Breaking Bad Final Episodes Announced

AMC has finally closed a deal with Sony Pictures TV to renew “Breaking Bad” for a 16 episode run which will conclude the series reports Deadline.

Production on the episodes will commence in early 2012 with their air dates to be determined by the network, though it’s expected the eps will be split into two separate seasons.

It’s expected both showrunner Vince Gilligan along with actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will renegotiate their deals, but the important thing is the show is not only set but both AMC and Sony have worked out the thorny issue of the show’s over $3 million per episode budget which they will both contribute towards.
