'Breaking Bad' won't be back until July 2011
As has been widely expected, Deadline.com confirms that "Breaking Bad" won't be back for its fourth season until July 2011.
"Breaking Bad" has premiered in March the past two years, but the website suggests that the summer launch will help the meth-cooking dramedy dodge end-of-season network programming.
For viewers, this means that over a year will pass between original "Breaking Bad" episodes. For the show, on a practical level, it means that "Breaking Bad" won't be eligible for Emmy consideration next year.
"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston has won consecutive Emmys and is up for a third this month, while the series is nominated for Outstanding Drama Series for a second consecutive year.
