You may have heard there’s a Breaking Bad movie coming to Netflix. We’ve certainly been talking about it a lot, from the initial news to the cryptic tweets to the recent trailer and release date. What, we’re excited!
The movie is centered around Jesse Pinkman and takes place after the series ended as he, presumably, tries to piece some kind of life together after escaping the neo-Nazi compound.
Today Netflix released a recap video that allows us all to “catch up Jesse’s journey” (as written in the YouTube description field):
Aaron Paul recently posted this image to Instagram, which leads us to believe there will be plenty more flashbacks (unless Jesse learned zero lessons from his ordeal and set-up shop elsewhere?!)

Of course, ever since it was announced, speculation has been running rampant about whether or not Walter White, aka Heisenberg, aka the Man Who Broke Bad, was actually going to be in it. Given that the series ended with his death, it wouldn’t seem possible, but then again, as essential as Aaron Paul’s Pinkman is to the show, what’s Breaking Bad without Bryan Cranston?
Well, we don’t have to worry, because some photos have leaked from the ultra-secretive shoot (weeks after it wrapped) and guess what? Cranston is back! We think.
The Instagram account All About Saul apparently snagged some photos from the set, including those of places that figured prominently in the show’s past, such as the duplex where Jesse lived with his girlfriend Jane, and the iconic RV, which, like Walter White himself, didn’t survive the series.
The images suggest that we could be in for some flashbacks, and if so, it’s a decent bet that Bryan Cranston will be in some of them. Which only makes an already highly anticipated movie even more exciting.
I just hope we get to see Walt Jr. have some breakfast again.
