If you’re salivating over when you’ll get to see the last eight episodes of Breaking Bad, we have good news: It’s just six months and ten days away.

Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse Pinkman on the show, tweeted Thursday that the show will return on July 14:

The premiere will come almost a year to the date after last year’s season premiere, which was on July 15. Breaking Bad broke its final season into two eight-episode mini-seasons.

SPOILERS: When we last left Walter White and Co., Walt (Bryan Cranston) had eliminated all competition and even begun to expand his meth operation internationally. But in the half-season’s closing moments, his DEA agent brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris) had a long-delayed epiphany about the true identity of the elusive Heisenberg. END SPOILERS 

If you’re looking to get caught up on Breaking Bad before the last episodes air, the first four seasons are on Netflix Instant, and more recent episodes can be downloaded one at a time from Amazon. And all seasons to date are available on DVD.

UPDATE: An AMC spokesman, speaking to Alan Sepinwall, has denied that a premiere date has been set.
