‘Breaking Bad’ Return: Bryan Cranston Says ‘Never Say Never’

Variety cover star Bryan Cranston has only just completed his acclaimed five-season run on AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” but fans still haven’t given up hope that we might see a return for his character, Walter White, somewhere down the line.

In a recent interview with CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield, Cranston addressed the possibility that Walter might not be as dead as he seemed in the finale, teasingly telling the anchor, “You never saw a bag zip up or anything …”

When Banfield asked whether Walter was definitively dead, he coyly responded, “I don’t know,” and when pressed about a potential return to the character in a movie or some other medium, Cranston offered, “Never say never, let’s just say that.”

While Cranston might’ve been attempting to let fans down gently, there is a legitimate way for Walter White to return to our screens without cheating death; AMC is currently developing a spinoff to “Breaking Bad” — “Better Call Saul,” a prequel that will be set before the events of the hit drama. Though the series will center around the less-than-savory activities of Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), lawyer to Albuquerque’s criminal underworld, its prequel status means that returns for Cranston and “Breaking Bad” co-star Aaron Paul aren’t completely out of the question.

Watch Cranston’s interview in its entirety below.

Better Call Saul” will premiere on AMC in November 2014.
