In 2013 Heisenberg’s criminal empire ended, but maybe there’s someone waiting in the wings to continue the family business.

Breaking Bad followed the story of Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who becomes a meth dealer to pay for his medical expenses. As the series progressed, White descended deeper into the dark side, until he alienated his family, friends, and ultimately lost his life.

Since Breaking Bad concluded, viewers have been hungry for a sequel. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie revealed the fate of Walter White’s former partner Jesse Pinkman, while Better Call Saul revealed the secret history of Heisenberg’s former attorney Saul Goodman. But will we ever get a true Breaking Bad sequel, and if we did, what would it be about. After all, Heisenberg is dead.

However, the cast have an interesting idea for the direction of any potential Breaking Bad sequel. Speaking to a crowd at Awesome Con 2024, the cast began riffing about New Mexico, which led them down an interesting path.

“In New Mexico you can try that blue meth. Very good,” Luis Moncada, who played the hitman brothers Daniel and Luis Moncada, joked.

“It’s not blue anymore, I can tell you that,” says Walter 'Flynn' White Jr. actor RJ Mitte.

”I forgot to tell you guys,” Moncada said, pointing at Mitte. “Breaking Bad 2, when he [Mitte] takes over the Heisenberg empire …what’s it going to be, Flynn 3.0?”

”No .0, I’ll tell you that. They are all originals,” Mitte proudly answered.

Mitte's Flynn spent most of the series unaware of his father’s criminal activities. The series ended with Flynn estranged from his father. Could Flynn follow in his father’s footsteps as a drug kingpin in a Breaking Bad sequel? Probably not, but the cast loved exploring the idea.

“Flynn is flinging meth,” Steven Michael Quezada, who played DEA agent Steven Gomez, said with excitement. “What does 3.0 mean anyway,” Moncada asked, referring back to the original statement. ”3.0 is an update,” Mitte answered.

“So that’s a good thing,” Moncada asked. “It’s a great thing,” Mitte proudly said.

Could a Flynn White sequel to Breaking Bad be a great thing too? The premise doesn’t sound likely, but if series creator Vince Gilligan ever goes through with it, the cast seem like they’re up for it.
