Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad's creator, has confirmed they've made a behind-the-scenes documentary with footage from the show's final season.

The two-hour long programmes is expected to be included as a DVD and Blu-Ray extra and promises to give viewers a very special look at the final episodes, with appearances from Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and the rest of the cast.

Gilligan revealed the news during a press conference this weekend and also teased the show's finale.

He said: "I am very cautious in my estimation, in general, of how people will respond to things. I hope I am not wildly wrong in my estimate that most people are going to dig the ending."

Cranston joked: "Walt has a large reservoir of good to be shared with everyone else, and he spreads his joy throughout the last eight episodes.

"I think everyone will be satisfied with the ending where we hug it out."

Breaking Bad returns to AMC on August 11 in the US and will be available exclusively to Netflix customers in Ireland the following day.
