A recent article by the National Report took the internet by storm when it claimed that the multi-awarded, highly-acclaimed AMC crime drama TV series "Breaking Bad" will return for another season and it will start filming January 2015.
"Hollywood, CA — Breaking Bad fans around the world are celebrating the stunning, glorious and amazing news announced today: Walter White is not dead, and there will indeed be a sixth season of the wildly-popular, award-winning AMC drama," the false report read.
The publication even went further by quoting statements from the show creator, Vince Gilligan, and its main lead actor Bryan Cranston (Walter White) confirming the rumors to be true. As it turns out, the entire article was fabricated.
"We've kept it under wraps for months, now the cat's out of the bag. Season 6 is coming, and it's going to be epic and true to the fans that have followed the show so incessantly," the 47-year-old writer and director purportedly said.
They also made up a statement that suggested Bryan Cranston giving hints about his character.
"Hey, you never saw bags zip up or anything. Or say … you know," the award winning actor allegedly stated.
To somehow further solidify the claims, NationalReport.net even included a picture of what appeared to be a script for the first episode of "Breaking Bad" season 6 entitled "The Phoenix."
As expected, thousands of "Breaking Bad" fans took the news by heart and shared it on their social media, enabling it to gain traction.
However, for those who are still wanting for more stories related to the people in Albuquerque, New Mexico, they might enjoy an upcoming spin-off project focused on Saul Goodman (Bob Odendirk) with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould still on board. It will serve as a prequel to the recently-completed "Breaking Bad."
"Better Call Saul" will premiere its first episode on February 15, 2015.
