Walter White not dead? Bryan Cranston says 'never say never' to Breaking Bad return

The US actor has hinted in an interview that he could reprise his famous role

Fans might not have seen the end of Walter White, after Bryan Cranston hinted that there may be more to come from Breaking Bad.

The US actor, 58, refused to rule out reprising his role as a chemistry teacher turned meth manufacturer, despite his character supposedly dying in a dramatic shootout during last September’s finale.

CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield questioned Cranston over the legitimacy of White’s demise, pointing out that his eyes were open. “I thought, ‘What if the police just take him into custody, he gets better, breaks out and just goes nuts?’” he said.

Cranston played along, agreeing that “you never saw bags zip up or anything” and admitting that he does not know if White is truly dead.

Banfield then asked about the possibility of a Breaking Bad movie with White back in action, to which Cranston replied: “Never say never.”

He has previously expressed a wish to guest star in forthcoming spin-off series Better Call Saul, but whether he will bag a part along with co-star Aaron Paul remains to be seen.

Cranston has made his love for Breaking Bad clear in the past, praising the Netflix series for exploring “the whole spectrum of human experience”.

Let’s hope White’s death wasn’t “just a dream” as some fans are guessing – Breaking Bad is better than that.
