The film reunites the original creative team including series creator Vince Gilligan and picks up immediately after the events of the series finale. The official synopsis released by Netflix states that:
“In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future.”

Breaking Bad won 16 Primetime Emmy Awards, including Paul’s three wins for his performance as Jesse Pinkman.
