Six years on, Breaking Bad fans will be able to catch up with at least one character. Netflix plans a feature-length movie this fall that will center on Jesse Pinkman, reports Fox Business. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie picks up where Breaking Bad left off with Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, as he breaks out of a Nazi compound. The film will begin streaming Oct. 11, per the Hollywood Reporter, and will later be shown on AMC. A trailer has been released that shows the meth cook being interrogated.

Vince Gilligan, the creator of the original series, wrote and directed the film. Breaking Bad, which starred Bryan Cranston for five seasons as Walter White on AMC, has already produced a successful spinoff. Better Call Saul has followed Saul Goodman for five seasons, also on AMC. (Read more Breaking Bad stories.)
