Walter White’s transformation from high school chemistry teacher to full-blown, ruthless drug lord continues on Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season, available on Blu-ray and DVD June 4 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The Fifth Season Blu-ray and DVD feature an eight-minute, uncensored bonus scene, “Chicks ‘N’ Guns,” written and produced exclusively for the home entertainment release. Starring Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk (TV’s How I Met Your Mother), and Charles Baker (Splinter), the scene tells the pivotal back story to Episode 8, “Gliding Over All.”
“The extra scene we created exclusively for the Blu-ray and DVD proves just how much the relationship between Jesse and Walt has drastically changed over the past five seasons of Breaking Bad,” said Vince Gilligan, show creator. “Chicks ‘N’ Guns is an original idea that presents fans with a pivotal missing moment during Episode 8. Writers Jenn Carroll and Gordon Smith, and Director Michelle MacLaren, did a fantastic job bringing it to life, and I think fans will love it.”
Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season comes as a three-disc Blu-ray and four-disc DVD set, including cast and crew commentary on every episode, deleted scenes, outtakes, audition and rehearsal footage, and all-new featurettes.
Breaking Bad also stars Anna Gunn (TV’s Deadwood), Dean Norris (TV’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Betsy Brandt (Magic Mike), RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, and Jonathan Banks (Identity Thief). It was created by writer/director/producer Vince Gilligan (TV’s The X-Files), who also served as executive producer with Academy Award® winner Mark Johnson (Rain Man, 1988’s Best Picture) and Michelle MacLaren (TV’s The X-Files). Co-executive producers of the series include Melissa Bernstein, Sam Catlin (TV’s Canterbury’s Law), George Mastras (TV’s The Dresden Files), Peter Gould (TV’s Too Big To Fail), and Thomas Schnauz (TV’s The X-Files).
