Stock up on brown paper bags now, people, because you're going to need them to breathe into come next Sunday.

Breaking Bad's series finale is upon us and star Bryan Cranston teased that fans should prepare themselves now for a "holocaust" when he chatted with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the 2013 Emmys. Gulp!

"The ending is perfect," Cranston assured of the AMC hit's series finale. "Unapologetic. It is perfect Breaking Bad."

And while Cranston called it "bittersweet," the Emmy nominee admitted it was the right time for Breaking Bad and Walter's journey to come to an end. "You know that you're proud that you've come to a close, almost like an athlete that wants to finish on top as opposed to letting it go on for a year or two more," Cranston said. "Vince Gilligan, our writer, finished at just the right time."

AMC recently announced plans for a Breaking Bad prequel featuring Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), aka Walt's seedy lawyer, called Better Call Saul, but we had to know if there's potential for a spinoff that is set post-finale.

Cranston's ominous answer? "We have to see if anyone survives the holocaust." Double gulp!

Breaking Bad's series finale airs Sunday, Sept. 29 on AMC.
