Hey, 'Breaking Bad' fans: it's tough saying goodbye, but the show's creators have revealed something of a last-minute parting gift to help soothe those wounds. The final two episodes of the show will run 75 minutes each, with commercials. That's an extra half an hour total of final moments to remember, or to tweet about while watching. Or, if you're one of The Atlantic Wire's newbie 'Breaking Bad' recappers, a half an hour more to hate on Aaron Paul.
Here's more from 'Breaking Bad' writer and co-executive producer Peter Gould:
I checked & it's official. Last 2 #BreakingBad eps are 75 minutes each w/commercials. Set your DVRS accordingly. Better still, watch live!— petergould (@petergould) September 18, 2013
Last week's episode "Ozymandias,” by the way, was the most-watched episode of the entire series. And as the Hollywood Reporter notes, the more recent episodes from the show's final (half) season have also been a few minutes longer than their normal 1-hour runtime with commercials, pushing 'Low Winter Sun's' start time further and further into the 10 p.m. hour.
The final two episodes air September 22 and 29, from 9 to 10:15 p.m.
