‘Breaking Bad’ Starts Shooting Season 2

Jul 8, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The AMC original series “Breaking Bad” will begin production on its second season July 15 in Albuquerque, N.M.
Series star Bryan Cranston will direct the second-season premiere, his first time directing for the series. Cranston directed several episodes of “Malcolm in the Middle.”
“Breaking Bad’s” 13-episode second season will premiere on AMC in early 2009.
“As we ramp up production for the next season of AMC’s original drama series ‘Breaking Bad,’ we look forward to returning to the endless visual settings of Albuquerque to not only work with the talented artists and crew base that the city offers, but also it serves as such a perfect backdrop for the evolution of Walt White’s character,” Vlad Wolynetz, VP of production, series and movies at AMC, said in a statement.
“Breaking Bad” comes from writer-producer-director Vince Gilligan (“The X-Files), fellow High Bridge Productions executive producer Mark Johnson, Gran Via Productions and Sony Pictures Television.

  1. Seriously 2009 I am going crazy waiting already and Now its not untill 2009. Well I can’t wait. But I love the show. Great work and would make a great reality checker for teens.

  2. I am literally addicted to this show. I can’t believe it’s taking so long to come out with a second season. They couldn’t have picked better actors for this show. This show is the best show I have ever seen on TV. It’s a good thing it’s on AMC otherwise I think it would be lame…lame…lame!!!!

  3. I have been waiting a long time to see more episodes. I didn’t even know that episode 7 was the end of season 1. They just started showing reruns. 2009 is a long time to wait. This is by far the best show on television and I’ll be buying season 1 as soon as it hits blue-ray. I am scared to hear that Cranston will direct the second-season premier, though. Everything about the show is so good. Why tinker with it? I hope he doesn’t ruin the movie-like cinemaphotography. That is one of the best things about the show.

  4. Wow 2009 that really sucks
    this show is one of the greatest shows
    and the actors are the best picks
    cant wait for season 2

  5. I’ve just been lucky enough to watch six (6) episodes in two days here at Showtime productions, but was crushed & burned to discover that we can only expect seven (7) in season 1!! It was set for nine (9) but the goddamn 2007/2008 writers strike messed it up. Couldn’t they have shot the remaining episodes this year? Now we are waiting six (6) months for season 2! Might this result in a loss of audience? Maybe, but I’ll be tuning in soon as.

  6. This is a bit ridiculous! I can’t believe they only gave us 7 episodes and then make us wait so long to start season 2. What happened to seasons beginning in the fall like they used to. And didn’t seasons used to have way more episodes than 13 (the scheduled amount for season 2)? We will have been waiting plenty longer than 6 months, more like 8+ months!!!

  7. BEST SHOW OF ALL TIME!!!!! ENOUGH SAID!!!!!!! YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT WAITING. YOU KNOW WHAT ANYTHING THAT GOOD IS WORTH THE WAIT.

  8. I’m just glad there is a season 2. 2009? Ack! I wish they’d make up for the short season of season 1 and make 27 episodes. At least give us some Making of… webshows of what their filming now.
    Rock On

  9. ugh I hate that we have to waite till ’09, that blows. This is the one show me and the hubby both enjoy. And with such a long waite it better be just as kick a** as season one. Oh well, I’m still a huge fan and will be egarly waiting in front of the TV the night it finally airs… just like all of you!!

  10. 2009 ? !
    COME ON….

  11. 2009?NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. quit your bitchin at least we get a second season

  13. WTF???Well early next year is still better than never at all!
    Great riveting series & good writing !
    Glad to see some real “Todays” type issues are being delt with!

  14. This show depicts the meth trade in a perfect light. The money to be made is alluring, yet it also show how devastating drug can be. This show is pretty REAL… AMC hit a home run here, can’t wait for season two!!

  15. 2009, seriously? Why not film one episode at a time and release them as you go along? Even a new episode every two weeks would be better than waiting until “early” 2009, whenever that will be…. This is going to be an excruciating wait; at least I have Mad Men to tide me over until then. WRITERS, PLEASE DON’T STRIKE AGAIN AND MESS THIS UP FOR YOURSELVES AND YOUR CUSTOMERS!! ONE MORE STRIKE, AND I’LL STOP BUYING YOUR PRODUCTS FROM ITUNES AND JUST MAKE A COPY OF THE DVDS MY FRIENDS BUY.

  16. 2009? Thats not so far away. quitcherbitchin’. why does jesse look so familiar? probably because he looks like all the rest of the grimey tweekers in town. he’s the best choice for his role. i think he even outshines malcolms dad. hope they keep it gangster next season with the mexicans and stuff. what was that dudes name? tuco? kinda reminds me of me. Breaking bad and Weeds go hand and hand but in the end, Weeds trumps bb anyday. Ill hump mary louise parker anyday. thats what bb needs. a hot tweeker girl.

  17. Thankyou for bringing Breaking Bad back to us.
    Everyone I know who’s seen this show loves it as I do and I’m thrilled to have it back even though the wait is killing me.

  18. We are just glad that they posted a release date for the new season.

  19. I LOVE…LOVE… LOVE… This series..
    Can’t they start replaying the 1st season soon so we can then jump into the second season when they are finally get that one ready to air?

  20. 2009 damn!!!i cant wait that long!ima go nuts.i love this show.it better never be canceled!

  21. Very good plot, Nice to see something different beside same on repeat shows like Friends and Doctor show etc…. really like the show wish it was playing this fall.

  22. hope itll be good! cant wait…about the first comment? reality check? for some reason that bothered me and you dont know ****! Read the book Tweak if u liked this show…you’ll love the biography that this guy wrote..
    “It was like being in a car with the gas pedal slammed down to the floor and nothing to do but hold on and pretend to have some semblance of control. But control was something i’d lost a long time ago.”

  23. I absolutely love this show. Good things come to those who wait! (-:

  24. I love this series. I even had a dream of an episode, like in the dream it was supposed to be a 2nd season episode. Pretty weird.

  25. Worth the wait for sure. I guess we can thank the writers strike for the delay.

  26. Keep up the great work. This is one of the most interesting shows I’ve seen in years. It’s almost addicting. I’m so excited to see what happens next.

  27. I can’t wait. I thought they were going to cancel the show. Come on 2009.

  28. It is truly a fantastic show. All the actors are the best but more importantly the writers have made it so so good. I am eagerly waiting for it to start so bad.

  29. So I just saw it anounced on the Web that Breaking Bad’s Season 2 premier will air on AMC @8:00PM (Central) on 11/26/08 for the first 6 episodes then a short 4-week break until the remaining 7 episodes finish.
    IT’S SIMPLY AWESOME THIS IS HAPPENING BEFORE THE 2009 DATE.

  30. I have been WAITING for season two. This is by far the smartest and best show on TV period. I would pay $10 to see this in a movie theater once a week. C’mon, start airing the 2nd season already and this time dont leave us hanging so long. If your TV show was too hard to follow or began to suck like LOST did, you would never be able to regain your audience. Good thing this show rocks so hard.

  31. I can’t wait for the premiere of season 2 either! This is the best show on TV right now. I read the message about the writers strike being to blame for 2 or 3 missing episodes from season 1 and it makes me mad. lol I am a union supporter though so I support the…..grudgingly.

  32. I know that 8 months is a long time to wait, but does NO ONE watch WEEDS? That show waits forever during seasons and still kicks ass and has a huge following. I think Breaking Bad is even better than WEEDS and will be fine with a long break … My husband and I are just as eager for season 2 as the rest of you … Patience is a virtue.

  33. im bummed it aint coming out sooner i love trhe story and writing an d all the wwhitty banter to boot
    to bad it aint till 09
    will it be on at its original slott?
    but im sure the new season will be great
    i love the old one
    wanna see more of that crazzy mother fuker tuco =]

  34. P.S
    i agree with james
    up there replay the 1st season in a crappy slot sometime
    i know ill watch although ive seen and loved them all
    hey wait othings on sundays at ten on amc how conviniant =]

  35. wait for it…wait for it…

  36. Just seen the last episode in season 1,,what can i say excellent show..Cant wait to see season 2..dont know when i will get to see it thow here in the UK…
    Superb show!!
    :-)

  37. Crap … first we have to wait until next summer for HP6 – HBP and now this. Oh well….good things are worth the wait.

  38. This is such a great show im missing it already and having to wait so long to watch season 2 is just guttering but im sur it will be worth the wait.

  39. This is such an unbelieviably addictive show I cant believe the first season is over already but im sure the next season will be worth the wait

  40. My mom talked me into watching Breaking Bad. She was so totally hooked on the show. Now because it took so long she won’t beable to see season 2 for she has died of lung cancer on Oct 6th. 2008. I’m sure she will be watching from above. I hope walter don’t go as fast as my mom did!!!!
    I can wait but hurry up

  41. Ok so I haven’t seen the show yet, but I anticipate watching it now due to the fact that they just completed filming right next door to my moms house! My fiance says this show is great so I gotta see for myself! Oh and its so funny, my moms lab jumped the fence to be in the movie! yup,…they put her in the movie too. :0)

  42. Love this show, it rox!

  43. Watched a few episodes and completely fell in love with this show. Have patiently been waiting for season 2. I only hope they don’t blow it as this show has started out with a fantastic season 1 with and addicting and captivating story line.

  44. I LOVE BREAKING bad!!~! its the best show i CANT Wait to see season 2! peace bitches!!!

  45. This show is one of the best I’ve ever seen. Definately better then the sopranos or Mad Men.

  46. I have NEVER been so into a show before. Cranston is a genius in his role. I am dying for the next season. PLEASE hurry!

  47. hi,I’m in england,and I read with amusement someone’s suggestion to film one episode at a time then air each one (so we don’t have to wait til 09 to see the 2nd series)
    It doesn’t work like that. Scenes from several episodes may be shot in the same location, so they might film all those scenes, then move onto another location and film scenes there etc. Also, stuff like weather, lighting etc is important…so basically, the whole series has to be shot,then edited, continuity checked, bla bla…..and THEN they want everyone to be gaggin for the start of the series to make sure we watch…
    Having said that I think they should make more episodes for the next series then not give the actors a break at all, like make the 3rd series whilst airing the 2nd, so the 3rd one is almost ready by the time the 2nd series ends, so we don’t have to wait!

  48. 2009? I’M LOSING MY MIND!
    Omg… I’ve been waiting every week just swearing they’re going to show the second season… omg 2009 though. When they say early they better mean like January. LOL

  49. This show rocks!! I can not wait till season 2 airs

  50. I am from Albuquerque and that is the only reason I started watching the show (for the cinematics what not) but I love this show and I am so excited we are getting a second season. I dont care when just as long as we get a second season and I am good.

  51. For those of you crying that Season 1 was only 7 episodes…it was because of the writer’s strike. The same reason that 24 didn’t even air last year. Patience, great shows coming back on air in January!!

  52. Have they set a date for this show yet?

  53. OK, So this is the deal. I am a lady who is 69 years old and I crave the second season of this show. Given that I only watch 3 shows on TV, that’s pretty much me “havin’ the jones.

  54. does anyone have an updated premiere date on season 2?

  55. Breaking Bad: Season 2 premieres March 8, 2009, at 10pm ET/PT on AMC.

  56. I wanna viddy season 2 really bad,’cause I lived part of the plot recently,except 4 cooking meth &
    dissolving bodies…a partner & I took a rogue narcoterrorist offa the streets legally,working with local law enforcemennt.We decided not to be terror victims.I lived the hospital part last June when I had a pancreatic attack & ended up having my gall bladder removed,out of nowhere,like Walt with his cancer diagnosis.When I was discharged from the hospital on June 10,I turned 49 & 1/2.I turned 50 on Jan 10,2009.Go figure…anyway,I know the chemistry & I wanna viddy that show!!!

  57. I like it its good….

  58. I have been waiting, waiting, waiting! Finally checked on the internet to see the status of the series. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is coming back soon!!!
    It surprised me that I never heard anything about the show when it finished last year. It is sooo good, I wish more young people were watching it to see the problems of drugs and what all they entail.
    Barbara, Greensburg, PA-STEELER COUNTRY!

  59. I can’t wait to see how the story is going to unfold in season 2. This is by far the best show, and most compelling story told in such a swift manner.

  60. I think Brian Cranston is an amazing actor (and everyone else on the show is to) and i am not worried at all about him directing, he has so much expierence in tv, and im sure he learned a lot along the way. I cant wait for season two. they better keep this show, i love it and already have season one on dvd. I used to do a quite a lot of christal,shards,puta,is all the same(so i just crack up when jesse freaks out about mormons turning into bikers,u cant help it, and they way everything else is so real, from jesse and badger “thanks for the toke”, to every single sceen. Its all totally how real life is, and i hope that that stays the same in season two. Somethings going down(it has to) and its going to be awesome

  61. Hey everyone Breaking Bad: Season 2 will premier on March 8th on AMC!!! Bryan Cranston is such an amazing actor and I actually met him because I was on the show a few times Im one of the students in his chemistry class. Well March is almost here so we just have to wait a little longer….Brandon

  62. This is by far the best idea for a tv program in years….the twists and turns they can go with are endless….i agree with everyone…it is my favorite show, by far……

  63. We’re under the one month mark until the start of the new season now!
    I can’t wait to see what happens.

  64. Hey! If you need a refresher, Fancast now has the first season finale. Check it out- Fancast

  65. Yes!Finally, enough people like a show I like that it didn’t get canceled. I really dont care for most of the crap shows that hold a primetime showing. PLEASE tell your friends to watch. This show deserves much respect. I would like to thank the creators for a great show with an original story line. Two weeks to go for season 2! Get your meth pipes ready! J.K. some pot will do me just fine.

  66. omg! Breaking bad is the shit! i cant wait to see the other episodes in season 2…

  67. i wacht breaking bad only 2 episodes on tv when doing the re run the last 2 and i will like to wach it again on dvd and tv thankiu
