Though the announcement of spinoffs for both 'Breaking Bad' and 'The Walking Dead' should have given us a clue, 'Mad Men' fans were surprised to find that AMC would make yet another attempt to extend its most profitable programs, adding an episode to the final season in order to divide 14 among two runs through 2015. Now, series creator Matthew Weiner has spoken out to offer his thoughts on the move, as well as shoot down the idea of a spinoff.
As hard as it will be to say goodbye to Bryan Cranston's Walter White and those still left alive in the cast, 'Breaking Bad' has made its goodbye a little longer by extending the final two episodes to seventy-five minutes a piece.
The announcements that AMC had decided to re-cancel 'The Killing,' spinoff 'Breaking Bad' into a 'Better Call Saul' prequel and add a 'Walking Dead' companion series spinoff for 2015 had us wondering if 'Mad Men' would be the next target to fill the rapidly-expanding holes in AMC's lineup, and it seems we were right. The network has decided to split 'Mad Men's seventh and "final" season between 2014 and 2015, expanding each run as 'Breaking Bad' did before them.
Lately we've seen AMC get a little spinoff-happy with its most successful properties, today announcing a "companion series" to branch off from 'The Walking Dead,' while 'Breaking Bad' prequel 'Better Call Saul' moves forward with its own series order, but would the cable network dare to spinoff the story of 'Mad Men?' Find out what series creator Matthew Weiner has to say about the "completely new story" in store for Don Draper next season!
Not that we should be altogether surprised that AMC continues to grasp at straws following the imminent end of 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men''s final season in the coming year, and the sputtering of 'Low Winter Sun,' but 'The Walking Dead' has officially spawned as well. AMC will develop a "companion series" spinoff to the monster drama focusing on a different corner of the zombie apocalypse, so what do we know thus far?
We're still not quite sure if we're ready to laugh at 'Breaking Bad' when AMC moves forward on the 'Better Call Saul' spinoff, but fortunately Jimmy Fallon knows just how to strike the tone. Fallon's latest 'Late Night' parody sees the future 'Tonight Show' host "Joking Bad" with some incredible and surprising cameos, the best way to start your morning.
Devastated though we may be that 'Breaking Bad' will soon come to a close, leaving our jaws on the desert floor with each subsequent episode, we didn't think the real nightmare would ever come to pass. Spinoff series 'Better Call Saul' has officially been greenlit at AMC as a prequel to the story of Walter White, and there doesn't seem to be enough blue stuff in the world to cope with the news.
Familiar, if sad news today for fans of AMC's rain-soaked murder-mystery drama 'The Killing,' as it seems Holder and Linden will once again turn in their badges. After a unanimously improved third season rescued from the cancellation heap and co-financed by Netflix, AMC has opted not to proceed with a fourth season of the Joel Kinnaman-Mireille Enos starring drama.
Much like the final episodes of 'Breaking Bad,' AMC continues to keep a tight lid on 'The Walking Dead' season 4, even with the new promos. The latest to arrive with Sunday's 'Breaking Bad' episode, "Rabid Dog," offers a tantalizing tidbit, as a frightened voice begs for help! Who from Rick's group might be in trouble this season, or is there a new mystery afoot?
We've always enjoyed comparing 'The Walking Dead' to its comic roots, something originally thought to be made difficult by season 3 finale "Welcome to the Tombs" incorporating one of the largest deviations yet. As we approach season 4 however, executive producers have revealed that an upcoming episode will unfold almost "verbatim" from the books, while another may see the Governor more closely resembling his literary counterpart as well!
