One of the most-watched shows in television history is being made into a movie, and will air this fall on Netflix.

The feature-length film is titled ‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ and is set as a sequel revolving around Aaron Paul.

It will debut on Netflix Friday, Oct. 11 and later air on AMC, with Aaron Paul returning as meth cook Jesse Pinkman.

The official synopsis from Netflix read, “In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future.”

Last we saw Paul’s Pinkman, he was driving off from a Nazi compound to an unknown location.

Netflix confirmed that the thriller film will be written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the original series creator of Breaking Bad, which ran for five seasons and became a critical breakout for AMC.

Last July, Gilligan renewed his overall deal with Sony Pictures Television.

A minute-long teaser for the film features Skinny Pete (Charles Baker), who is being questioned by the police about the whereabouts of his friend.

“I don’t know what to tell you, I only said, like, 500 times already,” begins Skinny Pete in an interrogation room. “I have no idea where he is. Don’t know where he’s headed either. North, south, east, west, Mexico, the moon — I don’t have a clue. But yo, even if I did, I wouldn’t tell you.”

Bryan Cranston has been cagey about his possible participation in the film.

About six weeks ago, fans thought they were getting intel on the film when Cranston and Paul teased “a collaboration so smooth you can taste it,” on social media, but it turned out to be a mezcal company, Dos Hombres, that they were starting.

Breaking Bad is widely regarded as one of the greatest television series of all time.

By the time the series finale aired, it was among the most-watched cable shows on American television.

The Emmy-winning drama centered on terminally ill chemistry teacher Walter White teaming up one of his burn-out former students to create a meth empire.

In the series finale, which aired in 2013, Jesse escaped from the Neo-Nazis, survived a shoot-out, declined to shoot the mortally wounded Walt (who expired in the final moments of the episode), and then drove Todd’s car through the locked gates of the compound while screaming cathartically.

The car that Jesse was driving in that scene?

An El Camino.
