AMC has announced the premiere date for the fifth and final season of Breaking Bad. The Emmy-winning show will premiere July 15th, with eight episodes airing this summer and eight more airing in the summer of 2013.

Though the premiere date was previously unannounced, the unusual airing schedule was already teased by AMC last month. "We're splitting it," said star Bryan Cranston at the time. "We're going to shoot the first eight, then take a four-month production break, then the rest will air next year."
