It is undeniable that Breaking Bad is one of the most watched shows on television today, but Breaking Bad started out as just a simple idea. From this idea, a script was developed, which consequently gave birth to an incredible show, not to be missed.

Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Betsy Brandt, and Dean Norris had no idea that their acting auditions for Breaking Bad would lead them to Emmy Award nominations.

Breaking Bad aired its first five seasons from 2008 to 2013. At the beginning of the TV series, Bryan Canston, a high school chemistry teacher, was diagnosed with lung cancer. After he was unable to pay for his medical expenses, he decided to live a life of crime to come up with enough cash. He produced and sold crystal meth in order to help support his family’s financial needs before he dies. He teams up with his former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul.

Here is the spin-off to Breaking Bad: Better call Saul
