Maybe it still hasn’t sunk in that “Breaking Bad” is gone.

AMC reportedly will pick up two new shows to try and sustain momentum, especially since the final season of “Mad Men” also is in the works.

According to Defamer online, one show, called “Knifeman,” is about a surgeon in the late 1700s who is “unorthodox” — perhaps he eschews leechings?

The other, a sci-fi saga called “Galyntine,” is set in a dystopian future.

Stay tuned, as they say.
