“Breaking Bad’s” end is drawing ever nearer. The final eight episodes of the show are set to air starting on Aug. 11, and filming on the series has already wrapped. When Zap2it caught up with series star RJ Mitte at the Saturn Awards, and he says he’s a bit nervous to see how people respond to the finale.
“Think of anything that will go wrong in the right way, and that’s ‘Breaking Bad,'” he says. “It’s really crazy because they ended the show, it’s really interesting because at the end of the day it was an inevitable end and I’m truly excited to see what people will think and how people are going to react because they outdid themselves. It’s been a pleasure.”
But what about the rumor that there could be a “Breaking Bad” movie? An “inevitable end” seems to imply Walter White’s death — or at least incarceration — but it’s unclear how “Breaking Bad” would continue on in film form without him. For his part, Mitte hopes there is a movie in the “Breaking Bad” cast’s future.
“I hope there’s a ‘Breaking Bad’ movie, I hope there’s a ‘Breaking Bad’ sequel TV show, I hope there’s more, more, more, but there’s only so much story that can happen,” he says. “When this ends and people see it, I think either one they will be very satisfied, or a little hostile, so we’ll see what happens.”
“Breaking Bad’s” final eight episodes start airing on AMC on Aug. 11 at 9 p.m.
