Breaking Bad went out with a bang in September.

But fans of the hugely popular series may be getting a new fix of their favourite characters in the near future.

In the February issue of Details, Aaron Paul reveals he and co-star Bryan Cranston want to make cameos in the upcoming spin-off, Better Call Saul.

With production on the spin-off scheduled to start later this year, the 34-year-old actor, whose character of Jesse Pinkman was last seen driving off into the sunset in the series finale, is eager to get back into those meth-covered shoes.

"Both Bryan and I want to be a part of that, if they'll have us."

Luckily, series creator Vince Gilligan has said he wants to bring both actors back for cameos on Better Call Saul, which stars Bob Odenkirk as sketchy lawyer Saul Goodman.

This is great news for Paul who says he never interfered with what the writers and producers of the show did.

"I never give my two cents when it comes to Breaking Bad, because why would I?" he says.

"I'm just the actor, and what they're doing is perfect, you know?"

But the Emmy winner does admit when the series was winding down he couldn't resist giving input and sent a letter to producers with suggestions of how he thought his character should die in the finale.

"I just felt like I would always regret it if I didn't at least throw them a pitch on how I wanted Jesse to go out. So I gave a few different ideas of how I thought he would kill himself. I didn't want anybody else taking his life."

While he says "the letter was awful" and producers, thankfully, didn't take the advice and spared Jesse's life in the end.

Interestingly, Jesse was supposed to be killed off in the first season but quickly became a fan favourite.

Aaron was nominated for five Emmys for playing Jesse and won two during Breaking Bad's five year run.

Back in September, the series finale attracted an all-time high of 10.3 million viewers.

Now married to gorgeous wife Lauren Parsekian, the 34-year-old will next be seen opposite Christian Bale in Ridley Scott's upcoming religious epic, Exodus.
