My facebook feed was mildly buzzing among friends recently with a photo of Breaking Bad character Jesse Pinkman that read, 'Some bad things don't come to an end,' indicating a new AMC spin-off series was coming in 2017.

While 'Better Call Saul' is a real Br-Ba spin-off about the early days of lawyer Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman, this rumored series featuring Jesse is not true.

I've found web postings (including this one from Time.com) dating back to June of 2015 that said Aaron Paul, the actor who portrayed Pinkman, had pulled a web prank on fans of the multiple SAG and Emmy Award winning series.


 

If you aren't convinced that is another round of that same prank, further examine the facebook post that told you a 'Jesse' spin-off was coming. You'll get confirmation you've been duped when Rick Astley's eternal, and unbearable, 'Never Gonna Give You Up' starts playing.
