February 17, 2009 3:13 PM

“Breaking Bad” is getting some additional online content in advance of its second season, which starts March 8, AMC and Sony Pictures Television announced today.

Five webisodes premiere today at AMC’s Web site as well as Crackle.com, featuring “Bad” cast members Bryan Cranston, Dean Norris, Anna Gunn and Aaron Paul in three- to five-minute shorts.

Some include Walt (Mr. Cranston) confronting Hank’s (Mr. Norris) pre-wedding jitters and Jesse’s (Mr. Paul) introduction of his band, Twaughthammer.

Also launching today is an interactive promotion at waltswarning.com, in which viewers get a first-person perspective from Walt’s Winnebago.

And starting March 6, viewers can get a recap of “Bad’s” first season at Sony’s Minisode Network, which condenses shows into five-minute bite-sized videos.
