There’s a new sheriff in town.

AMC has unveiled the official key art for the first half of Breaking Bad‘s fifth and final season and, not surprisingly, it plays up Walt’s (Bryan Cranston) ascension to full-fledged drug kingpin.

“No longer under the thumb of a mastermind criminal, Walt now assumes the role of one himself, as he and Jesse (Aaron Paul) look to build their own empire,” reads the official Season 5 logline. “Meanwhile, Skyler (Anna Gunn) struggles with the reality of her husband’s new role and Hank (Dean Norris) works to wrap up his investigation of Gus’ business.”

Breaking Bad‘s swan song season, to be split up into two eight-episode chunks, will kick off on July 15 at 10/9c.
