‘Breaking Bad’ Inks Syndication Deal With Sundance Channel
Breaking Bad will air on the Sundance Channel in syndication.
AMC’s hit series recently inked a syndication deal with the cable channel. Two episodes of the drama will air every Monday night beginning March 4 at 11 pm EST.
According to The Huffington Post, the Breaking Bad syndication deal the Sundance Channel made with AMC only includes episodes up through the season four finale.
The Sundance Channel’s Sarah Barnett said in a statement:
“‘Breaking Bad’ has become a benchmark for storytelling at its finest and we are proud to air this series as we embark on our own scripted programming with the upcoming debut of ‘Rectify,’ which is produced by the same incredible team behind ‘Breaking Bad.’ We are looking forward to giving viewers another opportunity to catch up with what has been called TV’s best drama.”
The Hollywood Reporter explains the cable channel will also debut a number of new programs around the same time that Breaking Bad makes its syndication debut.
Episodes of The Staircase: Last Chance will air on March 4 and 11, while Top of the Lake will run from March 18 to April 15. Breaking Bad producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein’s new series Rectify will air April 22 to May 27.
New episodes of AMC’s hit show will begin airing this summer. Unfortunately for fans of the series, they are quickly approaching the home stretch. Breaking Bad will end its very successful run this year.
According to SlashFilm, co-star Aaron Paul said fans can expect the show to return to airwaves beginning July 14. Although the actor seemed confident about the date in his January tweet, he soon followed up the announcement by saying he was “premature” in spreading the good word.
