Breaking Bad: Sequel movie may premiere on Netflix


After previously acknowledging Netflix helped keep Braking Bad from being canceled, Vince Gilligan may premiere his sequel movie on the streaming service.

AMC would also air the sequel movie, per a report from Deadline. But, per the same report, it looks like the next chapter in Breaking Bad will premiere on Netflix. Gilligan stated that he thought Netflix kept the show from being canceled during his 2013 acceptance speech for Breaking Bad winning best drama.

This could be a way to honor that relationship. You gave us added viewers. We’ll repay the favor. Don’t get me wrong. There is zero evidence that shows Netflix is floundering in any way. But, since viewership for the series is so strong on the streaming service, Gilligan might as well give the people what they want.

The movie seems to center around Jessie Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after he drove through the fence of the meth lab prison in the series finale of Breaking Bad, “Felina.” Gilligan has mentioned that he wanted Jesse to get away and make it to Alaska. But, there was also a good chance that he would be apprehended by the police well before he made it up north.

If this remains a movie, which is not clear, you would expect a decent amount of it to cover how Jesse gets clear of Albuquerque and on with his life. I’d love to see Badger (Matt L. Jones) and Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) encounter and help Jesse. They could fill in some of the details from the finale for him.

At some point, Jesse would also need to reckon with Brock (Ian Posada). I don’t know if he could just leave without making sure he was ok. In thinking about it, Jesse might make sure Brock is ok and then just leave. There could be real concern that he could do more damage by contacting Brock. After all, Brock’s mom Andrea (Emily Clara Rios) was murdered as retaliation for trying to escape from Todd (Jesse Plemons).

There is a real arc that could lead to a limited series. I don’t know if Gilligan wants a multi-season run to flash forward with Jesse the way they’ve flashed back with Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Better Call Saul. But seeing how Jesse makes peace with his past, gets away from the ABQ, and sets up his future could be a nice eight episodes or so.

Are you looking forward to the Breaking Bad movie? do you think it is unnecessary? Let’s discuss in the comments!
