Breaking Bad fans will have an addicting way to celebrate the show's final episode: a good old-fashioned binge watch. AMC will be airing a marathon of all 62 episodes ahead of its Sept. 29 series finale.

"Breaking Bad Marathon: Countdown to Finale," begins Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT with the entirety of seasons one through four airing until late Friday night.

The marathon picks back up Saturday, Sept. 28 at 11 p.m. ET/PT and will run until the series finale Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Talking Bad -- the Breaking Bad-centered live talk show -- will air a special hour-long episode following the series finale. Host Chris Hardwick will welcome guests Vince Gilligan, Aaron Paul, Jesse Plemons, RJ Mitte, Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks and Jimmy Kimmel. Low Winter Sun, which usually follows Breaking Bad, will shift to 11:15 p.m. on Sept. 29.

It's appropriate the show will be going out with a marathon, as Gilligan has often credited Netflix and binge-watching with saving his show. A number of new fans were introduced to the show that way during its run.

The show's most recent episode, "Ozymandias," set a ratings record for the series with 6.4 million viewers. The final two episodes will be a little longer than usual, running 75 minutes long with commercials.
