El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie: Everything We Know So Far

Like the Blue Sky drug-fueled addicts, we were left wanting more when Breaking Bad finished. After an epic finale to the show, no one was expecting to hear anything else from Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. But now we know more Breaking Bad is on the way and we are absolutely ecstatic to get more of our fix. Here’s everything we know so far on the upcoming Breakin Bad sequel.

Breaking Bad is an American-crime drama created by Vince Gilligan. Also directed by the creator, the series is regarded as one of the greatest shows in television history. Spoken in the same breath as The Wire, The Sopranos and Game of Thrones, it is a testament to just how incredible the show is. Winning numerous prestigious awards throughout its run, the show shot actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul to stardom. It’s a show that must be added to your watch list if you haven’t seen it already. With a reported film on the way, the internet has boarded the hype train.

Chemistry teacher Walter White is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Scared that he will leave his family with nothing but debt, he seeks to find a way to make a buck and fast. After discovering former chemistry pupil Jesse Pinkman cooks methamphetamine, he convinces him to help him create and distribute meth. Using an RV to create a meth lab on wheels, the product Walt makes is the purest anyone has ever seen.

What to expect: Breaking Bad Sequel

As we know, the story will follow Jesse in the aftermath of his escape from Jack’s Crew. After being imprisoned and tortured by the Neo-Nazis and not to mention Walter’s manipulation, Jesse’s psyche will be in a dangerous place. With Jack and his follower’s dead (thanks to Walter) Jesse is of least safe from them.

While Jesse has managed to escape, how much the cops know of Jesse’s involvement is up for debate. If Jack failed to destroy any of the evidence Todd stole then Jesse’s confession and all of Hank’s notes will be found. Jesse was Walter White’s previous second-hand man so there could be a nationwide manhunt for Pinkman.

Jesse is now a damaged and broken man, with nothing to lose except his freedom.

Speaking of damaged goods, with rumors of cast members who met their demise set to return, we could definitely expect to see some flashbacks.


Bryan Cranston’s Return: Breaking Bad Sequel

While some like Revenge of the Fans have ‘confirmed’ the actor’s involvement, nothing is official. Bryan Cranston has publicly expressed his interest in taking part in the sequel and had the following to say:

If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely. He’s a genius. It’s a great story, and there’s a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some sort of completion to some of these storylines that were left open. This idea, from what I was told, gets into at least a couple of the characters who were not completed as far as their journey. I can’t wait to see all those people again…even if I just come by to visit!

Very interesting indeed! We do believe that Cranston will return in some way but it will likely be in the form of a flashback. If Walter does return a great idea would for Walt to appear and haunt Jesse but have different iterations appear to either berate or to comfort Jesse.

Production Status: Breaking Bad Sequel

According to IMDb Pro filming began on the 21st of November 2018. Considering the length of time, the sequel should be deep into production by this point. There are a few different factors that may determine the length of filming and thus post-production. The following factors are:

  • TV Film roughly 2 hours in length
  • Two-Part TV Film Roughly 90 Minutes in length each episode
  • Miniseries consisting of roughly 3-6 Episodes

We will still go off the assumption we are receiving a film over anything else. It’s fun to speculate that we may, in fact, receive more than a  film.
