Breaking Bad fans, it's time to retool those DVRs. According to a recent tweet from writer-producer Peter Gould, the series' final two episodes will be "extra long," running past their standard hour length. (TV Guide has the episodes clocking in at 75 minutes.)

'Breaking Bad' Spinoff Will Be Prequel

Gould tweeted the info in response to a question about the length of the final episode. The news should be a pleasant surprise for Breaking Bad diehards, many of whom are still reeling from the emotional onslaught of Sunday's brutal episode, "Ozymandias."

The penultimate episode, "Granite State," was written and directed by Gould. It airs this Sunday at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.
