Aaron Paul has shot down the chances of a Breaking Bad sequel series on the back of the cult show’s spin-off movie that premieres on Netflix this month.
The actor, who reprises his role as Jesse Pinkman in the new film El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, said the Netflix film doesn’t ratify another Breaking Bad series.
“People were just so passionate, and wanted answers,” he told The Guardian as he recalled fans’ responses to the conclusion of Breaking Bad in 2013.
“[They were] asking when the next series of Breaking Bad was gonna be — you can put that dream away — wanting to know what happens to Jesse. And what happened to Jesse,” he added.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie centres around Jesse’s escape from the white supremacists’ compound where he was forced to produce high-quality meth. In the new spin-off movie, he must “come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future”.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is released via Netflix this Friday (October 11).
