Seriality, Repetition and Innovation in Breaking Bad’s Recaps and Teasers

Nicola M. Dusi


In this article we face some rhetorical and socio-semiotical operations that contribute to build the serial narrative ecosystems, focusing on the Breaking Bad case.

Finally, we will propose a typology of recaps that considers seriality expanded over several seasons.
