‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ Scores 6.5 Million Viewers Across First Weekend

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” which dropped on Netflix Oct. 11, drew around 6.5 million total viewers in its first three days on the streaming platform, according to Nielsen.

The movie also reached just under 8.2 million unique TV viewers. “El Camino” unsurprisingly drew its biggest audience of the three days on day 1, totaling 2.6 million U.S. viewers in its first 24 hours.

According to the trusted audience measurer, about 36% of the film’s audience over its first three days were adults in the ages 18-34 demographic. For comparison, the final season premiere of the meth-centered show drew 5.9 million total viewers on Netflix back in 2013.

“El Camino” stars Aaron Paul, returning to his iconic “Breaking Bad” role of Jeese Pinkman, who has to deal with the fallout from Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) death.

The last time viewers saw him, Jesse was escaping the drug lab where he had been chained up and forced to cook crystal meth as a prisoner of the Aryan Brotherhood. “El Camino” picks up directly after the finale and sees Jesse hunted by the police.

It also stars Jesse Plemons, Bryan Cranston, Krysten Ritter, Jonathan Banks, Larry Hankin, Matt Jones, Charles Baker, Robert Forster, Scott Shepherd, and Tess Harper, among others.
