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).
