At the end of Breaking Bad, we learn that Walter White was caught in the crossfire of his automated machine gun, and the series does seem to suggest that the character died due to his wounds. However, many diehard fans of the franchise have held onto the belief that maybe — just maybe — he had survived. With the El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie just about to hit Netflix, the long-held fan theory has started coming up again. Unfortunately for these fans, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan has put their theory to rest once and for all.
In a recent interview with Rich Eisen, Gilligan revealed the much-dreaded news that Walter White is indeed dead: “Yeah, I’m gonna give you that one, Rich, because I love you so much. Yes, Walter White is dead. Yes.” Gilligan was also asked if Bryan Cranston will return for El Camino to reprise his role perhaps in the form of flash backs or a dream sequence, but the creator merely shifted in his seat and refused to give a concrete answer. Unfortunately for fans, it seems the only way to know is to just watch the upcoming movie when it drops on Netflix.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will be available on Netflix October 11.
