Is Walter White still alive in El Camino?

Breaking Bad ended with the image of Walter White on the ground of a meth lab bleeding out from gunshot wounds.

The camera pulled up as a smile of satisfaction came across Walter’s face while he lay motionless on the floor. Then a policeman rushed over to check his pulse as the screen cut to black and the show came to an end.

While many fans were unsure if that meant the character had actually died, the writer-director Vince Gilligan has now confirmed his fate.

Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, he admitted: "Yeah, I’m gonna give you that one, Rich, because I love you so much. Yes, Walter White is dead. Yes.”
