Breaking Bad Cast Reunite For Ten-Year Anniversary

Breaking Bad Cast Reunite For Ten-Year Anniversary

Breaking Bad is arguably one of the best TV shows of modern times, and I'm sure plenty of fans would agree.

The beloved show gave us Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, and Saul Goodman, it gave us explosions and gun fights in the desert and a middle-aged chemistry teacher making Class A drugs in his y-fronts.

The cast of this ground-breaking programme have just reunited for the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.

They'll also get back together again for San Diego Comic-Con in July.

Although fans still have access to the Breaking Bad world through the spin-off series Better Call Saul, nothing's ever quite compared to the original show.

Vince Gilligan, the show's creator, also joined the cast in front of the battered RV camper van that is so iconic.

There's an hour-long video to go along with the shoot. In a clip, Bryan Cranston (who starred as Walter White) talks about why the script for the pilot episode was the best he's ever read.

"Nowhere in the pilot script does it say where that journey is going to go," he said.

"When he [Vince] told me he wanted to change this character from good to bad, completely, we realised that this has never happened before. What Vince Gilligan did was change the construct of what was possible in series television."

Walter's descent from a struggling dad and high school teacher to a legit villain and murderer made him one of the best characters on TV, ever.

They also discussed the original plan to kill off Jesse Pinkman, played by the amazing Aaron Paul, at the end of the first season.

"That was one of the greatest moments of Breaking Bad for me, was realising this kid was gold," explained Vince.

"This character was gold and the young actor playing him was a keeper. We needed to keep him around."

Most of the cast look like they've barely aged a day on the cover shoot, except, of course, RJ Mitte. The actor played Walter White Jr in the show, and he was just a teenager at the time. Now he's an actual grown-up who works hard to raise awareness for Cerebral Palsy, a condition he and his character suffer with.

The interview that goes with these amazing pictures apparently hints that we might see Walt and Jesse back together in future episodes of Better Call Saul, which is set six years before Breaking Bad.

Super fans will also notice props from the series reappearing in the pictures - there's the pink teddy bear, a pizza on the roof, and Hank is holding a beer.

If this doesn't make you want to go and binge the whole lot all over again, nothing will.
