Are ‘Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ Linked? Netflix Video Breaks Down Fan Theory

Fans of both “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead” have one question: are both series’ linked?

Netflix released a video Wednesday detailing fan theories that “Breaking Bad” is actually a prequel to hit zombie apocalypse series. The four-minute clip goes on to present evidence that the two are actually situated in the same universe.

“What if ‘Breaking Bad’ was about more than Walter White starting as a bumbling chemistry teacher and turning himself into a full-fledged monster?” the video asks. “What if he turned everyone into full-fledged monsters?”

The video goes on to theorize that Walter White started the zombie epidemic in “The Walking Dead” with the meth he created. The claims are supported with four key details that allegedly appear in both series’: Bluy Sky meth, the red Dodge with black stripes, as well as two characters that are possibly linked: Jesse Pinkman and Gus Fring.

This isn’t the first time that “Breaking Bad”/”Walking Dead” speculation has surfaced. In 2014, similar hypotheses arose that the “Walking Dead” is a continuation of events that followed in “Breaking Bad.” Though many of these claims may be dicey, it hasn’t stopped the public from wondering the truth.
