The long-rumored Breaking Bad movie has been officially confirmed, as well as that the film will be premiering on Netflix and AMC.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Netflix will have exclusive first rights to this new movie. Netflix originally had the streaming rights to Breaking Bad, which allowed the audience and fans of the series to grow outside of its original airing on AMC. With Netflix starting off in charge of the movie rights, the question of whether the Breaking Bad film will be shown in theaters before it premieres on streaming services remains to be seen.
This film will reportedly be a sequel to the original series, with Aaron Paul returning to reprise his role as Jesse Pinkman. This continuation of the award-winning series will reportedly continue right after the final season, with the film “following the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.”
