A sequel to the Emmy award-winning show Breaking Bad is on the way. Earlier this week, Deadline reported that the sequel feature film will debut with its longtime streaming partner, Netflix. Eventually the feature will find its way to AMC, where the original show aired. Vince Gilligan, the show’s creator and writer, will lead the feature film.

Much of the details surrounding the upcoming film are under wraps. However, the original show concludes with Aaron Paul’s character, Jesse Pinkman, escaping from his capture by neo-Nazis. A report states that the sequel will deal with the events that take place after the final episode. The season finale, which aired in 2013, also shows the apparent death of the show’s main lead, Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston. It is not confirmed whether Cranston will reprise his role for the upcoming sequel.

The show’s revival coming to Netflix serves as no surprise. Netflix has helped ‘Breaking Bad’ become the cultural phenomena it has become since its finale in 2013. The streaming service has provided every episode on their catalog since 2014. Gilligan has also credited Netflix for part of the shows massive success while accepting the award for best drama at the 2013 Emmys.

Breaking Bad premiered on AMC in 2008 and ran for five seasons. The show centers around Walter White (Cranston), a chemistry teacher diagnosed with terminal lung cancer who finds himself making and distributing methamphetamine in order to provide for his family after he is gone. He teams up with former student, Jesse Pinkman (Paul), to lead one of the biggest drug empires in New Mexico.

Breaking Bad is currently available to Netflix subscribers. With the feature coming to the streaming platform in the near future, maybe now is a good time to join the streaming revolution.
