El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Drops On Netflix At 8am Today

You Breaking Bad fans have been a patient bunch, that's for sure - but finally, more than six years after the AMC series wrapped, your day has arrived. That's right, it's El Camino time!

The Breaking Bad spin-off movie will be added to Netflix at 8am, giving you what might just be the greatest Friday feeling of all time. I just sure hope you've booked this morning off work... Or you're willing to avoid the internet at all costs until you return home this evening.

El Camino's arrival is arguably one of TV and film's biggest events of the year, having been announced earlier this year, much to fans' sheer delight.

The film will be picking up from where the series left us, set in the immediate aftermath of the show's finale as Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) as he tries to 'outrun his past'.

Last time we saw Jesse, he was screeching away in Jack's car, an El Camino, and judging from the trailer it seems like his escape hasn't been the stress-free departure from his old life he continually craved.

This time round it's all about Jesse - as it seems his erstwhile partner-in-meth, Walter White, will not be making appearance.

White was killed off at the end of Breaking Bad, but that didn't stop fans speculating optimistically about his fate.


However, in the run-up to El Camino's release, creator Vince Gilligan shut down the rumours once and for all.

Speaking at a press conference, he explained: "I'm gonna give you that one... Yes, Walter White is dead."

Soz, guys.


As for life after El Camino, Gilligan seemed doubtful that the franchise would continue, despite its ongoing success.

Gilligan said: "I think it's the last one of these.

"But then, probably five years ago or whatever the last time I was on this show, I probably said the last Breaking Bad episode was the last one of these too, so I'm just a pathological liar."


El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will be released on Netflix at 8am today (11 October).
