Sadly, the hit TV show Breaking Bad is nearing the end of its impressive run, as the show only has eight more episodes remaining.

However, while the popular series may be meeting its end of days real soon, the AMC network may actually be looking to take on a proposed spinoff.

According to Deadline, both AMC and Breaking Bad writer Vince Gilligan are currently in early talks to potentially do another series that would revolve around the character of Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).

If the show were to be picked up, Gilligan would spearhead the project along with writer/producer Peter Gould. However, the negotiations have just started and nothing has yet to be set in stone, stated Carter Matt.

In what's generally considered a dark program, Odenkirk's character has brought Breaking Bad some comic relief, which has garnered him a devoted following.

While all the details on how Breaking Bad will ultimately end haven't been revealed, AMC did release on-set footage from the remaining episodes.

"This is the end, my friend. It's a roller coaster ride to hell," said Bryan Cranston, who plays the part of Walter White.

Hints have also suggested that Walt's DEA brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris), whose usually just one step behind him, may finally discover Walt's secret identity.

In response to Hank's skillful investigative work, Cranston states the following in defense of his character:

"He doesn't know how to handle me. He doesn't even know where to come from."

As one looks back to the series' pilot episode and remembers Walt's initial motivation for cooking up meth in the first place, the audience can clearly see that his morals have grown increasingly corrupt.

Walt simply wanted to make a good nest egg to leave behind for his family, as he initially assumed he would die from his diagnosed cancer.

However, he found himself delving further into the drug business and his ego started to grow out of control along with his changing motives.

At the 2013 Academy Awards, Cranston spoke to The Associated Press about the end of Breaking Bad and the fate of his Walt character.

"There's nothing good, there's not going to be redemption. It's going downhill - it's ugly."

AMC's Breaking Bad is scheduled to make its season 5 return with episode 9 on July 14. Keep checking back for the latest details on both the show and its potential spinoff.
