Binge-viewing alert: the latest Breaking Bad episodes are coming to Netflix Friday

Breaking Bad, a mainstay of the cable drama circuit, could be your next binge-TV bender.
Starting Friday, Netflix will add the last eight episodes of the show , which follows a science teacher who gets mixed up in the methamphetamine trade–that’s on top of the first five seasons. Viewers can brush up before the final eight episodes air beginning in August.
While it’s not as sweet a deal as what UK viewers enjoy — they are able to watch new episodes of the show just a day after they broadcast in the U.S. — it’s something.
The popular series is part of Netflix’s push into original programming, with shows like House of CardsArrested Development, and, most recently, Orange is the New Black.
