Jesse Pinkman is getting ready to return to our screens, and now, as fans scramble to start rewatching Breaking Bad from the beginning, Netflix is doing the job for them, with a new teaser trailer recapping his journey through AMC’s series.
Soundtracked to Enchanted by Chloe X Halle, the music video is a heart-wrenching reminder of everything he has gone through since crossing paths with Walter White, his former chemistry teacher who turned drug kingpin. El Camino will pick up after Jesse’s escape from a crystal meth gang at the end of the show’s final season. Now having to come to terms with his past to forge some kind of future, he’s also got to deal with the matter of the police on his trail.
You can see a glimpse of that pursuit in the teaser trailer below, which sees Skinny Pete (Charles Baker, also reprising his role) being grilled by the cops, but for now, wallow in the misery and torment of Jesse’s struggles, and start counting down to El Camino’s release: the film will premiere on Netflix on 11th October.

El Camino: Breaking Bad movie gets October release date and trailer
25th August 2019
It’s official: the Breaking Bad movie is coming to Netflix this October, with the streaming giant unveiling a release date and teaser trailer for the show’s feature-length return.
The project, which has been the subject of much speculation for months, will see Aaron Paul reprise his role as Jesse Pinkman and pick up after his escape from a crystal meth gang. Now having to come to terms with his past to forge some kind of future, he’s also got to deal with the matter of the police on his trail. The first teaser trailer for the movie sees Skinny Pete (Charles Baker, also reprising his role) being grilled by the cops trying to track down Pinkman’s whereabouts.
The teaser arrives hot on the heels of Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk (aka. Saul Goodman in the Breaking Badverse) confirming that filming had finished on the movie. It doesn’t show us Jesse himself, although the poster that’s also been released gives us a glimpse of his titular getaway car. The question on everyone’s lips, though, is whether Bryan Cranston will appear at all in the movie, reprising his role as Walter White, the mild-mannered chemistry teacher who transformed over several seasons into drug dealer Heisenberg. What we do know is the film is written and directed by Breaking Bad’s original creator, Vince Gilligan, and that it will premiere on Netflix worldwide on 11th October 2019.

Breaking Bad movie reportedly headed to Netflix
14th February 2019
The mooted Breaking Bad sequel is reportedly heading to Netflix as well as AMC, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting.
The project, which is understood to be a feature-length movie, has been the subject of much speculation for some time, after talk of it emerged last year. Bryan Cranston confirmed then that a movie of some form was in the pipeline, while the Albuquerque press reported that a project (codename “Greenbriar”) was filming in November, following “the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom”. That led to speculation that Aaron Paul would be returning to reprise his role of Jesse Pinkman, with the movie picking up events after the final episode of the long-running drama.
Now, THR reports that sources say Paul, who won three Supporting Actor Emmys for his role, will star as Pinkman, with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan writing the script and also directing. While the original series aired on AMC before being released on Netflix in the UK (and, later, in the USA), THR’s sources say that Netflix will have the first-run rights to the movie, which will then air on AMC.
Nobody has officially announced or commented on these reports, but both Deadline and THR are now reporting sources saying the same things.
Breaking Bad movie in the works
8th November 2018
A Breaking Bad movie is reportedly on the way.
Years after AMC’s crime thriller ended, providing a moving, dramatic climax to the journey of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) from mild-mannered family man to drug kingpin Heisenberg, THR reports that creator Vince Gilligan is working on a feature film that will exist in the same universe.
The world of Gilligan’s Albuquerque has been explored in depth in recent years, with Gilligan and Peter Gould releasing spin-off prequel Better Call Saul to much acclaim – including from ourselves (read our reviews of each episode here). The film, which would hail from the show’s producers and Sony Pictures, is reportedly written and exec-produced by Gilligan, and he will possibly direct it too. Breaking Bad EPs Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are also thought to be attached.
Judging by confirmations from The New Mexico Film Office, the film is currently thought to be called Greenbrier and is expected to begin production this month. The movie would mark Gilligan’s first project under a three-year overall deal signed with Sony TV this year.
Cranston has confirmed this week that a movie of some form is in the works, although did not know if White would appear in it. So far, the only details about its plot suggest that it will follow “the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom”, something that places it firmly in the possible wheelhouse of Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), continuing his story after the events of the long-running show.
What we do know for sure is that AMC is certainly looking to expand its remit outside of TV series, with multiple The Walking Dead movies given the green light. A Breaking Bad film would fit right in with those plans to broaden its reach.
