“Breaking Bad” mastermind says the next, fifth season will be the AMC drama’s last.
Vince Gilligan tells the New York Times:
“This was never intended to be an open-ended show,” he said. “As creators of the show, we have to see it through to the end, to finish what we started.”
Star Bryan Cranston adds:
“We’re able to manipulate time, so that even though we’re four years into the show, we’re only a year into the story,” Mr. Cranston explained. “The conceit was that Walter White was given a diagnosis of two years to live. We’re going to hold to that and, by the end of the series, I can’t imagine him not dying. Although it may not be from lung cancer.”
But will Walt’s family have to perish with him?
