At the Academy of Arts and Sciences, Conan O’Brien moderated a panel interview for AMC with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan as well as cast members Bryan Cranston, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk, Betsy Brandt, Jonathan Banks and RJ Mitte.
The group discussed the legacy of the show and also what might be in store for Walter White and crew during the final eight episodes. An admitted fan of the AMC drama, O’Brien humorously conducted the 70-minute interview which includes Cranston discussing his Breaking Bad logo tattoo. Answering a fan’s question about a Saul Goodman spin-off, Gilligan replied, “I would very much like to see that happen, and we are talking about it.” For more on this, fast forward to the 50-minute mark.
In bittersweet news, AMC announced the final season of Breaking Bad will make its premiere on Aug. 11. The season consists of the final eight episodes of the fifth season.
Good news for those itching for more meth-drama in their life, AMC also announced they plan to air a weekly post-show titled Talking Bad, similar to the format of the Walking Dead talk show, Talking Dead.
