“I love Jesse, I love that guy so much, I miss him!” Paul said of his Jesse Pinkman, cooking partner and former student to Bryan Cranston’s Walter White during a 10th anniversary panel for “Breaking Bad” at Thursday’s Comic-con.
It was ten years ago that audiences were introduced to the two characters which went on to become one of the biggest pop culture icons in TV history.
And on Thursday, that chemistry between the two and the whole cast is as fresh and palpable as if time has not passed since. And there’s added bonus of course of Aaron Paul bringing his adorable baby to the panel.
Fans were understandably ecstatic to see the cast in panel to mark the neo-western crime television series’ 10th anniversay, which included Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Giancarlo Esposito, Bob Odenkirk, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte and show creator Vince Gilligan.
Set and filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico andran from January 20, 2008 through September 29, 2013 on AMC, the series was a huge hit and widely regarded as one of the bet ever.
And even after the show has ended, the show’s spirit is kept alive by “Better Call Saul”, a prequel which explodes that same world. In fact, just before this panel was the cast and creators of ‘Saul’ which discussed Season 4 and answer fan questions, and which also received a very warm reception.
“You will not see Walt or Jesse in Season 4,” Gilligan said, referring to fan speculation about the characters appearing in Better Call Saul, which is set to premiere August 6 on AMC. “I would suspect we would be sorely remiss if these characters didn’t appear on this show before it ended.”
“There’s definitely a chance Bob Odenkirk is going to be on ‘Better Call Saul,’” Cranston joked.
