Breaking Bad

Looks like viewers will get to see more of Walter White's transition from meek chemistry teacher to meth kingpin: Breaking Bad has been renewed for a third season.

The Peabody Award-winning AMC drama, which earned lead actor Bryan Cranston an Emmy for best actor, is four episodes into its second season. Production is expected to begin later this year on the third season, slated to air in 2010.

In an interview with TVGuide.com, Cranston said creator Vince Gilligan plans to tell the story of White's complete transformation from timid family man to ruthless drug dealer. Viewers have already seen Walt cook meth and kill, and his attempts to provide for his family before he succumbs to cancer will only take him to darker territory.

Are you excited the Breaking Bad saga will continue?
