Aaron Paul has confirmed that he will not return to play Jesse Pinkman again.

Paul played the meth dealer in all five seasons of Breaking Bad, sequel film El Camino and recently returned to the role for the last season of spin-off Better Call Saul.

Paul told The Hollywood Reporter: "[Jesse] will always have a special place inside of me, but I can confidently say that [Better Call Saul] was the last time we're going to see Pinkman. So, it was a nice farewell."

He said: "You can be away from that friend for some time, but when you are back in each other's company, it's like no time has passed. We all know our characters so well having played them for years, so it felt good. I love Pinkman."

Paul also spoke about being surprised to be asked to reprise the role: "Honestly, I did not expect a call to join Better Call Saul," he admitted. "I'm such a huge fan of the show, but I didn't see how they were going to do it. And when the call came, I was half a season behind, and so I didn't really know where the timeline was going. But from the moment they called me, I said: 'Yeah, they figured it out. They knew how to do it'... It was truly a dream to be back in this universe."
