Stakes on Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad season 6
Breaking Bad is one of the series whose reboot for season 6 has become a subject of massive online campaigning by fans. Vince Gilligan launched his best work in 2008 and it ran for 5 seasons by pulling the curtains in 2013. Season 5 of Breaking Bad features the death of the protagonist Walter White to mark the end of the series.
The ending of the great series after season 5 did not go well with the fans. Even though the lead character died, fans are demanding the reboot of the series for season 6. They know that Vince, for the story writing talent he possesses, can craft a plot to resurrect Walter White.
Vince Gilligan tries to assuage the die-hard fans demanding Breaking Bad reboot with sequel movie El Camino and prequel series Better Call Saul. Both of them were exceptional pieces of work. Moreover, Better Call Saul is considered to be the best spin-off of all times by the critics. But the two offshoots of Breaking Down haven’t managed to quench the thirst for season 6.
How Vince Gilligan ended up choosing Albuquerque, New Mexico for Breaking Bad?
Gilligan had originally set the series in South California’s Inland Empire, the area east of Los Angeles. The production was moved to Albuquerque to get tax incentives. Stewart Lyons was the line producer on the show once mentioned that the show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, had originally planned to shoot Breaking Bad in California.
“The shift happened because of the tax incentives,” he said.
“What they didn’t know at the time, and what Vince really embraced, was the whole sense of being in New Mexico and specifically in Albuquerque and that became, to some extent, a character on the show. The light, the desert vistas, the very basic American milieu that they found themselves in got embraced. And it had not been overly shot, and certainly had not been shot from the kind of perspective that “Breaking Bad” brought to it – not always flattering but always unique.”
Has Vince Gilligan found the new location for Breaking Bad season 6?
Well, what could be the reason behind Vince losing interest in Albuquerque? It is reported from the inside sources that Vince is planning to reboot the series Breaking Bad bowing down to the fans. But this time on season 6, the location will be quite far from New Mexico.
Vince Gilligan and his team know that the state of California will offer huge tax incentives if they plan to shoot after COVID 19 problems dies down. Vince is going to set the Breaking Bad season 6 story at his original choice, Los Angeles. It is highly likely that the dead Walter White will wake up mysteriously in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles isn’t an exotic location and might not beat the appeal created by 5 seasons of Breaking Bad set in New Mexico. Some even claim that Guatemala Bay might feature in Breaking Bad. For now, the show makers haven’t made an official announcement for the revival of Breaking Bad for season 6. Till then we have no option but to speculate the new location for the Breaking Bad reboot season.
