Cranston returned as White in the 2019 Netflix followup movie El Camino, which starred Aaron Paul immediately after the show's series finale. In Better Call Saul, several iconic Breaking Bad characters have made appearances, including Dean Norris' character, Hank.

In a March interview with Entertainment Weekly, Norris, 57, said returning to play the DEA agent seven years after Breaking Bad wrapped was “surreal.”

“Obviously, that show had such an impact on my life — on everyone’s life — and I have such great memories, and here we are more than 10 years later, at least from the start of the show,” he said.

“So it was weird and it was great and it just brought back good memories,” Norris added. “It brought back a lot of reminiscing; so much of the crew is the same — at least half if not more. And, of course, being back in Albuquerque and all the feelings you’ve had of that time that had been passed. So now I get to go back and revisit all that stuff — and it was really special.”

Giancarlo Esposito also returned for Better Call Saul, scoring an Emmy nomination this year for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series.

Esposito explained, according to EW, that while he was “honored to be asked to come back and recreate this character,” he had to remind himself that Gus was “a little more immature from when we left off. I’m reminding myself that he’s still finding his way, business man that he is, in regards to where we left off where he was at with the cartel.”
