"Breaking Bad" fans, prepare for one final fix. A 16 episode-long fix.
AMC renewed the critically acclaimed drama for a fifth and final season, the network announced Sunday. The final season will begin in early 2012 and AMC has yet to schedule the premiere date.
"It's a funny irony, I'd hate to know the date of my own last day on earth, but I'm delighted to know what Walter White's will be -- episodically speaking," showrunner Vince Gilligan says in a statement. "This is a great gift to me and to my wonderful writers. It's knowledge which will allow us to properly build our story to a satisfying conclusion. Now, if we don't manage to pull that off, we've got no one to blame but ourselves."
