Kinda felt like we were waiting a long time for this one. Oh wait, two damn years. Come 18 April, we'll not only get the finale of Vince Gilligan's Better Call Saul—one of the best TV shows out there you don't even have to fight me on this—we'll apparently be treated to cameos by the titular characters of Breaking Bad.
While we got to see Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman and briefly, Bryan Cranston's Walter White (plus a slightly uh, different Todd Alquist) in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, we don't know where exactly in the timeline either characters would appear, especially when the fate of one has been explicitly spelled out while the other technically hasn't.
All this was recently confirmed by co-creator Peter Gould at PaleyFest LA. Bob Odenkirk, who plays lead Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill, went on to add, “If you can believe it, there’s more.” Prior on the Thursday red carpet, the actor also told Variety, “I personally feel that the two shows—‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul’— are entwined even more than ever in the final season. And I think that’s surprising and cool, and it’s gonna make you want to watch ‘Breaking Bad’ again.”
We can only speculate what this could potentially mean, not to mention amidst talks of a Gus Fring solo series. Though, almost any character in the Breaking Bad universe could easily earn its own spinoff given how complex they individually are -cough-Nacho-cough-.
For now, Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks, Giancarlo Esposito, Michael Mando and Tony Dalton continue to reprise their roles. The 13-episode finale will roll out the first seven episodes from April 18 and culminate with the final six episodes beginning July 11.
