TCA: Buckle up for “Breaking Bad’s” third season

Breakingbadbcap

Get ready for an action packed, emotionally jarring ride on the third season of AMC’s Breaking Bad which bows March 21.
Without giving away too much, series creator Vince Gilligan promised that it would be a momentous season for the key characters. It will be especially active for Anna Gunn, who plays the long-in-the-dark wife of Bryan Cranston’s Walter White, the cancer-stricken high school chemistry teacher who turns to meth manufacturing and dealing to support his family.

Walter will face incredible consequences for his actions over the past two seasons, Gilligan said during Saturday’s TCA panel, which also included Cranston, Gunn, Aaron Paul and Bob Odenkirk.
“Walter is like Dr. Frankenstein – with good intentions he’s created a monster,” Gilligan said.
Cranston (pictured above left with Aaron Paul) quickly joked that “Elsa Lanchester is going to star in our show.”
But quips aside, Gilligan and Cranston spoke at length about the challenge of doing a show where the character is changing so dramatically with every season.
