Its time to get excited! One of the all-time greatest drama series to ever hit television returns this summer! First, Breaking Bad: Complete Third Season Blu-ray and DVD arrive next Tuesday, June 7th. Then the long-awaited Season 4 premiere of Breaking Bad hits on July 17th. We caught up with series' star Bryan Cranston today to talk about both Season 3 and Season 4, and he decided to drop a bombshell of a tease on us. On the Season 4 Premiere, one of the series' main characters is going to die! And it's anybody's guess as to who will be leaving the show.

Will Walt Jr. (RJ Mitte) finally succumb to the criminal life of his father? Will Hank (Dean Norris) not be able to survive a shoot out due to his Season 3 injuries? Has Walt had enough of Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk)? Or is Jesse (Aaron Paul) finally going to shake hands with the Destiny that was originally planned for him in Season 1 by series creator Vince Gilligan?

Here is what Bryan Cranston had to say about the demise of a key player less than ten minutes into the Emmy-winning AMC series' return.

"There is always a chance that (Aaron Paul) may not make it. Without giving away too many details, there is a character on our show that will not survive the first episode. How about that for a teaser?"


When asked if it was one of the key players, Bryan Cranston confirmed that one of the more beloved characters would not be coming back, further giving us an update on the show.

"Yeah. I will give you a little nugget there. A little tease. (This has) been a great season. This will be the first season that we have wrapped completely. We will be done and gone from New Mexico by the time the first episode airs. There will be some distance from what we are seeing. Again, Season 4 has been masterfully written by Vince Gilligan and his writing staff. To churn out the agony and the ecstasy of these characters? It's like a well-crafted tragedy. It keeps getting tighter and tighter. This life that Walter White has chosen is fraught with complications and tension. And its so exciting to watch it all play out."


Who will live? Who will die? Find out this summer. And be sure to check back in soon, as we have a very detailed Season 4 interview with Bryan Cranston coming shortly.

Breaking Bad episode 4.1, "Box Cutter" stars Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito and is directed by Adam Bernstein.

    Ok so spoiler. I live in New Mexico, and work for a "company" that manufactures and breaks down production sets for the show. So in case you're still in high suspense, let me end that real quick. Mike "the cleaner" will not be making it out alive. Kinda sad. He was an awesome character but they do him bad on the first episode of season 4. Makes you kind of wonder why the writers alluded to this during the sit down chat with Walt in "half measures". Also, notice he's not registered for season 4 on IMDB? Sadness. Anyway, can't wait to watch our stuff this July! -"Yeah Mr. White... Yeah Science!" - Jesse

    First time ever, I think. I don't know, it's just when someone posts the slightest spoiler I get really irritated. I love Breaking Bad and knowing something major like this is going to happen really puts a damper on the unpredictability of the show.

    Movie Web should know better than to post something like that in a title. I don't care who says it, something like that shouldn't me shown on the front page of an entertainment site. Now when I watch I'm going to be expecting and the impact of the scene will be underwhelming because I know it's coming.
