Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has revealed that crime drama Your Honor will end after two-seasons.
Last year the show was renewed for a second season but it was always intended to be a limited series.
Cranston shared the news on an edition of actor Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast saying: “I am preparing for the second and last season of Your Honor, which is a limited series that I did for Showtime.
“As they tell me, it got higher ratings than any other series they’ve ever had, and so, one more season of that.”
Showtime’s co-president of entertainment Gary Levine previously echoed these sentiments and explained that the show was watched in “record numbers”.
“We were blown away by Your Honor… by the power of Peter [Moffat]’s storytelling, by the depth of Bryan’s performance, and by the overwhelming reaction from our subscribers who watched in record numbers,” shared Levine.
“Imagine our delight when we learned that Peter believed he had more story to tell and Bryan felt he had more depths to plumb. So, along with its millions of fans, I am gleefully shouting ‘Encore!'”
Season 1 of the series saw Cranston as New Orleans judge Michael Desiato, whose son accidentally kills the kid of local mafia boss Jimmy Baxter (played by Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Stuhlbarg).
Recently, Cranston teased the return of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman’s cameos on Better Call Saul who are due to reprise their Breaking Bad characters for the upcoming final episodes.
Speaking on SiriusXM’s Basic! podcast, Cranston said: “There’s a scene that Aaron is in without me. And there’s a scene where I’m in without him. And then there’s a scene where we’re both in.”
