Aaron Paul may be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman

There are numerous ways to watch (or re-watch for an eighth time) Breaking Bad: AMC, iTunes, old-fashioned DVDs.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news and also says that Netflix will screen the film first and then it will air on usa network AMC, a reverse of how Breaking Bad was first shown.

It is believed the movie will follow Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), the meth chef who was last seen escaping the clutches of neo-Nazis. While Breaking Bad was always critically acclaimed, it took a little bit for audiences to catch on, and Gilligan has said in the past that that might never have happened if not for AMC's deal with Netflix. Even Gilligan himself acknowledged that when accepting the show's first Emmy for Best Drama. That show has already been renewed for a fifth season.

The Breaking Badiverse (look at us, just making up words cause we feel like it here at ScreenCrush) already has one prequel: The ongoing AMC series Better Call Saul starring Bob Odenkirk in the years before his character transformed into the character he became on Breaking Bad.

Gilligan, who sources say is writing and directing the Breaking Bad movie, will be working alongside Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul executive producers Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson.

In November, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston confirmed the movie was happening but said that he had seen a script.

This is the second spin off of the hit show following the success of Better Call Saul, which now has four seasons. 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.

Fans are still left in the dark as to whether Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as Walter White, or if any of the supporting cast members will make an appearance.
