El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will eventually air on AMC, where the famous series began in 2008. The series ended in 2013 with a finale some claimed was one of the best in television history.

A trailer for El Camino was released in August, showing a storyline that appears to follow Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) as he tries to escape from Neo-Nazi captivity. Breaking Bad viewers know Pinkman was responsible for making meth, and it seems his past may haunt him in the two-hour story add-on.

Paul celebrated the release on Twitter Friday morning with a thanks to director Vince Gilligan. "30 minutes and the wait is over. Enjoy the ride. Love you Vince! You are a damn legend," he wrote.

Both professional and fan reviews heavily praised El Camino on Friday, saying it's the perfect ending to the ultra-famous story. The film picks up exactly where Breaking Bad left off six years ago.

Breaking Bad found additional longevity in a spinoff series: Better Call Saul. The show, which aired on AMC and Netflix, follows Saul Goodman, a pivotal attorney in the series. A fifth season is expected in 2020.
