Breaking Bad fans will be thrilled at the news that the second half of the fifth - and final - series will return to screens in the summer.
AMC announced that the last eight episodes of the Emmy-winning drama series, which stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as meth cooks Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, will be shown in the US from August 11, reported Collider.
UK viewers will be able to watch the show via Netflix afterwards.
The hit show, which has scooped seven Primetime Emmy Award wins since it started in 2008, will be accompanied by a half-hour talk show, Talking Bad, which will feature summary and discussion with celebrity fans, the cast and crew.
Bryan has said that the final episodes will be "satisfying" for fans.
"It's going to be a wonderful surprise, these last eight episodes, for how it's resolved. I can only say that I think, personally and honestly, it's going to be very satisfying for the fans. When I read the finale, I thought, 'Oh, yeah! Yep!'," he said at a Breaking Bad evening held by the Academy of Television.
