Breaking Bad is just about over, but viewers will be treated to an extended runtime in each of the series’ final two episodes.  Series’ co-executive producer and writer Peter Gould announced on Twitter today that both the upcoming penultimate and the final episode of AMC’s hit drama will feature 15 additional minutes, taking them each to a 75-minute runtime (including commercials).  That means audiences will have a total of an extra half-hour to say goodbye to Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and the rest of the cast in whatever manner of departure awaits each of them.  Hit the jump for more.

I checked & it’s official. Last 2
#BreakingBad eps are 75 minutes each w/commercials. Set your DVRS accordingly. Better still, watch live!

It’s just delaying the inevitable, but if the final two episodes are even half as good as the last episode, “Ozymandias”, then viewers are in for a treat.  If you’re all caught up on the series, be sure to check out Allison’s recap of the most recent episode.  Episode director Rian Johnson (Looper) also offered up some behind-the-scenes commentary and images, while series star Dean Norris (Under the Dome) talked about filming the final episodes.  You can also check out this newly-released series poster that paid special attention to fans, cast and crew, and offered them up a thanks for years of tuning in.  And once it’s all said and done, be sure to pick up the entire series in this epic Blu-ray collection.
