Bryan Cranston doesn’t want ‘Breaking Bad’ to return

The actor said he didn't want to "mess with it"

Bryan Cranston says he wouldn’t want ‘Breaking Bad‘ to return for a new series. The show first aired in January 2008 and ran for five seasons before finishing in September 2013.

Cranston starred as Walter White and says that although he’s “very proud” of the acclaimed television series, he would not want it to return.

“We’re very proud of our show and ‘Better Call Saul’. In some ways, it’s best to leave it alone – that you want to think back on it favourably,” he said.

“I don’t want to mess with it. It was the perfect opportunity that changed all of our lives. It changed many lives on our show.”

The cast of Breaking Bad reunited at Comic Con yesterday (July 19), sharing their experiences of the show after it reached its tenth anniversary.

Cranston discussed how he initially knew that the show had become popular, saying: “Nobody knew who we were. I knew we started to make an impact when the directional signs started to be stolen,” Cranston said, in reference to signs that told cast where to park.

“I kept thinking, ‘Not only am I getting lost, but something is happening.’”

Aaron Paul also praised his chemistry with Cranston, explaining how the actor often teased him that Jesse would die. “He comes up to me and just gives me a really long, exaggerated hug,” said Paul.

“And he’s just not letting me go. I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ ‘Hey man, it’s been a fun ride.’ I’m like, ‘What do you mean?’ … He walks away.”
