San Diego Comic-Con heard a knock on the door and opened it up to find Walter White and the rest of the Breaking Bad gang.
That’s right! All of you lucky humans heading to San Diego Comic-Con this year will be delighted to hear that the Breaking Bad cast will be reuniting for a special 10-year anniversary panel. Can I get a “yeah, bitch!”?
So, just who can you expect to see? Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Anna Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito, Betsy Brandt, Jonathan Banks and RJ Mitte will all be in attendance ready to talk all things crystal meth. Of course, they will be joined by the show’s legendary creator Vince Gilligan, who is sure to drop some incredible wisdom about the show that helped change the landscape of television into what’s been deemed “the golden age”. The panel will take place on Thursday, July 19 at 4:30 pm PT in Hall H.
Breaking Bad premiered January 20, 2008, on AMC and followed Bryan Cranston as Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with cancer who finds himself in the dark world of cooking meth with his clueless apprentice Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). The series went on to win 16 Emmy awards and currently holds a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. It inspired a spin-off, Better Call Saul, and still remains to be on the most well-written and thought out series to ever hit the small screen. The last time the Breaking Bad cast were all together at SDCC was back in 2013 when they attended for the series’ fifth and final season.
If you want to pregame what is sure to be an epic panel with some more Breaking Bad, you’re in luck because Better Call Saul will also be having its first SDCC panel this year. Odenkirk, Banks, Esposito and Gilligan will all be there along with Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando and Patrick Fabian and co-creator Peter Gould.

What’s one question you would ask the Breaking Bad cast if you were in attendance?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
