If the rumors are true, Breaking Bad is coming back with a sequel on Netflix and AMC.
A Breaking Bad movie starring Aaron Paul as Jesse will be coming to Netflix and AMC, according to unnamed sources cited by The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday. This latest rumor follows up on the rumor previously reported by the same outlet that there’s a two-hour Breaking Bad movie in the works with the original show’s creator Vince Gilligan at the helm.
Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman in the movie, THR reports. The movie will be a sequel to the events of Breaking Bad, which means it’s unlikely we’d see Walter White again, but perhaps some other familiar faces could pop up.
Last we saw Pinkman, he was escaping from a gang of Nazis headed up by Uncle Jack, who were holding him hostage as their own personal meth cook.
Back in November, Bryan Cranston (who played Walter White on the show) confirmed that a movie is in fact in the works on the Dan Patrick Show.
Interestingly, the sources said that Netflix would have first-run rights for the movie, but that it would still air on AMC later.
Gilligan, who sources say is writing and directing the Breaking Bad movie, will be working alongside Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul executive producers Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson.
It’s not a big surprise that there would be a direct follow-up to Breaking Bad, which won numerous awards and is heralded by many as one of the greatest shows in modern television, if not of all time. The prequel-ish show Better Call Saul has also received a ton of critical acclaim.
Neither Netflix nor AMC immediately responded to Mashable’s request for comment.
