The good news: AMC announced today that Breaking Bad will return for its fifth season on July 15th. Fans of the show know some of the bad news already. The fifth is also the last season of the gritty drama starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul.

It gets worse. The 16 episodes will be broken badly -- eight starting this summer, and then the concluding eight in the summer of 2013.

For a show about meth chemists, Breaking Bad is in no hurry to get things over with.

The channel issued this video of Cranston and Paul on the set during the making of season five. We might as well be DEA agents for all they really share with us.
