Vince Gilligan Confirms Walter White's Fate Ahead Of 'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie' Release
*THIS COULD BE A SPOILER ALERT TO ANYONE WHO IS SIX YEARS BEHIND ON THE BREAKING BAD HYPE ... *
Here's hoping everyone reading this next sentence has finished the Breaking Bad series already (that's your last warning)...
Walter White is dead. Yep, dead. Lights out. He was wounded when he went to rescue Jesse from Jack's compound - by his own remote control machine gun (messed up there, didn't he?). After some reminiscing in Jack's meth lab he lost consciousness and the final scene showed a police officer checking his pulse. We all knew it had happened.
But when the trailer for the forthcoming El Camino: A Breaking Bad was released, it showed the face of none other than Walter White. Naturally, fans couldn't help but cling onto a bit of hope that he had pulled through.
Still, one person who can clear all this up once and for all is the series' creator Vince Gilligan who did a few press conferences ahead of the release of El Camino on Friday.
Gilligan explained: "I'm gonna give you that one... Yes, Walter White is dead."
There it is, folks. So the movie has opted to tease us with clips of Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) but it looks like they will just be flashbacks.
When it came to discussing the longevity of El Camino - given Breaking Bad's success - Gilligan added: "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 will be picking up from where the series left off following the aforementioned dramatic conclusion, originally shown back in 2013, which left fans with unanswered questions about the fates of various characters - especially Walter White's erstwhile partner-in-meth, Jesse Pinkman.
The trailer for the film shows Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, sitting in his car listening to a radio broadcast of police investigating multiple people dead after a huge shootout.
9 male victims... Walter White is officially dead, can you all shut up saying he's alive now?

The broadcast says that nine bodies have been located. There were eight gang members in the final shootout and Walter White would make the ninth - more confirmation, for anyone still in need.
The film is released on Friday (11 October) - bring on the weekend, that's what we say.
