They’re back, bitch! Six years after the TV series Breaking Bad ended, a sequel film is now reportedly coming to Netflix. On February 13, Variety reported that the movie will stream on Netflix first before airing on AMC, the television channel that originally hosted the drama series. The plot has not been revealed yet, but Aaron Paul, 39, who played Jesse Pinkman, will star in the project, and creator Vince Gilligan is writing and directing it, according to previous reports.
So, what about Bryan Cranston, 62, who played the infamous Walter White character? Unfortunately, it has not been confirmed if the Malcolm in the Middle alum will reprise his role or not. However, Bryan previously established the film was happening but didn’t explain if he was involved or not.
When the news dropped, fans immediately reacted on Twitter. One wrote, “Movie news! A #BreakingBad sequel #movie is in the works … starring #AaronPaul. CAN’T WAIT to see what #JessePinkman is up to!” while another echoed, “I’m so excited for the Breaking Bad movie, you have no idea.”
However, some viewers were already satisfied with the original ending and don’t think a movie is necessary. “Breaking Bad ended so perfectly, there isn’t a need for a sequel movie,” one wrote. Another chimed in, explaining, “Can we please just leave Breaking Bad as is? There’s no f—king point of a movie. There were four seasons of a spinoff that was nothing like Breaking Bad and y’all STILL want a movie? Rewatch the show.”
The Emmy winning series aired from 2008 to 2013 and explored the friendship of a student and teacher who worked together to sell drugs.
In June 2018, the cast reunited for an Entertainment Weekly cover story and discussed how grateful they were for the opportunity to work on this show. “I love these people,” Aaron told the outlet. “I feel blessed to have shared this incredible experience that is Breaking Bad with each and every one of these people.”
At the time, Bryan confessed he didn’t want the series to end. “I want to hold on to those good memories of that gathering, both then and during our seven years together. So, it’s a bit melancholy, actually. Bittersweet.”
Well, now he may be able to have one more adventure with the cast and crew. We’ll be anxiously awaiting for the premiere!
