A Breaking Bad film set after the events of the hit television show and centred on meth addict-turned-cook Jesse Pinkman will be released on Netflix in October, the streaming giant said Saturday.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will pick up the story after Pinkman escaped the clutches of a neo-Nazi gang with the help of kingpin Walter White in the AMC show’s 2013 conclusion.
