Over the past five seasons, AMC's "Breaking Bad" has established itself as one of television's most popular programs. The drama that follows a meth-dealing cancer patient through the seedy underworld of Albuquerque has become a cult classic. The show is now approaching its final season, despite fans' dismay, but the cast assures that the best has yet to come.
The second half of the final fifth season (often dubbed season 6) of "Breaking Bad" will be released in summer 2013 and promises to bring a dramatic close to the series. As a gift to loyal fans, AMC has released a new on-set promo for the final episodes. The video features the show's biggest stars and hints at what viewers can expect. One thing's for sure, it's going to be one wild conclusion to the veteran series.
"This is the end, my friend. It's a roller coaster ride to hell," says Bryan Cranston, who plays Walt, the meth-dealing protagonist turned power hungry megalomaniac.
"We are here shooting, sadly, the final season. We're shooting a pretty wild scene between [Bob Odenkirk's character Saul Goodman] and I," says Aaron Paul, Walt's junkie sidekick Jesse.
"The 'Breaking Bad' season finale is going to be so incredible," Odenkirk claims. Odenkirk's character, Saul, is a two-faced lawyer who helps Walt and Jessie launder their money and avoid the law by unconventional means.
"Hank, he doesn't know to handle me. He doesn't know where to come from," Cranston says. Hank is Walt's DEA agent brother-in-law who is constantly one step behind Walt. There have been numerous hints in season five that he's on the verge of discovering Walt's secret that could destroy the already tattered family fabric.
There's plenty to look forward to in the last installment of "Breaking Bad." Although nothing had been set in stone, the show's writers had a general idea about where the show was going from the very beginning, so everything we've seen so far has led to this. The dark, twisted series finale is finally upon us and it promises to be nothing short of perfect.
