Breaking Bad Movie, Starring Aaron Paul, Coming to Netflix in October

Nearly six years ago, viewers of Breaking Bad watched the final episode of that series, in which the drug kingpin Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) emerged from hiding and sacrificed his life to rescue his one-time partner, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) from an Aryan Brotherhood gang. When White expired in a meth lab and the credits rolled, audiences believed it might be the last time they would see many of these characters. But it turns out the story of Breaking Bad isn’t quite finished. (NYT)

Breaking Bad’s feature-length movie is headed to Netflix this fall. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is set to debut Friday, Oct. 11, on the streamer and later air on AMC, with Aaron Paul returning as Jesse Pinkman. (THR)

Written and directed by Breaking Bad creator Vice Gilligan, El Camino is set in the wake of Jesse’s dramatic escape from captivity. (Deadline)

It’s unclear if Cranston, whose character died at the series’ end, will make an appearance in the film. (CNN)
