El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie - trailer

Following the announcement of Breaking Bad sequel, El Camino, many fans wondered which characters could return for the new film.

Written and directed by creator Vince Gilligan, the feature-length sequel follows Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after he escapes from captivity in the series finale of the acclaimed drama – and fans will be excited to know that more than 10 Breaking Bad characters show up over the film’s two-hour running time.

So, which of the show's beloved characters have returned? Below is a full list.

*Spoilers follow – you have been warned*

Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul)

No surprises here – El Camino focuses on what happens to Jesse after the events of Breaking Bad’s final episode.

Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks)

Mike shows up in a flashback sequence at the very beginning of El Camino.

Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) and Badger (Matthew Lee Jones)

Immediately after escaping from captivity, Jesse hits up his old pals Skinny Pete and Badger.

Old Joe (Larry Hankin)

Remember that junkyard character who used to help out Jesse and Walt? He's paid a visit early into the film before dashing after realising the cops are close by.

Todd Alquist (Jesse Plemons)

Todd shows up in a flashback sequence that provides a glimpse of Jesse’s time in captivity. He’s shown letting the prisoner out of his cage to help him clean up the body of his cleaning lady unbeknownst to his white supremacist uncle Jack who’s out of town.

Jack and Diane Pinkman (Michael Bofshever and Tess Harper)

Jesse’s parents appear in a news broadcast, pleading for their son to turn himself in, and again when Jesse calls them before embarking on his new life in Alaska.

Ed “the Disappearer” Galbraith (Robert Forster)

Jesse visits Saul’s “last-resort option” after discovering Todd’s secret stash of cash. He’s looking for a new life and knows Ed’s the man to provide him with one – but the pair have unfinished business.

Kenny (Kevin Rankin)

Another member of Tom’s white supremacist group is seen – in flashback – taunting Jesse when he’s chained up in captivity.

Walter White (Bryan Cranston)

When the sequel was announced, many wondered if Jesse’s old meth cooking partner would show up, and the answer is yes. The pair reunite in a simple flashback scene that shows them eating food in a diner as Walt urges Jesse to go to college and study business once their time cooking meth is done.

Jane Margolis (Krysten Ritter)

Another flashback shows Jesse with his doomed lover, Jane.
