Just when you thought “Breaking Bad” was all wrapped up (other than the Emmys), here comes a Spanish-language version of AMC’s hit drama. Instead of Walter White we have Walter Blanco. Instead of an RV we get a school bus. Instead of Albuquerque, New Mexico, we’re in Bogota, Colombia.
Yet the pork pie hat remains. So does the shaved head, slo-mo shot of explosive crystal, and tighty-whiteys. It’s all the “Breaking Bad” you’ve come to know and love, just in a new language, with new actors, and on a new channel.
“Metastasis” will air telenovela style on Univision, Unimas, and Galavision; meaning a new episode will premiere every night for viewers accustomed to their dramas pumping out new material quickly. The whole series will have aired in just three months on Unimas, an extended binge-viewing of sorts for fans.
Take a look at the EW exclusive trailer below to see Walt and Jesse back in action, and then watch the extended trailer for an older but longer peak at the remake. “Metastasis” premiered last night, June 8th, without subtitles.
