James Hibberd on Breaking Bad:
Emmy-winning series star Bryan Cranston says AMC will break the award-winning drama’s final 16-episode season into two separate runs, as has been speculated for months. “We’re splitting it,” says Cranston, who’s currently shooting the fifth season premiere in New Mexico. “We’re going to shoot the first eight, then take a four-month production break, then the rest will air next year.”
The network has not announced a premiere date for Breaking Bad, though actors on the show say the drama will return in July.
Not a huge shock. This is kind of what I figured would happen. Either way, the conclusion of this season is highly anticipated.
