AMC’s Breaking Bad has been hailed as the greatest TV show that has ever aired. Its five-season run has been the most successful and critically acclaimed one with the finale earning a 9.9/10 IMDb rating. Though HBO’s Westworld isn’t as flawless as Breaking bad, it has earned its own share of respect.
Westworld is one of the finest sci-fi TV shows, following Person of Interest in the concept and tone. However, Aaron Paul’s fans might need to choose between one of the shows from now on.
Aaron Paul to leave Westworld for Breaking Bad?
The news of Aaron Paul leaving Westworld for a Breaking Bad reboot is worrying fans of the sci-fi fantasy show. But for the baby blue gang, this news has brought in Christmas in August.
Aaron Paul had joined Westworld in season 3 as Celeb. His character became key within the first few episodes. As in the finale of season 3, Dolores has handed over the fight of a better human race to Celeb.
In Breaking Bad, from the very first season, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) has been a key character. For the first three seasons, he grew as a supporting lead to Walter White (Bryan Cranston), and in the later season, he became the major conflict of the storyline.
Jesse Pinkman even received a solo conclusion movie El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, as a sequel.
Even though the character of Celeb is a fan-favorite, it’s relatively new and one of the several such characters in the show. Jesse Pinkman is now no lesser a legend than the show itself. Thus, we can expect Aaron Paul to choose Breaking Bad over Westworld any day.
Is Westworld coming with a season 4?
Westworld is HBO’s current flagship series, and they are not going to leave the story midway until a worthy replacement found. The pilot for the show premiered on the network on October 2, 2016. Seasons 2 and 3 followed with a gap of two years in between.
The third season of the show concluded on May 3, 2020. However, well before the show’s conclusion, in April 2020, HBO renewed Westworld for a season 4.
The production of season 4 has been halted due to the worldwide crisis brought by the pandemic. Though various other shows have resumed the filming and production, Jonathan Nolan, the creator, has given no update regarding the show’s latest season.
So, even though there are worries regarding Aaron Paul leaving Westworld for Breaking Bad, season 4 of the show is still on.
Is a Breaking Bad reboot confirmed?
Breaking Bad debuted on AMC in January of 2008 and ran for five seasons till September 2013. Though the show, with the creative genius of Vince Gilligan, concluded with a kind of satisfaction that no show ever managed to achieve, it still remained a phenomenon that no one wants to let go of.
Thus, the fans leave no chance of pushing the network towards reviving the show. However, currently, there’s no confirmation or official reports of any Breaking Bad reboot.
A Breaking Bad prequel and spin-off, Better Call Saul, crafted by Vince Gilligan, has been hailed as an equally great show. The spin-off is waiting for its sixth and final season next year. Until then, we doubt the creators will move on to anything else.
What will be your pick if you have to choose between Breaking Bad and Westworld?
