EXCLUSIVE: Breaking Bad may be getting The Walking Dead treatment for the upcoming conclusion of the series’ fifth and final season with a companion talk show. I’ve learned that AMC is planning a live after-show to accompany the final eight episodes of Vince Gilligan’s dark drama starring Bryan Cranston. In the mold of Talking Dead, I hear the Breaking Bad talk show would be titled Talking Bad and also be half-hour. Michael Davies’ Embassy Row, which produces Talking Dead, would also handle Talking Bad.

Talking Dead is AMC’s first live after-show where the latest episode of hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is recapped and developments are discussed with Walking Dead actors, producers as well as fans. Hosted by Chris Hardwick, Talking Dead airs Sundays, immediately following the encore presentation of The Walking Dead. It premiered in 2011, in conjunction with the second season of Walking Dead.
