Things We Saw Today: Aaron Paul And Bryan Cranston Tease a Possible Breaking Bad Reunion

But what does it mean?

Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) speeds towards freedom in the series finale of Breaking Bad

Do we need a sequel to Breaking Bad? Not really. Are we getting one? Most likely. Both Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul posted matching photos on Twitter with the caption “soon,” leading many to speculate that they’d be returning for the highly secretive Breaking Bad movie.

Many have theorized that the movie will be a direct sequel to the series, following Jesse Pinkman’s escape from the neo-Nazis that held him prisoner for a year (if you’re mad about spoilers, please consider that the show ended in 2013). This could explain why both Paul and Cranston are tweeting cryptically about a secret. Maybe Jesse actively hallucinates Walt’s ghost haunting him as he tries to make his escape?

Better Call Saul showrunner Peter Gould reacted to their tweets with his own cryptic post.

All we really know about the project is that Vince Gilligan is attached to it. I’m sure we’ll find out more soon though, if Paul and Cranston are hinting at the film and not some sort of six year reunion special.
