When it comes to ‘Breaking Bad’, fans expect nothing but the absolute best. Show creator Vince Gilligan appears to have some thoughts regarding the ‘Breaking Bad’ continuation into the ‘Better Call Saul’ finale season. Let’s find out the full story.
It seems unreal to think that (almost) everyone’s favourite show ‘Breaking Bad’ came out more than a decade ago. I personally feel that I finished the show only a few months ago. The show first released on January 20, 2008, and ran for a total of 5 seasons, 62 episodes, each an hour long. ‘Breaking Bad’ revolved around the lives of the members of the White family, set in the yellowish colour graded lands of Albuquerque, New Mexico. More specifically, it is about Walter White, an overqualified, high school chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin, and his partner-in-crime and former student Jesse Pinkman, who is also a meth-addicted drug dealer.

Despite all the rumours and stories going around about the show and its possible reboot, Vince Gilligan has been pretty clear as to where he stands. We hope to clear that up for you! Not only is the show one of the most recognized and critically acclaimed shows of our times, but also one with the most awards — a whopping 16 Primetime Emmy Awards and 2 Golden Globes.
As such, it is really confusing when fans learn that show creator Vince Gilligan had declined a 75-million-dollars deal to make three more episodes. That does sound like someone who is sure of their decision. But fans being fans, don’t give up easily.
What was ‘Breaking Bad’ and how did it end?
Walter White, a genius of chemistry and a recently diagnosed cancer patient, decides to leave his calm and peaceful life to manufacture and sell drugs alongside his partner and former student Jesse Pinkman. The duo starts out with cooking small batches of methamphetamine inside of an RV in desert areas.
They face several hurdles and are dealt with major moral conundrums in their endeavour to make their plans work. Both pay the price of their ordeals one way or another, the killing, plotting, lying, and deceiving tend to come right back to bite them. Although the show had started out with quite a few comical elements, it rapidly delves down in a much darker path.
The series ended with White sacrificing his life to free Jesse Pinkman from captivity, after evading the police and the FBI for several months. The final episode observed a record 10.2 million watchers and was described as bitter-sweet yet satisfactory.
Is Walter White still alive: Exploring the idea
Is it just a rumour? In the final episode, we did see that Walter White was wounded badly by a bullet in his torso but it is also very clear that we did not see him die. We only saw him fall and the police rushed in to catch him.
The theory that Walter is alive and still in hiding has gained momentum since the conclusion remains unresolved. Vince has not yet commented on this nuance of the final episode, but in an interview with a major Hollywood magazine, he made it clear that he is not working on any sequel of ‘Breaking Bad’ whatsoever.
What does Bryan Cranston think about returning as Walter White in ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6?
Fans of ‘Breaking Bad’ found some respite in ‘Better Call Saul’, which is a prequel series to ‘Breaking Bad’, but is centered around Saul Goodman’s days as a young lawyer. The show is written by the same writers who worked on ‘Breaking Bad’, and fans claim that the two series are qualitatively very much comparable.
Ahead of its season 6, it’s rumoured that Bryan Cranston (Walter White) will be making an appearance in the show, an event that will neatly link the two series. In an interview with “Collider”, Bryan Cranston said, “I would be in it if Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who are co-executive producers on it, wanted me to be in it. I would do it in a second. But it hasn’t happened yet, I can tell you, and we’ll see. I don’t know. There’s one more season to go and we’ll see what happens!”
