AMC’s Breaking Bad is just over a week away from coming to a conclusion, fans of the hit series will get to spend a little more time saying farewell as the final two episodes are extended from their usual running time.
Executive producer and writer Peter Gould confirmed the news on Twitter where he informed his followers that the last two episodes will be “75 minutes each w/ commercials”. Taking out the commercial breaks we’re looking at just under an hour a piece, after the shocking fallout of episode 14 we can’t wait to see how it all ends for Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
To celebrate the impending finale, a new poster was also released which thanked the fans who ‘made bad so good’. The picture shows the infamous spot in the desert where Walter and Jesse performed their very first cook, likely a teasing clue about the final two episodes or just a tip of the hat to the iconic location which lead Walter down his dangerous path.
Although we’re saying goodbye to Walter we’ll be revisiting the world created by Vince Gilligan in the near future. AMC are moving ahead with the prequel spin-off series, Better Call Saul, which will see Bob Odenkirk reprise his role as shady lawyer Saul Goodman.
Breaking Bad’s penultimate episode Granite State will air this Sunday on AMC and UK fans can catch it on Netflix from Monday.
