Breaking Bad Season 3

Multiple media outlets are now reporting that Breaking Bad has been renewed for a fourth season by AMC.

Deadline.com's Nellie Andreeva reports the deal had been in the works for some months, and the sticking point had been closing the negotiated gap in the production budget between $3.1 and $3.3 million. Either number would be well above the conventional cost of about $2 million for an hour long cable drama, and closer to the typical cost of a broadcast drama.
