The ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie Is Hitting Netflix In October And It’s About Jesse

Breaking Bad

Gather round, Breaking Bad fans, because it has been confirmed today that the long-awaited movie has a release date, and will be hitting streaming service Netflix on October 11.

The story is set to focus on Aaron Paul‘s character Jesse Pinkman, who was last seen fleeing an Aryan Brotherhood compound in the series finale.

Per the very brief official plot synopsis:

“Fugitive Jesse Pinkman runs from his captors, the law, and his past.”

The official title has been confirmed as El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.

Creator Vince Gilligan served as writer and director. It is unknown at this stage whether Bryan Cranston‘s Walter White, who died in the finale, will return in flashbacks.

The film was shot in and around Albuquerque, New Mexico last year, under the name Greenbriar, and the production was kept well under wraps.

Bob Odenkirk, who would go on to star in Better Call Saul, said at the time:

“I’ve heard so many different things about it, but I am excited about the Breaking Bad movie. I can’t wait to see it … I don’t know what people know and don’t know. I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They’ve done an amazing job of keeping it a secret.”
