DVR alert: The final two ‘Breaking Bad’ episodes will run long
If you’re a heavy DVR user whose Sunday nights are jam-packed, it may be best to do some advance planning for the next two weeks. The final two episodes of “Breaking Bad” will be running a bit long.
“Breaking Bad” co-executive producer Peter Gould announced to fans via Twitter on Wednesday that the episodes would be 15 minutes longer than normal.
“I checked & it’s official. Last 2 #BreakingBadeps are 75 minutes each w/commercials. Set your DVRS accordingly. Better still, watch live!” he wrote.
The penultimate episode, “Granite State,” will air opposite the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, where “Breaking Bad” is up for six awards, including outstanding drama series and leading actor for Bryan Cranston.
For those following the discussion on social media, it means the grousing about the “Breaking Bad” follower, “Low Winter Sun,” will begin 15 minutes later than usual.
Last week’s episode of “Breaking Bad,” “Ozymandias,” drew the series’ largest audience to date with 6.37 million viewers.
