TV experts claim we live in a golden era of television, and Breaking Bad is one of the shows that made them feel that way. The first episode aired in 2008 and the entire cast of the epic series reunited to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Over the course of five seasons, Breaking Bad pushed the boundaries of storytelling and redefined television as we know it. It was a gripping tale of chemistry teacher–turned drug lord, whose life turned upside down after his cancer diagnosis. Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece won pretty much every award on the market and spawned equally successful spin-off Better Call Saul.
Entertainment Weekly’s 10th-anniversary photoshoot brought together all the actors from the main cast. Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn were among those who came together and took walk down the memory lane. Despite achieving a lot after Breaking Bad wrapped up, they got emotional while reminiscing about their days on the show.
“You can’t just move on. Something that was so indelible and meaningful in your life and you can’t, and I don’t want to. I want to hold on to those good memories of that gathering, both then and during our seven years together,” said Cranston.
