Aaron Paul on 'Breaking Bad's' July return: 'wear your diapers'

'Breaking Bad'
The fifth season of AMC's tense-a-thon "Breaking Bad" will begin airing in July, and according to costar Aaron Paul, who plays troubled meth dealer Jesse Pinkman, it promises to waste no time.

"Just read the first episode of breaking bad S5 and words can not express," Paul wrote on his Twitter page on Saturday. "... is about to get crazy. Get ready my friends. Love you Vince!"

Vince is series creator Vince Gilligan.

He continued, "The teaser alone in episode 1 S5 will have you screaming more then when someone got blown up last season."

That is a reference to the final episode of Season 4, which featured meth king Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) getting blown up, then walking away with half his face missing. As jaw-dropping moments go, it was one of the series' biggest.

But Paul didn't stop there, offering fans one final warning: "Breaking Bad will return to your Television sometime in July. Make sure u wear your diapers because I'm pretty sure u will ... yourself."

This is supposed to be the series' final season. But with 16 episodes, it still may be broken in half to form two mini seasons. So it's unclear exactly when series star Bryan Cranston will finally complete his transformation from mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher to Scarface -- he doesn't have far to go.
