Ready for some breaking news about AMC’s The Walking Dead, Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Killing?
– The previously announced third season of The Walking Dead will be 16 episodes, three episodes longer than season two.
– The Killing season 2 will premiere April 1. Yes, that’s right, the show that infuriated viewers with its non-resolution ending (and now plans to still not reveal who killed Rosie Larsen until the end of season two) is coming back on April Fools Day (the same as the second season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, a show whose creative twists also frustrated some viewers). The Killing premiere will be two hours.
– AMC also officially confirmed the March 25 premiere date for the return of Mad Men, and added that the premiere will also be two hours.
– While there’s no official date for Breaking Bad season five, AMC says the show will return sometime in the third quarter of this year.
