Netflix just released a new trailer for El Camino, the Breaking Bad sequel film, during the 2019 Emmys. The film picks up after the series finale, and will reportedly follow Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman as he attempts to get out of Albuquerque, New Mexico after having been rescued from a gang of white supremacists by Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston in the series.
Along with Paul, it's been revealed that Breaking Bad actors Charles Baker and Matt Jones — who play Jesse's friends Skinny Pete and Badger Mayhew respectively — will also appear.

Many fans have wondered if Cranston would return as well, even though it was made pretty clear in the series finale that he died, or was dying.
In a 2018 interview, Cranston addressed the new movie — which was mostly just a rumor at the time — and stated that he wasn't sure if he'd be asked to be a part of the film, but that he would absolutely do it if Gilligan wanted him to.
“I’m hoping when the movie comes out, people won’t say, ‘Oh, man, this guy should’ve left well enough alone.’” #BreakingBad creator Vince Gilligan explains why he risked messing with the legendary drama to make #ElCamino https://t.co/Z1BsHVp7X4 pic.twitter.com/m0ihLeRmWd— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) September 18, 2019
"There appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad, but I honestly have not even read the script... I have not gotten the script, I have not read the script," he stated. "So there's question of whether or not we will even see Walter White in this movie."
"I would, I would. Absolutely. If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely," he stated. "He's a genius, and it's a great story. And there's a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open."
