As if anyone was worried, AMC announced today that it has renewed their original series Breaking Bad for Season 4. Season 3 ratings were up almost 20% over last years numbers and DVD sales have been very strong. The series, created by The X-Files writer Vince Gilligan, wrapped up its third season last night.
AMC said, “AMC’s Breaking Bad is one of the most layered and intense dramas on television today,” said Joel Stillerman, Senior Vice President of original programming, production and digital content, in a statement. “The critical acclaim and strong audience growth we’ve seen in season three reinforce that this is the kind of exceptional original storytelling AMC has become known for providing to audiences. Vince Gilligan and his team deliver bold storylines that truly push the psychic envelope and create a mesmerizing, exhilarating television experience. We look forward to an incredible fourth season.”
