Filming on Breaking Bad season 5 started earlier this week, and actress Betsy Brandt recently spoke in a new interview about her reactions to the premiere episode script!
She told MovieWeb:
“(They start shooting) tomorrow, but I’m not going until a little bit later. But yes, they’re going. It’s happening. I read the first episode, and oh my God. Holy shit. That’s all I can say. After Season 4, I was like, ‘What could they do?’ They’re phenomenal.”
Interestingly she went on to reveal that the remaining sixteen episodes of the series will be shot in two halves:
“We’re doing eight, and then we’re taking a break, and then we’re doing eight. I look at it as two short seasons, but we’ll see what they do. I don’t know. We’re starting tomorrow, that’s what I know. I don’t even know when it’s going to air. I think July, but don’t hold me to that. I think we’ll stay in July, but I don’t know what they’re going to do. They don’t let me make those decisions.”
It’s still not clear whether these remaining sixteen episodes will be a part of one season or two. As always, we’ll keep you updated!
