We’re only one episode into the first half of the final season of Breaking Bad and, if you’re like me, you’re already dreading the end. Vince Gilligan‘s show is so good, so tense and so fun that every episode is like Christmas morning. With meth and murder. Still, every great show has to end and Breaking Bad has eight total episodes this year and then eight total episodes next year before hanging up the lab coat.
The show runner hasn’t decided what he’ll do after that, there’s still lots to do with this show, but one idea he’s floated around is a spin-off centering on Bob Odenkirk‘s sleazy, but smart, lawyer character Saul Goodman.

Even by Breaking Bad standards, the explosive Season 4 finale was one of the most intense the series had ever done — so we’re extra pumped to see what else creator Vince Gilligan have planned for Walter White (Bryan Cranston), who these days is definitely more Scarface than Mr. Chips.
With less than a week to go until the fifth season premiere, AMC is cranking up their Breaking Bad marketing. Today, we’ve got a new trailer, a behind-the-scenes video, and a sneak peek clip after the jump. Major spoilers for Season 4 abound, so if you’re not caught up I suggest you walk away and get yourself up to speed ASAP. We’ll still be here when you get back.

Fans of AMC’s incredible show Breaking Bad may not know that, a few months back, comedian Paul Scheer created a site called Breaking Gifs where he would post funny and weird GIF files related to the show. The idea seemed out there, fun but also incredibly suspicious. In 2009, Scheer did something similar for Lost when he started a site called Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear. At first, the site was just a weird internet thing but it soon evolved into a full blown phenomenon with exclusive pieces of art by Olly Moss, Eric Tan, Tyler Stout, Daniel Danger, Kevin Tong and more. The event is widely thought to have kicked off the current pop culture art craze.
And it’s happening again.
BreakingGifs.com has now officially changed formats and we can exclusively reveal it’s the start of a viral campaign to promote the upcoming final season of Breaking Bad on AMC. Curated and run by Tyson Givens and Gallery 1988, each week the site will link to a new piece of Breaking Bad themed art by well-known and up and coming artists, all leading up to the show’s premiere this Summer.
