Bradley Walsh fans issued sad news

Both Brad and Barney are both gearing up to present the rebooted Gladiators in 2024. So it’s fair to say the pair are booked and busy! So much so, there’s no time to film a series of Breaking Dad any time soon…

A source alleged to The Sun: “They’re thrilled to be back together for a sixth series of Breaking Dad, where they genuinely have as much fun as it looks on screen.” The insider then claimed the new series will be the “wildest” yet.

Bradley Walsh Breaking Dad 2024 series is unlikely

However, despite a series dropping every January since 2019, because of how busy they are – a 2024 series is reportedly unlikely.

The source added: “Filming is expected to kick off later this year when Bradley and Barney can commit time to being away from the UK together. It can take five to six weeks on the road to film the entire Breaking Dad series. So it is thought there’ll be a longer wait for fans. With transmission most likely in 2025.”

Entertainment Daily has contacted ITV for comment.
