The second season of AMC’s hit series Breaking Bad will premiere on Spike UK on Friday April 24th at 11pm, it has been announced.
Created by Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad follows Walter White a mild-mannered chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife and teenage son who has cerebral palsy. When White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of only two years left to live, he becomes filled with a sense of fearlessness and an unrelenting desire to secure his family’s financial future at any cost as he enters the dangerous world of drugs and crime. The drama series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and stars Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, RJ Mittie, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris and Betsy Brandt.
In the show’s second season, Walt’s trademark blue meth is making him and Jesse rich, but it’s getting more difficult than ever for Walt to conceal the truth from his wife Skyler, his son Walter Jr., and his DEA agent brother-in-law Hank. Walt struggles to maintain control of his life as he contends with vicious drug dealers, an increasingly distant wife and son, the impending birth of his daughter, and a strung-out business partner – all while battling terminal lung cancer. Giancarlo Esposito and Bob Odenkirk make their first appearances this season as Gus Fring and Saul Goodman, respectively.
