‘Breaking Bad’ Season 5 Gets a Poster Fit For a King
‘Game of Thrones‘ season 2 has fallen. After last night’s ‘Mad Men,’ the most regal member of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce now hangs from the rafters. From such despair, when will our new king rise? On July 15, of course, when AMC premieres the fifth and final season of ‘Breaking Bad!’ But with all of Walter’s enemies gone, what’s left to do but hail to the king, baby?
With ‘Breaking Bad’s fifth season premiere a little over a month away, today AMC debuts the supremely bad-ass new one-sheet for the new half-season of Walter White’s wacky adventures. AMC will air the first half of the season in eight all-new installments, while the final stretch of episodes will air sometime in 2013.
But with Walter seemingly triumphing over his enemies at the conclusion of last year’s season finale “Face Off,” who’s left to threaten the former chemistry teacher’s reign? Apparently no one, if the poster is to be believed, as Walter sits alone in his classic lawn chair, surrounded by the stacks of money and meth that have made his life so very colorful of late. And let’s not forget about that machine gun lying behind the cash! Where’s Jesse? And might this new warehouse represent a base of operations for Walter’s re-vitalized trade?
Elsewhere, not much is known about ‘Breaking Bad’s final season, other than that ‘Battleship‘ and ‘Friday Night Lights’ star Jesse Plemons will take a role as “Todd, a dependable, innocuous, working-class guy [who] may not be what he appears to be.”
In any case, check out the awesome new ‘Breaking Bad’ season 5 poster below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
