Breaking Bad is coming back, yo!

AMC's critically acclaimed drama, starring Emmy winners Bryan Cranstonand Aaron Paul, will return July 15 at 10 p.m., the network announced today.

So how much of the self-appointed drug kingpin and his hapless sidekick will we see?

Eight episodes of Bad's supersized fifth and last season, currently filming on location in Albuquerque, will air on Sundays this summer, with the series' final eight episodes following in summer 2013.

Once a mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher who becomes a meth cooker to support his family (as people do) after his terminal cancer diagnosis, Walter White (Cranston) is now a violent, cunning, narcissistic and remorseless killer. Forget "breaking"—Mr. White, aka Heisenberg, done broke bad by last season's shocking finale.

And we can't wait to see him bring it again this summer.

AMC also announced that its Western drama Hell on Wheels returns with its second season Aug. 12 at 9 p.m. Small Town Security, AMC's new unscripted series, will follow Breaking Bad in the 11 p.m. time slot.

Ready to break some bad this summer? What do you think Walt and Jesse will do next?
