We’re going to have to wait a little longer than planned for the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad season 5, otherwise known as Breaking Bad season 6.

Despite comments from Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul that the Breaking Bad premiere date was set for July 14th, AMC announced today that Breaking Bad season 6′s air date is now August 11th.

In addition, the show will gain a live post-analysis talk show called Talking Bad. The show will be similar to The Talking Dead, which is The Walking Dead’s post-analysis talk show. There’s no word yet on who will host the talk show, but we know it will be a 30-minute program and air at 11 PM ET the night of new episodes.

Breaking Bad season 6 premieres Sunday, August 11th at 9 PM ET/PT on AMC.

Though these are the final eight episodes, this may not be the end of the Breaking Bad franchise afterall. AMC and creator Vince Gilligan are reportedly planning a Breaking Bad spin off focusing on Saul Goodman, the goofy lawyer who’s often the comic relief on the show.

The Breaking Bad season 5 finale was the most-watched episode to date, garnering 2.9 million viewers.

We’re a bit disappointed that we have to wait a bit longer for the show, but on the other hand this will give the show an opportunity to make a big splash at Comic-Con San Diego ahead of the premiere.

    Not that we’ve waited long enough! :/ But, if it’s to give a little extra time to ensure that the series ends PERFECTLY then I don’t think anyone could complain about that.

      They shot this season two years ago… Not seeing a reason for the delay… Guessing its just AMC playing with our emotions by messing with scheduling and cutting seasons in half… Lame…

    I’ve just watched all five series and now feel bereft! I can’t wait to see the final episodes. I always thought that the UK made the best dramas but Breaking Bad has been amazing!

  • you’re wrong

    It’s not season 6, it’s the second half of season 5.
