RJ Mitte Wants To Become Drug Kingpin In Breaking Bad Spin-Off

RJ Mitte Wants To Become Drug Kingpin In Breaking Bad Spin-Off

It's been more than six year since fans said goodbye to Walter White in the hit series Breaking Bad, but now it seems the drug lord's on-screen son wants to return to carry on his father's legacy.

Actor RJ Mitte, who played Walter Jr., has revealed that he has already spoken to Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan about the possibility of a new spin-off, with him taking the lead.

Speaking to The Sun, the 27-year-old - who, like his character, has cerebal palsy - said he thinks the issues Walter Jr had to go through in the show would make for a gripping series.

He said: "He is his father's son in a way of his actions and his moralities of what he's going to do would be right for his family.

"But I would like to see Walt Jr. being a gangster."

While this may excite some fans of the iconic series, it doesn't look like anything will be happening with Bryan Cranston and co. in the immediate future.

What we do know, however, is that another Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul, will definitely be returning for a sixth and final series.

The show follows Bob Odenkirk's character Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill as he goes from con artist to dodgy lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Producers say they have squeezed just about everything they could from the show, and the final season will wrap up everything in a nice little bow.

Executive producer Peter Gould told audiences at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour: "From the beginning when we started this, I think all our hopes and dreams were to be able to tell the whole story... and make it to be a complete story from beginning to end.

It's not yet known where the show will end, with Gould and fellow executive producer Gilligan avoiding the topic.

When asked if it will finish right when Breaking Bad starts or go further, Gilligan simply replied: "Maybe it's all of the above."

The Hollywood Reporter says the final season will get 13 episodes and we can expect them to be released in 2021.

Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, says it's very emotional saying goodbye to such an incredible show.

"Green-lighting a prequel to one of the most iconic series in television history is one of the boldest swings that AMC has ever taken," she said.

"But, thanks to the creative genius of Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, it has also been one of the most rewarding.

"It has been an absolute joy to collaborate with the extraordinarily talented team on Better Call Saul, which - five seasons in - continues to deliver some of the best storytelling and most beautifully nuanced performances on television today.

"We congratulate Vince, Peter, our producers, writers and cast on a remarkable run and look forward to sharing this final chapter with fans."

Season five will premiere next month and then there will be a long wait before we see how it all ends.
