While fans knew a Breaking Bad film was coming, Saturday brought a surprise courtesy of a small leak from Netflix. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie was confirmed for a premiere on Oct. 11 by the streaming platform, with Aaron Paul returning to reprise his role as Jesse Pinkman in a new story from series creator Vince Gilligan.
The news was followed by a teaser for the film, giving fans plenty to take in and sift through concerning the modern classic series. This includes the return of some memorable characters, references to some that aren't around anymore, and hints that Pinkman isn't finished running just yet.
Many fans were just pleased to see the series return, providing some simple excited reactions over the return of Gilligan's world, post-Walter White.
"This better not mess up the high it ended on," one concerned-but-excited fan wrote.
"I THOUGHT I COULDNT CRY ANYMORE HAPPY TEARS BUT THEN Y'ALL PULL THIS," another fan added. "IM SO EXCITED."
A few others shared their theories for what we might end up seeing in the film when it premieres. Has Jesse moved on to take over Walter White's operation somehow? Is he just on the run, attempting to leave his past behind him? The Netflix plot description leaves it open for interpretation right now, with many fans running with it.

Elsewhere, some fans wanted to know what the fate of other characters who survived the Breaking Bad finale ended up being. While the trailer gives us some quality time with Skinny Pete as he refuses to give up Pinkman's whereabouts. But what about his other friends? What about a crossover with Saul Goodman? And what about Huell? Is he still sitting in that motel room?
The teaser trailer also gives a great Easter egg to fans in the form of the two pictures on the wall of the room outside the interrogation room.
But in the end, most fans are just concerned with one character in particular. And judging by the smile on his face, it'll be nice to see him return.
