For four seasons straight, creator Vince Gilligan has overseen a near-perfect narrative of suspense and drama in “Breaking Bad,” and it has all been in service of showing Walter White through his inevitable path to darkness. As the series enters its fifth season next month, viewers are ready to finally see that bleak conclusion, but a few choice words from Bryan Cranston recently regarding his character have entertained other potential avenues to come.

Although initial decisions were to maintain the series' narrative as airtight as possible, Cranston revealed to the LA Times that Gilligan might have underestimated the sprawl of his characters' journey. “Vince feels that now we have too much story,” Cranston said. “We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes.” Naturally, as with other shows like “24” and “Deadwood,” the logical extension would be a feature film finale of sorts, and the actor isn't completely against that idea. “It's not far-fetched,” he commented, “I wouldn't mind visiting that possibility. And this is coming from a guy who doesn't know anything of how the show's going to end.”

That last bit of Cranston's comment makes for the most hesitation, because with the actor in the dark about his character's endgame, Gilligan could be (and most likely is) reading these comments and chuckling devilishly. Still, even with the tragic arc of the series thus far, Cranston still seems somewhat optimistic, as he posits the film could “revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If he's still alive, that is.”

One aspect gone unmentioned by Cranston is the possibility of Walter White becoming simply the most odious person to base a film around. Speaking on the upcoming season, Gilligan added, “[Walter's] going to be a harder guy to root for, I promise you that. The experiment of the show has been to take a good guy and have him transform himself into a bad guy. And we're committed to seeing that through to the very end.”

Whatever that end is, we'll have to wait and see, but considering Gilligan's track record thus far, a bit of blind faith could certainly be spared for “Breaking Bad,” the new season of which starts July 15th. And in the meantime, check out some teaser photos (via Collider) hinting at possible character dynamics and story arcs below.

(Spoiler warning: Don't read this if you don't want some general details about season 5 of "Breaking Bad")

Anna Gunn's recent popularity on "Breaking Bad" may say something about human nature.

Plenty of viewers griped about her character, Skyler White, early in the show, when she was an obstacle in husband Walter White's journey from cancer-stricken teacher to meth kingpin. But Skyler has become much more liked as she's come to support Walt's criminal enterprise -- and even become his money-launderer-in-chief.

"At first I didn't understand: Why do people think Skyler's a bi-ch?" Gunn told TheWrap. "She's this woman who's trying to keep the family together, and her husband is cooking crystal meth. … I think that people were so behind Walt that they saw Skyler and said, 'Why are you giving him such a hard time?'"

But Skyler has become a crucial partner in Walt's growing meth empire. An accountant by trade, she's also demonstrated a gift for creative bookkeeping. After helping her boss, Ted Beneke, hide revenue from the IRS, she played dumb for an agent by explaining she balanced the books with "the Quicken."

"As she has become badder and turned a corner, she becomes more of a human being, where before it looked like she was more of a moral pillar" Gunn said. "And Skyler is not somebody who shows a huge amount of emotion. She holds her cards very close to the vest. I think that had something to do with the perception of her," Gunn added. "As the complexity has come into her character, I think she's becomes much more of a human being that people can relate to."

Emmy voters have another chance to recognize that complexity this Emmy nominating season. While Bryan Cranston has won three Emmys for playing Walt, and Aaron Paul has one won for playing his partner, Jesse Pinkman, Gunn has yet to receive a nomination.

Gunn spoke to us about her role as she prepared to return to Albuquerque to shoot the last episode in the show's two-part final season. The first eight episodes will begin airing July 15, and the final eight will air next year.

We talked about the one character on the show who seems incorruptible, whether Walt and Skyler will be caught by the IRS rather than the DEA, and the chances of a "Breaking Bad" movie once the series wraps.

You're shooting the last episode of the first half of season 5. Then coming back to shoot the rest near the end of the year. Can you talk about how a two-part season affects the story arc? Usually "Breaking Bad" builds to about the sixth episode and then things start happening very fast.

I've got to say, it's a pretty rapid rise this time the whole way. It starts off really strong and it doesn’t ramp up.
