Breaking Bad is a complex drama on AMC which follows the dark path an initially mild-mannered chemistry teacher takes when diagnosed with terminal cancer. Knowing he will leave behind a wife and two children, Walter White devises a plan to make a lot of money quickly by producing and selling crystal meth. He employs the aid of a former student, Jesse Pinkman, while doing his best to keep his family -- including his DEA agent brother-in-law -- in the dark.
Bryan Cranston portrays White and the role earned him three consecutive Emmy awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, a feat accomplished by only one other actor and no other from a cable series. Aaron Paul is a two-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Pinkman in Breaking Bad. Other regulars in the cast include Anna Gunn, Dean Norris and R.J. Mitte. Bob Odenkirk and Giancarlo Esposito have been cast regulars in some of the seasons.
The final eight episodes of season five -- the series' last -- are scheduled to begin in July of 2013, airing Mondays at 10 p.m.
