<i>Breaking Bad</i> Returns July 15

AMC has at last announced the date for the return of Breaking Bad: The critically acclaimed drama will kick off its fifth and (sadly) final season Sunday, July 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Just as the cable network has done with The Walking Dead, the 16-episode season will be spit in two -- although with Breaking Bad the wait will be longer, as the final eight episodes won't air until summer 2013. AMC also announced that its Western Hell on Wheels will return for its second season Aug. 12.

Breaking Bad stars Emmy winners Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as well as Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks.
