Heisenberg is returning to the small screen, as the Breaking Bad character is back for a Super Bowl ad. EW reports that Bryan Cranston’s character of Walter White will appear in a PopCorners commercial that will air during Super Bowl LVII.

The report includes the first image, which shows a figure that certainly looks like Cranston with a bag of the chips in the Arizona desert. It’s worth noting that the figure’s face is darkened and it’s not clear if it is Cranston, and EW notes that it’s not certain whether Cranston will reprise the role.

The vice president of Frito-Lays marketing told the site in a statement, “We are excited to revive one of the most famous television shows of all time to tell the PopCorners’ story for the first time at the Super Bowl… and we can’t wait to see fans’ reactions to who and what’s coming.”

Cranston won four Emmys for playing the character in the AMC series, which ran from 2008 through 2013 and was a critical and ratings smash. He reprised the role for a couple of episodes of Better Call Saul, which completed its six-season run in August.

Super Bowl LVII takes place on February 12th and airs live on FOX.
