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.
Here’s what Gould had to say (via Twitter):
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.
