'Breaking Bad' to show on Netflix UK each Monday post-broadcast

The series will also be available in the U.K. and Ireland on the Monday after broadcast, starting August 12.


The final episodes of the wildly popular "Breaking Bad" will start airing next month, and just a day later, they'll be available to Netflix customers in the U.K. and Ireland.

Netflix said Friday that starting August 12 -- a day after the show returns for the final half of its final season -- its streaming customers in the U.K. and Ireland will be able to stream the latest "Breaking Bad" episode. Following that, "Breaking Bad" will be available each Monday after the show airs in the U.S.

"Breaking Bad," which follows Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher turned crystal meth kingpin, has been a breakout hit for years on both TV and Netflix. All previous seasons of the show are currently airing on Netflix.

Netflix didn't say when the final episodes of "Breaking Bad" will be delivered to its U.S. customers.
