Breaking Bad aired on AMC from 2008 to 2014, and in those five seasons the series simultaneously put AMC on the map and ushered in a new generation of television. But with the show having premiered over a decade ago already, it's easy to forget just how groundbreaking Walter White's journey from chemistry teacher to meth kingpin was when it debuted. Though shows like The Leftovers, Fargo, and Game of Thrones have carried the torch with bold storytelling choices and earth-shattering cliffhangers, what's undeniable is that when Breaking Bad went off the air it left behind an iconic legacy that still can still be felt on TV to this day. And much of that TV still stars the Breaking Bad cast itself, as they have gone on to be a huge part of several shows that are considered essential in today's Peak TV world.

From Walt to Hank to Better Call Saul himself, the Breaking Bad cast is still churning out quality television all these years later - whether in front of or behind the camera. If you were a fan of the series and the actors that made it memorable, then look no further than the Breaking Bad cast projects that cropped up in the years since the series ended. The new shows from the Breaking Bad cast often feature the same style and gut-punching drama mixed with surreal humor that made the former series so popular, but even the series that veer in a totally different direction are still filled with things worth loving if you consider yourself the one who knocks and you can't get enough Breaking Bad.

If you were a fan of Walt, Skyler, Jesse, Hank, and Gus, then check out these shows that feature the actors after Breaking Bad and vote up the best follow-up projects.
