‘Breaking Bad’ Marathon to Air on AMC Leading Up to Series Finale

'Breaking Bad' Marathon Air on AMC

Breaking up is hard to do, especially when bidding adieu to the addictive yarn that is “Breaking Bad.”

To help cushion the blow leading up to the Sept. 29 series finale, network AMC will air a five-day marathon of all seasons of the cult-favorite series. Seasons one through four will air from 8 p.m. Sept. 25 to late Sept. 27. Season five will start at 11 p.m. Sept. 28 and run up to the series finale at 9 p.m. the following day.

Following the last ep, fans can discuss the show’s end (and their separation anxiety) with an expanded one-hour episode of Chris Hardwick’s recap program, “Talking Bad.” Special guests on the live program include series creator Vince Gilligan and cast members Aaron Paul, Jesse Plemmons, RJ Mitte, Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks. Comic  Jimmy Kimmel will also appear. “Low Winter Sun” will air after “Talking Bad” at 11:15 p.m. on Sept. 29 only.

Audiences can also participate in amc.com’s interactive “Breaking Bad Story Sync,” which includes polls, trivia questions and a live chat room.

    I missed the marathon, I didn’t know about it until it was half way through!!!!!! Will they be re-airing all of the episodes? I hope so!!!

    I thought the ending was absolutely perfect in every way. I was most excited about the goofy red head getting it from Jessie. The only thing I would have done different is take out the husband of his ex girl and leave her to pay the kids upon threat of death. SUPER AMAZING SHOW!!!! 10’s

    I love how you would actually need a big bag of meth to pull this marathon off.

  4. Jro says:

    Last episode will be 1:15 min long :)

  5. How long willbthe season finale be…hoping longer than an hour :)

    • Samuel Garvin says:

      It will be 75 minutes apparently. I say this because “Talking bad” is 1 hour and is followed by “Low Winter Sun”, which starts at 11:15. That means “Talking Bad” starts at 10:15, which means finale starts at 9:00pm and ends at 10:15…. so 75 minutes.

  6. The entire cast will be on Conan Monday night.
