As, reported by Entertainment Weekly, spin off show ‘Better Call Saul’ is a go. Peter Gould, executive producer of of the spin-off told the New York Daily News that the spinoff will jump between decades and may even include scenes that take place during the Breaking Bad timeline.
This means it will be more than likely Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as Walter White aka the now cult figure Heisenberg.
“One of the great things about having a timeline which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before Breaking Bad, during Breaking Bad, and after Breaking Bad,” Gould told The New York Daily News. “That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on Breaking Bad.”
The show will not be depending on guest appearances though, Gould is very confident he will be able to strike gold twice and make another award winning tv show.
“We think we have a story that is worth making,” said Gould. “We could never dream of the kind of success that Breaking Bad had, and the love we got from the fans. But [with Saul] at a certain point you have to do the best job you can and tell the best story that entertains you, get a good response and hope people like it.”
The spin-off will reunite Bob Odenkirk with Jonathan Banks, who played fixer Mike Ehrmantraut on the original series. The rest of the cast includes Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian, Rhea Seehorn, and Michael Mando. Better Call Saul was originally scheduled to premiere in November; but AMC decided to push its debut back to early 2015. AMC is pretty confident the show will be a hit, and to show that they renewed it for a second season with another 13 episodes.
