It’s official. AMC and Breaking Bad are will continue to go steady until graduation. Though the couple flirted with the idea of breaking up (Breaking Bad even gave its number to rival networks), they’ve worked out their issues and will remain exclusive for a final run of sixteen episodes. The plan is to begin production in early 2012 and film them all at once with the potential of teasing viewers by splitting them up into two seasons. Bryan Cranston will then be free to appear in every movie.
It’s projected that Walter Jr. will deliver an estimated six lines of dialogue in the final sixteen episodes.
