Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul reveals he'll never play Jesse Pinkman again

After Breaking Bad, El Camino and cameos in Better Call Saul that really is it for Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman.

Aaron Paul has conclusively closed the book on his time playing Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad and various spin-offs.

It's been one hell of a ride since the first episode of Breaking Bad aired in 2008 and audiences got their first look at Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, the young meth cook who helps Walter White (Bryan Cranston) get into a life of crime.

Fans were hooked from the moment we saw him escaping through the window to evade a drugs bust right until his cathartic escape from captivity in a neo-Nazi meth lab.

Jesse Pinkman got his own spin-off movie, El Camino, which picked up right where Breaking Bad left off and showed us how he successfully evaded the police, ultimately disappearing to Alaska to start a new life.

He even showed up for a couple of cameo scenes in Better Call Saul, including an important moment where a brief chat with Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) seemingly leads him to suggest that he and Walter should start working with Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).

However, as far as Paul is concerned that's all folks as there's really no more left of Jesse Pinkman's story to tell as he won't be playing him again.

He told the Hollywood Reporter that his last cameo in Better Call Saul, which screened its final ever episode this week, was the last time audiences were going to see him.

He said: "I love Pinkman. He will always have a special place inside of me, but I can confidently say that was the last time we’re going to see Pinkman. So it was a nice farewell.

"It was such a fun ride. When we were finishing up Breaking Bad, Michael Slovis, our incredible DP, gave us all this really beautiful wrap gift and a note with a Dr. Seuss quote that said, 'Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened'. So I’m holding on to that."

As much as fans might be sad to hear it, it really does seem like that's it for Jesse Pinkman and it makes a lot of sense that we wouldn't see him ever again.

As a character his story is essentially over and so are those of pretty much every other character from the shows.

There's also a few other problems with 42-year-old Aaron Paul coming back time and time again to play a character in his early 20s.

He's not the only one closing the book on a potential return at some point in the future.

While AMC bosses have said their door is 'always open' for more shows revolving around the world of Breaking Bad, there are no plans to make any more shows at least according to Vince Gilligan.

It's important to know when the story is over, so perhaps it's for the best that Aaron Paul and everything associated with Breaking Bad is bowing out on a very high note.
