Those who like unicorns, rainbows and happy endings won't find much comfort in AMC's ingenious tragicomedy about a meth-dealing chemistry teacher with cancer.
But Breaking Bad is hilarious—and shocking, scary and heartbreaking. And the third season, which premieres tonight, "is bigger and badder than any season that's come before it," show runner Vince Gilligan tells us exclusively.
Bigger and badder than season two's tragic events? (Season-two spoiler alert: Bryan Cranston's Walt tries to rationalize the disaster to Aaron Paul's devastated Jesse in the video clip above.) Oh yes, Gilligan and the award-winning cast insisted to us. Read on for more exclusive scoop, spoilers and a video introduction of two pivotal new characters.
