With El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie now out on Netflix, Aaron Paul shoots down hopes for a sequel series continuation of Breaking Bad.

We finally got to see some of our favorite characters from Breaking Bad for the first time in six years since the show originally went off-air in the Netflix Original movie El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, which was released for streaming globally yesterday. And while some fans might be holding on to the hope that they will probably get to see these characters in some sort of sequel series someday soon. Aaron Paul has shot down the hope for anything of that sort actually happening.
While speaking to The Guardian in an interview, Paul said that he thought that they finished that story six years ago. And while people were passionate about finding answers regarding what happened to Jesse, he thought that this was never actually going to get penned to screen until Vince Gilligan, the writer, and director of El Camino reached out to him and said that he had a story to tell.
In the Breaking Bad series finale titled “Felina”, we see Jesse racing away in an El Camino from the compound where he was held and caged by Neo-Nazis after parting ways with his dying partner in crime Walter White (Bryan Cranston).

Paul said that he loved that the show ended on a very vague note and that there was a sense of mystery to it. And while his character might have gone to Alaska as he dreamed about, he might have also been on the run and probably spent his life hiding.

And while Paul didn’t feel like he needed to revisit the character, he just couldn’t resist an idea coming from the mastermind Vince Gilligan himself who just wanted to answer that one question he left unanswered in the show, that one ich that he had to scratch.

Paul also went on to thank Netflix as the show’s addition to the streaming giant changed his life forever.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is streaming now on Netflix and it finally answers the questions related to Jesse Pinkman’s whereabouts.
