Later, Bryan Cranston himself admitted of deliberately teasing the fans about Walter White’s death in Breaking Bad.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, he said:
“I got [asked about Walt’s death] so much that I would even tease them. My answer was always, ‘Yeah, he’s dead he’s dead he’s dead,’
“I would get more questions about it, and then I thought, ‘Well, this doesn’t seem to be going away.’ So [then if] they would say, ‘Well, Walt died,’ I would go, ‘Did he?’ [laughs] and just leave it there. And they’d freak out: ‘Oh my god, what’s he saying?!?’”
Cranston’s technique did work, and fans went crazy over his statement. But the truth is, Walter is not coming back from the dead. However, we might expect to see him in Flashbacks and memories of other characters in further possible spin-offs or sequels.
