Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul might be appearing on the upcoming spinoff Better Call Saul.
Paul recently spoke in an interview with Details magazine about Better Call Saul, expressing his desire to be in the spinoff.
"Both Bryan [Cranston] and I want to be a part of that, if they'll have us," Paul admitted.
Better Call Saul will star Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, the corrupt lawyer who became a scene-stealer in Breaking Bad through several seasons of the show. Both Walter White (Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Paul) enlisted in Saul for their various legal troubles.
The only logical way for Cranston to appear again as Walter White would be if Better Call Saul was a prequel, considering he died in the final episode of Breaking Bad. Additionally, the end of Saul's run on the show features the character changing his identity and moving away from New Mexico. Unless there is a flashback, it seems unlikely that Cranston would make anything bigger than a cameo appearance.
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will also be producing Better Call Saul. The creator said that the spinoff will probably be a prequel.
"The wonderful thing about the fractured chronology we employed on Breaking Bad for many years is the audience will not be thrown by us jumping around in time," Gilligan explained. "So it's possible that we may indeed do that, and we'll see the past and perhaps the future."
Better Call Saul will air on AMC at some point in the future, though the network has not yet scheduled a specific premiere date yet.
