Breaking Bad Season 6? Vince Gilligan Says Show ‘Begins Shooting Jan. 2015–Walt did Not Die’ Article Entrely False; Show Not Renewed After Season 5

August 25, 2014 Updated: August 26, 2014

Breaking Bad Season 6 filming exist. An article saying it will start shooting January 2015 is nothing more than a hoax.

The fake report, which includes bogus quotes from Vince Gilligan, was posted on the National Report, a satirical website. It also includes fake quotes from Walter White actor Bryan Cranston. 

“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,” it says.

Breaking Bad ended last year after five seasons.

The National Report has a disclaimer, which has since been removed.

The disclaimer used to say, “DISCLAIMER: National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental . The views expressed by writers on this site are theirs alone and are not reflective of the fine journalistic and editorial integrity of National Report.”

A real “editorial” from the National Report recently said the website publishes satirical news reports after it got a negative reactions about a false story of a NYPD officer shooting a baby over a breastfeeding-related argument.

“Satire is not required to be humorous, nor was this particular post meant to be funny,” it says. It adds: “The people of the modern world need to understand and develop the ability to corroborate information and not just accept information as true without further inputs.  Absolutely baseless information is spread by ACTUAL news sources on a daily basis and have resulted in a serious divide without our country.”

AP update:

‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Modern Family’ win Emmy Awards 
LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Modern Family” and “Breaking Bad” triumphed at Monday’s Emmy Awards, proving that established broadcast and cable fare retains the power to fend off challenges from upstart online series such as “Orange Is the New Black.”

The ceremony’s emotional high point came with Billy Crystal’s restrained and graceful remembrance of Robin Williams, who died Aug. 11 by suicide.

“He made us laugh. Hard. Every time you saw him,” Crystal said of Williams at the conclusion of a tribute to industry members who died within the past 12 months. “Robin Williams, what a concept.”

ABC’s “Modern Family” won a fifth best comedy series Emmy, tying the record set by “Frasier,” while the final season of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” captured the top drama award and a trio of acting honors for its stars.

Netflix’s freshman “Orange Is the New Black,” which competed for best comedy series despite its dark prison setting, failed to sway Emmy voters, as did Netflix’s sophomore series “House of Cards.”

Bryan Cranston was honored as best actor in a drama for “Breaking Bad,” proving that “True Detective” nominee Matthew McConaughey’s movie-star appeal couldn’t conquer all.

“I have gratitude for everything that has happened,” Cranston said. His victory ties him with four-time best drama actor champ Dennis Franz. Cranston’s co-stars Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn were honored in categories for best drama supporting acting,

“Thank you for this wonderful farewell to our show,” ”Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan said of the series about a teacher-turned-drug kingpin that ended with a bang.

A broadcast win was scored by ABC’s “The Good Wife” star Julianna Margulies, honored as best lead actress in a drama series. “What a wonderful time for women on television,” Margulies said.

McConaughey was the object of too-handsome jokes by presenter Jimmy Kimmel and adoration by winner Gail Mancuso, honored as best director for an episode of “Modern Family.” It was one of the better gags of the night.

“If you don’t mind, Matthew McConaughey, I’m gonna make eye contact with you right now,” she said from the stage, making good by holding the actor’s gaze for much of her speech.

The ceremony honoring the best of TV wasn’t shy about playing the movie-star card. “Six minutes to Woody Harrelson” flashed on screen during Colin Bucksey’s acceptance speech for best miniseries direction for “Fargo.”

Harrelson and his “True Detective” co-star were given time to banter before announcing that Benedict Cumberbatch of “Sherlock: His Last Vow” was the winner of the best miniseries actor award.
