El Camino Star Aaron Paul Interested In Playing Jesse Pinkman Again

WARNING: This article contains spoilers for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

After what felt like an absolute age, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie finally dropped on Netflix on Friday (11 October), but Aaron Paul is already talking about another potential outing for his character, Jesse Pinkman.

It's so far been suggested that the new movie is just a one-off for everyone's fave Breaking Bad character (don't @ me, this is a fact) - but could it actually be just the start of a new story arc?

Admittedly these are murky waters. In a recent interview with People, Aaron answered queries about the possibility of Jesse popping up again by saying: "I have no idea, man.

"I thought I said goodbye to this guy so many years ago. Reading the script was such a beautiful homecoming.

"It's up to Vince [Gilligan, Breaking Bad creator]. You know, Vince and I definitely plan on working together many times in the future and if it's Breaking Bad-related then great, if not then so be it.

"If he wants to dive deep into this again then I'm all for it."

Speaking of where his character ends up in the movie, Aaron added: "This was the exact ending I envisioned. Years ago, when the show was wrapping up, I was always hoping that Jesse would find some sort of inner peace and find a peaceful setting to call home and escape the chaos."

He added: "I think - I hope - that he has found that."

The suspense while waiting for the film was heavy, and with so much time comes a lot of expectation, so the pressure was on for it to be a hit.

Well, the flick landed on Netflix earlier this week and it looks like it's overall been a success, with those who have watched it falling over themselves with praise.

Netflix decided to test the waters on the day it was released to see what fans thought, asking for their spoiler-free reactions.

Replying to the streaming site's post, one viewer said: "One word: MASTERPIECE."

These sentiments were echoed by another fan, who put: "#ElCamino proves that Vince Gilligan is a god not only at making TV shows but also at making movies. Fans finally learn what they'd been dying to know for years through a suspenseful, thoughtful and epic 2 hour story. What a show... there'll be nothing like it ever again."

While yet another user added: "The heartwarming closure to character that we never thought we'd get. Absolutely brilliant and captivating thought it all. Thank you Vince Gilligan. Thank you Jesse Pinkman. Thank you Aaron Paul most of all. Forever grateful for this story."

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is available to stream on Netflix now.
