligan would say even if there were.

One thing Gilligan and star Bryan Cranston are willing to discuss, though, is that knowing they'll be done after 16 more episodes is a good thing for the show's creative direction.

I was watching old episodes of The X-Files over the weekend and I had no idea that Vince Gilligan was a producer on that show as well. But there it was, while I was watching, his name popped up. It was cool to see. This guy really knows good television!

He was executive producer, as well as writer/director on several episodes including "Pusher" and "Soft Light" with Tony Schalub. A lot of the actors on BrBa previously worked on The X-Files including Cranston, Paul, Norris, Cruz (Tuco) and the guy who plays Hank's boss, ASAC Merkert, as well as others...

the same thing with this season of The Walking Dead. Sad that this will be the final season. I've first started watching the boxsets last year and continuing it with season 4. I hope Vince Gilligan is working on another new project.

I actually loved watching House's relationship with Cuddy and then his descent into darkness throughout the season culminating to that great final scene where House runs his car into Cuddy's house and runs off. Also got to love the stunned look on Wilson's face when he did that.

According to Cranston himself, shooting is to resume soon, and S5 will begin airing in July.

Quote:
Once more proving there is nothing that cannot be improved by a soupçon of Cranston, Bryan Cranston has relieved the otherwise-banal drudgery of Twitter today by letting everyone know that the fifth season of Breaking Bad begins shooting in “a few weeks,” with the episodes planned to air beginning in July. Much like Jon Hamm’s own revelations about the return date for Mad Men, it’s news that counts as unofficial until AMC confirms it. But much like Jon Hamm, Bryan Cranston’s word is bond, son, so probably count on it.

Also there's a funny and interesting TV tournament going on Vulture.com for what's considered the Best TV Drama in the Last 25 Years... They just did their first round, which included Breaking Bad vs.... Friday Night Lights? I was perplexed by that choice, but it's an entertaining read.

I feel it will all boil down to Breaking Bad vs. the Wire.

Never saw The Wire but Friday Night Lights deserves to be way up there.

My favorite dramas of the last 25 years are 24, Lost and The X-Files. I'd love for one of them to be the ultimate winner.

Besides The Wire, I'm sure Mad Men will be up there too. Everybody seems to love that show. Everybody here loves Breaking Bad, but I'm betting instead of Breaking Bad it'll be Mad Men. A final round of Mad Men vs The Wire seems likely to me.

EDIT: Looks like 24 isn't even a contender. Fortunately, Lost is. Unfortunately, they are going to have Lost go up against Mad Men in it's first round.

It also looks like you guys are going to be right about it ultimately going to be Breaking Bad VS The Wire since The Wire and Mad Men will be going up against each other before then. Unless Mad Men actually beats The Wire. Then it would be Mad Men vs Breaking Bad.

When I saw that they had The X-Files and The West Wing go up against each other, I was so afraid that The X-Files was gonna lose. So it was a real pleasant surprise to see that The X-Files had won. So glad. I'm sure The West Wing is a great show but The X-Files will forever be a favorite of mine!

Cranston and Paul have both confirmed a July air date for season 5!

Apparently Paul recently read the primiere script and said that fans should prepare for season five by stocking up on adult diapers...

Also, Rian Johnson announced at WonderCon that he will be returning to direct an episode. Fans of "Fly" rejoice!

LOVE Sopranos and Six Feet Under. I'd put BrBa over Sopranos because, I don't know, I guess the show feels "tighter" to me. But I love Tony Soprano and the supporting characters are heads and shoulders above those in BrBa. But The Sopranos never really had me feigning for the next episode. And Six Feet Under, unbelievable acting and characters but god damn did this show draiiinnnnn me.
