(CNN) -- More "Breaking Bad" yo?

The series star Bryan Cranston seemed to drop a major hint in an interview with CNN's Ashleigh Banfield Thursday. Asked by Banfield if his character, Walter White, died or not, Cranston said, "Hey, you never saw bags zip up or anything. Or say ... you know." He left the rest up to viewers' imaginations.

"Breaking Bad" may be history, but stars Bryan Cranston, right, and Aaron Paul are still keeping the show in the spotlight. The two starred in a promotional video for the Emmys with Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") that included a clever reference to their meth-cooking characters -- as well as some digs at the awards. The AMC show is up for a vat-load of Emmys, including nominations for Cranston, Paul and best drama. Here are some indelible scenes from its five seasons (SPOILER ALERT: Read no further if you don't want plot points revealed).

Memorable moments from \'Breaking Bad\' Memorable moments from 'Breaking Bad'
Bryan Cranston inspired to act by a kiss

In response to questions about whether the character could show up in a movie or anywhere else ever again, Cranston said: "Never say never."

Whoa.

He may have been teasing, but that remark revived hopes for countless fans who still are mourning the loss of the character and the acclaimed series. The show literally went out with a bang in September 2013 and there was even a mock funeral held for the character in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the series was set and filmed.

Cranston has remained busy since the series ended, most recently starring in the summer film "Godzilla." And AMC has announced that "Breaking Bad" fans can look forward to a new series, "Better Call Saul," which will be a spinoff featuring criminal lawyer Saul Goodman.

What say you diehard fans? Do you think Cranston was kidding or not?
