It's been six years since the last episode of Breaking Bad aired and now the world is preparing for Netflix's sequel movie that will premiere in October. Because of how the series ended, people have a lot of questions as to how this movie will actually play out. We do know after watching the last five seasons, that it won't follow Walter White and his drug making, but Netflix just also released the trailer for the movie which is leaving fans with even more questions. In the meantime, maybe there are some hints in the information we do have that'll hold our curiosity off until it's Netflix release. Here's what we know so far about the Breaking Bad sequel.
There's Been A Title Change
Although it is a Breaking Bad sequel, the movie isn't just called, Breaking Bad: The Movie. It's titled El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. They had to add some uniqueness to the name!
What Is The Movie Even About?
Everyone has stayed pretty tight-lipped about what the movie will be about but as usual, Netflix came in clutch and released a full synopsis for the film:
"The Netflix Television Event EL CAMINO: A BREAKING BAD MOVIE reunites fans with Jesse Pinkman (Emmy-winner Aaron Paul). In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future. This gripping thriller is written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad. The movie is produced by Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth, Diane Mercer and Aaron Paul, in association with Sony Pictures Television."
There Will Be Returning Characters
Only two original characters have officially been confirmed to return for the movie. Charles Baker is returning to play the role of Skinny Pete, who was Jesse Pinkman's friend and drug-runner. In the trailer, he is being questioned about a missing man, which we infer is Jesse. Aaron Paul is also set to return to his role as Jesse!
While nothing has been confirmed or even hinted at, fans are holding out hope that, despite his characters ending in the season 5 finale, Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as Walter White. At least in some capacity.
When Cranston has been asked about reprising his role in the past he's been very vague, saying he would "love" to be a part of El Camino.
The Premiere Date Is Sooner Than You Think
We only got a release date last month and it's way sooner than anyone expected. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will start streaming on Netflix on October 11!
