Just in case you want to plan our your TV-watching schedule extremely far in advance, we now have a way for you to do just that courtesy of the return date for the final episodes of “Breaking Bad” season 5. The show has been production as of late in New Mexico, and we are not sure that there is a program as hotly-anticipated at this point as the return of Walter White following some of the big revelations made by Hank in last summer’s finale.
In a new post on Twitter, it was none other than series star Aaron Paul who announced that the show would be back once again in the middle of July; specifically, on July 14. Take a look at his full message below:
“New episodes of Breaking Bad will air July 14th. Get ready to break some sh*t.”
Will this season live up to all of the expectations? This is going to be the biggest challenge for executive producer Vince Gilligan, mostly because this is a show where expectations are so through the roof that it is almost impossible to do so. Plus, you also have to find a way to make an ending that people not only like, but haters do not want to spend most of their time bashing over and over again. There’s no tougher challenge, after all, then trying to find a way to craft a satisfying conclusion for a beloved series.
In all likelihood, “Breaking Bad” is probably going to return to TV soon after the finale of “Mad Men” season 6, which is likely going to premiere at some point in either late March or early April depending on whether or not AMC wants to wait to watch the show until after “The Walking Dead” is over for the season. They also have “The Killing” season 3 to think about, but we expect this show to air a little later in this year this time around following the delay in starting production.

Update: Paul is now saying that the date is not confirmed and possibly incorrect, and he apologized for confusing any fans.
