It's not a big surprise that there would be a direct follow-up to Breaking Bad, which won numerous awards and is heralded by many as one of the greatest shows in modern television, if not of all time. In the movie, Pinkman, who's wrongfully kidnapped by perpetrators, manages to escape and sets out to live a free life. It is being written by Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan, and given that AMC has usa streaming rights only, it is unclear where it will air in other areas of the world.

Interestingly, the sources said that Netflix would have first-run rights for the movie, but that it would still air on AMC later.

Inside sources are reporting that the feature film continuation of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad will drop first on Netflix before heading to AMC, the network that aired all five seasons of the iconic series.

The Hollywood Reporter called the film "a sequel" to the TV show and confirmed it would be helmed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. While Breaking Bad was always critically acclaimed, it took a little bit for audiences to catch on, and Gilligan has said in the past that that might never have happened if not for AMC's deal with Netflix.

I think Netflix kept us on the air. "Not only are we standing up here, I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond Season 2". Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, both of whom have worked with Gilligan on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, are on board as producers. Production is believed to be wrapping up this month in New Mexico. Bryan Cranston has previously said he's unsure if there's a role for him in the film, but that he's interested in being involved if there is.

This is the second spin off of the hit show following the success of Better Call Saul, which now has four seasons. "If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, then sure, absolutely", Cranston said previous year.
