AMC is giving "Breaking Bad" fans one last chance to binge before the series finale.

The cable network is planning to run a "Breaking Bad" marathon leading up to the finale, which is scheduled for Sunday, September 29th at 9 p.m. ET.

The marathon, which will include every episode from the series, will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. and run until Friday night, a stretch that will encompass Seasons 1-4. The marathon will take a breaking after that, resuming again on Saturday night at 11 p.m. with all of Season 5.

Those aren't the only special plans AMC is making for "Breaking Bad" finale night. The network is also extending the "Breaking Bad" talk show "Talking Bad" by a half hour and moving it to directly after the finale. Guests on finale night will include "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, Aaron Paul, Jesse Plemmons, RJ Mitte, former stars Jonathan Banks and Giancarlo Esposito and Jimmy Kimmel.

“We want to appropriately honor this remarkable series by delivering the ultimate, most immersive experience for ‘Breaking Bad’ fans,” Charlie Collier, AMC president, said in a statement. “From a five-day marathon featuring every episode across all five seasons, to an unforgettable finale rolling immediately into an expanded one-hour Talking Bad after-show, we are so proud of Vince Gilligan and everyone associated with this show, and believe this is the perfect way to send ‘Breaking Bad’ from our air into television history.”

"Breaking Bad" executive producer Peter Gould also tweeted Thursday that the final two episodes of "Breaking Bad" will both be 75 minutes long, 15 minutes longer than usual.

Catch the penultimate episode of "Breaking Bad" this Sunday, September 22 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
