Breaking Bad fans will be getting a little more time to say goodbye.

The final two episodes of the AMC hit will run 75 minutes, with commercials, according to writer and co-executive producer Peter Gould.

"I checked & it's official. Last 2 #BreakingBad eps are 75 minutes each w/commercials. Set your DVRS accordingly. Better still, watch live!" Gould tweeted Wednesday.

TV Guide lists the episodes as 75 minutes, and AMC.com lists Low Winter Sun, which follows Bad, beginning at 10:15 p.m. rather than its usual 10 p.m. start. The most recent episodes of Bad have been a bit longer than usual, dipping into the 10 p.m. hour by a few minutes.

Bad aired its highest-rated episode ever Sunday, with its much talked-about "Ozymandias" drawing 6.4 million viewers. Its final two episodes air Sept. 22, opposite the Primetime Emmys, and Sept. 29.

Breaking Bad airs Sundays at 9 p.m. PT/ET on AMC.
