'Breaking Bad' Movie Sequel Is Reportedly Coming to AMC and Netflix

'Breaking Bad' Movie Sequel Is Reportedly Coming to AMC and Netflix

The streaming giant has landed the initial broadcast rights to a feature-film sequel to the hit series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A little is known about the Breaking Bad movie.

The upcoming film, which was first reported late a year ago, is a sequel written by show creator Vince Gilligan, centered around Paul's character, Jesse Pinkman, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "But the most likely thing, as negative as this sounds, is that they're going to find this kid's fingerprints all over this lab and they're going to find him within a day or a week or a month". Netflix is often credited for the show's rise in popularity and ratings in later seasons. After Netflix added the show, however, ratings for Breaking Bad began to increase.

Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad movie continues to be shrouded in secrecy, but I hear it will air on Netflix and AMC, which also carries Gilligan's Emmy-winning series. Not only are we standing up here [with the Emmy], I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two. Last year, the streamer surprise-premiered The Cloverfield Paradox after the Super Bowl, having acquired the film from Paramount Pictures, which had originally developed it for a theatrical release. Interestingly, they also report that the film will go to Netflix before it shows up on cable.

We found out about Vince Gilligan's forthcoming Breaking Bad "sequel" movie back in November, and in the time since there's been much speculation as to what, exactly, that sequel would entail.

Deadline first reported the distribution deal.

Fans are still left in the dark as to whether Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as Walter White, or if any of the supporting cast members will make an appearance. "Cranston previously confirmed the film was happening but would not say whether or not he would be involved".
