THE long-awaited Breaking Bad movie is finally about to be released – and you can watch it without moving from your couch.

El Camino is coming straight to Netflix tomorrow, Friday, and takes place immediately after the show’s dramatic finale when Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) escapes from a Neo Nazi compound.

News first broke in November 2018 that Breaking Bad’s creator Vince Gilligan was planning a film to tie in with the acclaimed series which came to an end six years ago.

Plot details have been closely guarded including whether the series' star Bryan Cranston will return as crystal meth lord Walter 'Heisenberg' White in flashbacks.

But El Camino will largely focus on Jesse's fate after Breaking Bad's ending and tying up other loose ends.

Trailers show Jesse contacting old allies including junkyard owner Old Joe (Larry Hankin) and Skinny Pete (Charles Edward Baker) while on the run

It is also said to feature a host of familiar faces from the series while filming again took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Breaking Bad launched in 2008 and was about a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer.

To support his family after he is gone, Walter White turns to a life of crime and teams up with his former student Jesse Pinkman to take on the crystal meth empire.

Hailed almost universally by critics, Breaking Bad is widely regarded as one of the greatest TV shows of all time, scooping 110 industry awards from 262 nominations.

It also spawned Vince Gilligan's acclaimed spin-off show, Better Call Saul, starring Bob Odenkirk.

So fans will be eagerly awaiting the follow-up film at the end of this week – but the question is: 'Will awards season be the one who knocks?'

El Camino is on Netflix and in selected cinemas from Friday
