New York – May 31, 2011 – AMC will premiere the highly anticipated fourth season of its Emmy® Award-winning series “Breaking Bad” on Sunday, July 17 at 10pm ET/PT. From acclaimed writer/producer/director Vince Gilligan and produced by Sony Pictures Television, the series follows the story of a desperate man who turns to a life of crime to secure his family’s financial security. Season four consists of 13, one-hour episodes.
Over three seasons, “Breaking Bad” has been heralded as one of the best TV dramas on television. The San Francisco Chronicle hailed “the writing is among the very elite in television,” with others calling the show “mesmerizing” (LA Times), “still TV’s best” (Newsday) and a drama that has the “jarring feel of a Tarantino film” (Variety).
Leading into season four’s highly anticipated premiere, fans will have a chance to catch up on “Breaking Bad,” as all episodes from season three will be available On Demand beginning Monday, June 20 through Sunday, July 17. In addition, AMC will air every episode from seasons one through three in late night, beginning Tuesday, July 5. Breaking Bad: The Complete Third Season will be released to Blu-ray™ and DVD on Tuesday, June 7 packed with special features, including deleted scenes, outtakes, cast and crew commentaries, plus five all-new behind-the-scenes featurettes, and much more.
“Breaking Bad” season four will also be complemented by a variety of exclusive material on AMCTV.COM. Among the special digital content is “Inside Breaking Bad” videos for each episode, behind-the-scenes clips throughout the season, and videos of the season’s most “Talked About Scenes.” The site will also feature a new iteration of its interactive graphic novel, starring Aaron Paul’s character Jesse Pinkman, and an interactive case file – with photos, text and video – that allows visitors to sift through the same crime scene evidence that DEA agent Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) sees and reviews.
