In a new interview with the LA Times, “Breaking Bad” star and supporting player in every movie of the last two years, Bryan Cranston spoke about the possibility that 16 hour-long episodes might not be enough for Vince Gilligan to wrap up the story of Walter White and his little meth business.
Previously, the show runner openly talked about fearing that he wouldn’t have enough story to fill out the rest of the order, but now it seems the opposite may be true.
Interestingly, talk of extending the life of “Breaking Bad” has led Cranston to admit that he’s open to the possibility of a movie.

“It’s not far-fetched,” Cranston told the LA Times. “I wouldn’t mind visiting that possibility. And this is coming from a guy who doesn’t know anything of how the show’s going to end. If it doesn’t end up in a total apocalypse, who knows? Maybe we could revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If he’s still alive, that is.”
Cranston is a clever guy, and you can see that in his quote. If he went on the record saying, “Yes, a ’Breaking Bad’ movie is a possibility,” people would begin to assume that A) he knows how the series end, and B) Walter White walks away.
If this talk ensures anything, it’s that there is a far bigger world than what we knew before, which more or less ended with Gus Fring. What is this new threat that could extend the narrative beyond the remaining 16 episodes?
We will begin to find out when “Breaking Bad” returns on July 15.
