AMC Delays Start of Emmy-Winning Drama’s Next Season Until 2011; Mini-Episodes to Run Online

AMC will delay the fourth season of an Emmy Award-winning drama series until July 2011, reports Deadline.com.

"What AMC is thinking here is there will be less competition for us–particularly from the broadcast networks–if we launch our season during the summer than if we come back again like we did this time in March,” actor Bryan Cranston told the publication, referring to his show “Breaking Bad.”

Aside from making fans of the show wait for more about Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, the move will mean that "Breaking Bad" will have to skip a year in Emmy consideration.

To make up the lack of "Breaking Bad" for fans, AMC will present mini-episodes online in early 2011 to keep viewers familiar with the characters and situations.


  1. I think this is a great idea. I was expecting them to do it this year. It is an outstanding show that is not getting its fair share of viewers in the Spring. Summer will hopefully help.

  2. AMC thinks there will be a bigger audience in the summer? For a cable series? What??? Are these people actually in the television industry? Do they see people frantically installing cable and dishes at the cottage just so they can huddle around the electronic fireplace on a hot July evening?
    Summer 2011 is an insane waiting period. And launching in the summer months for cable is even dumber.
