Taking to his Twitter to unveil the news, Breaking Bad lead Aaron Paul revealed to fans when the final eight episodes of AMC’s hit show will return.

UPDATE 2: AMC has announced that the Breaking Bad premiere date is now August 11th. This is a different date than what Paul tweeted (see below). He has since deleted his tweet.

UPDATE: The show may not end after season 6. A Breaking Bad spin off is in the works!

Breaking Bad season 6, also referred to as the second half of season 5, premieres Sunday, July 14. Paul tweeted:

His followers were obviously very excited – at the time of this writing, the tweet has over 15,000 retweets.

In related Breaking Bad-on-Twitter news, co-star Betsy Brandt (who plays Marie Schrader) sent out this teasing tweet:

On one hand, Brandt may be saying that she shot a very important scene. On the other, she may be making a joke about her on-screen husband. In the season 5 finale, Hank connects Walt with Gus while using the White family toilet. If she’s shooting a “big” scene, what could it be involving the supporting role? A big confrontation between Walt and Hank? Hank killing Walt? Marie runs out of purple decorations to purchase?

There are eight episodes in the final season, so the show will be headed for a series finale on September 1 (presuming they take no breaks in premiering episodes).

    This isnt season 6, its the second half of season 5 which is the final season

    • http://www.twitter.com/matsemann08 Matsemann08

      Sure, but everyone regards it as a sixth season after the one year break.

      • CliveRogan

        People thinking something doesn’t mean it is.

        • jdchemist

          yo b. actually perception is everything with people. 6 it if you want

          • CliveRogan

            You’re right, perception is everything, which is why it’s important to set perceptions straight. While it’s hardly a big deal if people think that there are six seasons of Breaking Bad when there aren’t, keeping facts straight now will save many pointless arguments later.

          • http://www.facebook.com/ryan.streibich Ryan Streibich

            season 7?

          • elly

            so let me gets this right there is NO season 6

          • uBunchOfGirls

            what the ^%$# does it matter? it starts in July and its the last bit, just watch it n stop ya bitchin

          • CliveRogan

            It matters for the reasons I originally said. In the grand scheme of things it’s not a big deal, but after being called a cunt for pointing out a fact I think I’ve earned the right to bitch a little.

          • PuzzyLiquor

            On August 14, 2011, AMC announced that Breaking Bad was renewed for a fifth and final season consisting of 16 episodes.[2] Season five is split into two parts, each consisting of 8 episodes. The first half premiered on July 15, 2012, while the second half is scheduled to premiere in summer 2013.
            1 Season 2 Parts.. YALL SHUT THE FUCK UP NOW LOL

          • CliveRogan

            Thank you. I literally don’t get how this is so hard for people to understand.

          • Troy

            you’re kind of a douche though

          • CliveRogan

            I don’t see how that’s relevant.

          • Steve

            I wouldn’t say you’re a cunt. Maybe a pedantic fuck tho :)

          • CliveRogan

            I can live with that :)

          • Molly


          • CliveRogan

            Did you just resurrect an 11 month old thread to call me a cunt for saying something that not only is true but even Hypable wound up agreeing with?

            You my dear have some issues you should look into.

          • daniels

            I heard there were 12 seasons of breaking bad because the producer decided to split up season 1 to 5 into two season an then make another two season…

        • Robbie

          Or the fact that by traditional definition this is a new season. Just because the producer thinks it’s the same season doesn’t make it so either. ya dumb cunt.

          • CliveRogan

            A season by traditional definition is what the producers say is a new season. It’s dictated by production codes, it’s dictated by what is a new season. It doesn’t matter how long a break is, it could be years, but if it’s called the same season by the people that matter, that being the people that make the series, it is the same season.

          • badazz

            You are annoying.

          • CliveRogan

            I can tell you what’s annoying. It’s when you point out a fact to people on the internet, then they pretend it’s not a fact and then badger you for the next month about it. Every few days I log into disqus to find out I’ve been called a cunt, or annoying or accused of bitching, and for what exactly? All I did was say that the second half of season 5 of Breaking Bad is the second half of season 5 of Breaking Bad. I’m not entirely sure what my crime has been.

          • http://www.facebook.com/lawrence.mayo Lawrence Mayo

            You are much worse than Hitler. Stalin loved people compared to you. Why are you such a twisted cannibal child molester?

          • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.purser.37 Daniel Purser

            Shut the fuck up u annoying. Cunt and show us ur titts! Lol

          • gemmler

            what a dick, who really gives a shit what season it is, its new episodes of a good show thats what counts, who cares about facts, its entertainment dickhead

          • daniele

            You’re a smart ass that’s why

          • DERP

            Boring us to death.

          • http://www.facebook.com/mr.Chau.s Huy Chau

            When the season changes from Winter to spring they don’t call it Winter 2nd half…

          • Justin

            That’s an absolutely horrible analogy. Kill yourself.

        • JackIsBack

          Clive, regardless on if you are right or not, you’re still a twat. Nobody cares that you pointed out a fact, but people do care when you won’t stfu about it and need to keep going until they all acknowledge how right and smart you are. In fact, I’m going to start calling it season 6 just so I can imagine you cringing every time I say it.

          Anyway, can’t wait for season 6!

          • Justin

            Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it?

  • RabbitRabbit

    Has Micah seen this picture?

  • Walter White

    Finish the last 6 episodes of season 5 and START ON SEASON 6!!! Don’t end Breaking Bad!!!!

    • Tim

      While I agree with you. I would rather have the series end than have it drag on and be ruined. Of course, you may really be Walter White and would want the series to continue since you might die at the end lol.

      • E.D.L


    • joe

      they wouldn’t make enough money mate to continue the series plus it would ruin it . i think its finishing at just the right time for a tv series.

      • Leona

        NO!!! We want to see what Hank does with the info.

        • Danny

          I have a feeling that the final episodes will tell us what Hank does with the information.

          • aaaaaaaaaa

            lol no shit

          • kajsdnfbiasdb

            thank you informative stranger

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003258567503 Blanco Naranja

  • Lboy823

  • James Bond

  • dazz

  • idahocpa

    it is sad to see another outstanding drama considering or being ended. We are being left with very few shows worth watching anymore. If it is at all possible, for the sake of the fans, please re-consider. This show has proven to be a winner.

  • cole

    whats up with walt and the M60 machine gun in his trunk!!! You got to keep it going LOL

  • victoria

  • victoria

    • Brandon

    • Mar

      What were you thinking when you took this photo?

    • Blessed6

      why the hell are you standing on the toilet Jiggly-Jugs?!

  • Sharprez

    Hank is an accessory to Walt business… Walt pays Hanks medical bills, Hank can be thought of as an inside man to the DEA. Many twists this can take. But whatever they are… It will be good!

  • ace

    Hank killing “Walt” ? More like Hank getting killed by WALTER WHITE !! #J/S

  • http://www.facebook.com/rhowell1965 Rebecca Howell

    I’d love to see Jessie have a spin-off. He could go undercover for the DEA. That would be awesome.

  • Flavio Almeida

    It would be nice to see if Hank breaks bad and take’s over Mike’s role…

  • Big daddy P

    Fuck yea I was hella pissed when I heard they were ending the season they need to make atleast 2 more

  • Heisenberg

    I love breaking bad… this is f****n crazy.. best series ever..

  • the fxxkn truth

    Ok to solves everybody fxxkn problem, you all are going to shut the fxxk up and accept that it’s half of season 5 going into season 6. No one fxxkn cares Wat season it is as long add the new episodes comes back to finish this great amazing fxxkn show. So for all u unwashed masses, idiots, illiterate fxxkn dumazzes, twats, pussys, cunts, and any other low life name that u can think of, be happy that they at least coming with more episodes and are finishing it properly. Btw the walking dead is another big hit, so go jump on that to if u can’t seem to shut the fxxk up about W.e nonsense u guys think ur talking about.

    • Mfot2

      No, it’s definitely season 7!

    • Mfot2

      No, No, Season 8 maybe 9. Wait a minute That was Mary Tyler Moore!

  • David Walker

    One of the best shows to air on TV, ever.

  • pickaname

    I’m an extra, and have chosen to spoil it for all of you. Hank tells Walter he wants to be cut in.

    • Fefifofum


      You WERE an extra
      You MAY have been an extra
      then again you MAY just be a very sad person :)

    I just finished the last episode of season 5 on dvd and I freaked out and yelled at my tv. Why must you tease us until July?!?

  • Baldric

    Remember the start of Series 5. Walt is having his 52nd birthday at a Diner and buys a machine gun (left in the trunk of a car) , we then go back in time to his 51st birthday and see the 8 episodes of ‘series 5′. So I think the final 8 episodes will see the wrap up from the classic ending of Series 5 to the 52nd Birthday shoot-out. Hank the go-hard investigator of the DEA, will apply some subtlety (that Walt’s been using on him) to track, corner & pressure Walt into revealing all – losing (some) of his illicit earnings (well Flynn has to go through college) – Jessie gets away & Skyler ends up with the kids, car wash & a comfortable future. Thereby proving to us all that Crime doesn’t pay but Walt sure had a lot of (intensive) fun!

    • Baldric

      Having reviewed the start again – note Walt has a full head of hair (full recovery? But he takes medicine in the bathroom), he does not wear his wedding ring, has a New Hamshire drivers licence, leaves a $100 tip (after getting a free birthday meal) in the name of Mr Lambert, gets the M60 machine-gun from a NH car (with the licence plate ‘live free or die’)- so I think Series6 will be a whole lot of 180 degree turn around s for all the characters!

    hmmm… I gotta wait til September! Damn it!

  • Trendseterz

    dude breaking bad is so good, and that’s why I need to disagree! it wouldnT ruin the show. great plott, great characters it needs to go further than just 5 seasons….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    there are so many shows that did much more seasons with so much less potential, that letting this show end would only be another wrong decission, I’m just lucky that I’m not responsible….
