'Breaking Bad: The Final Season' and 'Breaking Bad: The Complete Series' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Sep 9, 2013 at 03:00 PM PDT by

The final 8 episodes and a collector's box set will be cooked up on Blu-ray in November.

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony has set 'Breaking Bad: The Final Season' for Blu-ray on November 26th.

'Breaking Bad: The Complete Series' will also be available on the same date.

'Breaking Bad' follows protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Anna Gunn) and teenage son (RJ Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a slim chance to survive. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to secure his family's financial security, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world. The series explores how this fatal diagnosis transforms Walt from mild family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.

Features for the final season include: "Blood Money" Table Read – A rare look at the only final season Breaking Bad table read; Cast and Crew Commentaries on Every Episode; 4 Featurettes (The Main Event, The Final Showdown, Life of a Show Runner, and Behind-the-Scenes of the Alternate Ending); Alternate Ending – A 3-minute alternate version of how Breaking Bad could have ended; Deleted & Extended Scenes; Gag Reel; Walt's Confession; The Layers of a Sound Mix; Over 15 Episodes of Inside Breaking Bad; and Uncensored and Extended Episodes.

Fitting perfectly inside a replica black barrel (just like the ones Walt uses to hide his money), the collector’s edition includes all previously released bonus materials (including retailer exclusive supplements) and more than two hours of never-before-seen footage from a ground-breaking series documentary. The all-new documentary chronicles the making of the final season, from filming the first table read to the very last day on set and everything in between, including Bryan Cranston inviting the camera in to his Albuquerque living room for the first reading of the final script with Aaron Paul. This set will also include a Los Pollos Hermanos apron, a collectible booklet, and a commemorative Breaking Bad challenge coin.

Suggested list price for the Final Season is $65.99 and the Complete Series is $299.98.
