RJ Mitte is keen for a Walt Jr Breaking Bad spinoff

TV and Movies 28/01/2020

It's already been six years since the original run of Breaking Bad finished up, but drug lord Walter White's on-screen son has recently revealed that he thinks the story is far from over.

Actor RJ Mitte, who played Walter Jr., has revealed that he has been in talks with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan about potentially bringing the show back via another spin-off, this time centered around the aforementioned Walter Jr.

Mitte told The Sun - who has cerebal palsy just like his on-screen counterpart - expanding on the issues Walter Jr faced during would make for a gripping series.

"He is his father's son in a way of his actions and his moralities of what he's going to do would be right for his family," Mitte said.

"I think for us it would be a very hard life after what Heisenberg did to his family and I think that stigma would carry.

"But I would like to see Walt Jr. being a gangster."

While that is all we have to go off with that spin-off, an already existing Breaking Bad expansion will soon come to an end after six seasons, it has been revealed.

Better Call Saul - which follows Bob Odenkirk's character Saul Goodman - will wrap up after 63 episodes.

Executive producer Peter Gould told audiences at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour: "From the beginning when we started this, I think all our hopes and dreams were to be able to tell the whole story... and make it to be a complete story from beginning to end.

"We're going to try like hell to stick the landing of these 63 episodes."

Season five of the prequel series will premiere next month.
