Lazebnik initiated a class-action lawsuit against the company after realizing that fans who purchased the 16-episode final season through iTunes only received the first eight episodes, which were broadcast in 2012. AMC made the call to name the two eight-episode narrative arcs “Season 5″ and “The Final Season," respectively, causing a bit of a hiccup over at iTunes HQ.
The second half of the season is wrapping up now, and Apple was similarly treating it like a separate season. Fans who had thought they purchased the whole season will get iTunes store credit, allowing them to pick up the final episodes. Those who had already actually purchased the final eight episodes will get store credit for whatever they'd like.
We apologize for any confusion the naming of “Season 5″ and “The Final Season” of “Breaking Bad” might have caused you. While the names of the seasons and episodes associated with them were not chosen by iTunes, we’d like to offer you “The Final Season” on us by providing you with the iTunes code below in the amount of $22.99. This credit can also be used for any other content on the iTunes Store. Thank you for your purchase.
