Citing sources with close knowledge of the deal, Deadline reports the sequel to the game-changing television series will premiere on the streaming platform before it hits AMC, the show's original network.

And now for a little Breaking news.

The Emmy Award-winning series aired on AMC before seasons were later made available on Netflix.

When the Breaking Bad finale aired in 2013, viewers were pretty sure it was the last we'd seen of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).

Breaking Bad fans, better keep your Netflix and/or cable subscriptions up to date. As we previously reported, it is written and directed by Breaking Bad creator/executive producer Gilligan, who also co-created and executive produces AMC prequel series Better Call Saul.

And now it looks like it will be aired on Netflix, according to Deadline. "Not only are we standing up here, I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two.It's a new era in television, and we've been very fortunate to reap the benefits".

"I hear the script is being shot as a feature though it has not been determined yet how it will air, as a film or cut into episodes". No other details were provided on the movie's plot, however, other sources said that the sequel might be filming in Duke City, New Mexico, even though the New Mexico Film Office didn't provide comment on the matter.

Paul's on-screen counterpart Bryan Cranston confirmed the existence of the movie a year ago, but was circumspect on the chances of his teacher-turned-kingpin Walter White returning for a continuation of the story. "I can say and announce tonight, in front of your audience - exclusive announcement - that I can confirm that there is a Breaking Bad movie". It will follow the escape of a kidnapped man - Paul's character, Jesse Pinkman - and his quest for freedom.
