After his cameo in El Camino, Bryan Cranston is certain that his character Walter White may not make an appearance in Breaking Bad.
Fans are eager to know if Bryan Cranston will make an appearance in Better Call Saul. However, Cranston thinks that his Breaking Bad character got the ending that he deserved and he thinks that it is better left that way.

According to Cranston, Walter White should better be left where he was when the final season ended i.e. dead. Bringing him back will only over-expose the famous character. An appearance in El Camino in the flashback scene was more than enough.
In an interview, Bryan said,
I was content with the end of ‘Breaking Bad.’ I thought it was the perfect ending. I know I’m biased, but I don’t recall seeing the ending of a show that was so well-constructed, satisfying, and legitimate. Everything just seemed to fall into place so extraordinarily well.
The old saying ‘less is more’ is apt for Walter White’s appearance in Breaking Bad. It’s good to leave the audience with wanting more rather than giving them more than what they want. The fans crave more of Walter White in the show only because it is well-crafted.
Bryan also appreciated the work of his co-star Aaron Paul in Breaking Bad. He also added that Jessie Pinkman deserves to be on the top of the call sheet.
When asked about watching Breaking Bad again, Cranston said that he would like to do it with the ones who haven’t seen it yet. It is always fun to see the reactions of people to all the twists in the plot. Bryan said it is like getting ‘two shows out of one’.
