Vince Gilligan Talks Final Seasons of BREAKING BAD; Says There ‘Is Some Crazy-Ass Shit Coming Up’

     July 28, 2012


On the red carpet of this year’s Saturn Awards, I was able to get a few minutes with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan.  While he was guarded about spoiling any of the upcoming twists and turns, he revealed there “is some crazy-ass shit coming up” and that the show gets “darker, edgier, crazier than ever.”

In addition, we also talked about the opening shots of the fifth season, does he know how the final season will play out, is there any chance the final season could be more than eight episodes, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Vince Gilligan Time Index:

  • 0:10 – Talks about preventing spoilers for the upcoming season, but says there “is some crazy-ass shit coming up.”  He comments on the first eight episodes of the fifth and final season.
  • 1:05 – Says the meaning behind the opening to the first episode of this season will soon be revealed and there will be a payoff, but not necessarily in the first eight episodes.
  • 2:00 – Comments on mapping the story out beforehand or figuring it out as the show progresses.  He admits there’s still a lot they don’t know.
  • 3:20 – Although Gilligan now thinks that 16 episodes won’t be enough for the full story, he also says that the promise has been made and they’re going to have to make it work.  He says the fact that Cranston has floated the notion of a Breaking Bad feature was new to him.
