Bad news, Breaking Bad fans: the item doesn’t look like Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul will be appearing on Better Call Saul This particular season, nor does the item seem like a reboot is usually inside the cards.
Vince Gilligan, the mastermind behind Breaking Bad, broke the Better Call Saul news at the AMC hit’s 10th anniversary reunion of its premiere during Thursday’s Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con. There had been speculation of which Cranston’s Walter White or Paul’s Jesse Pinkman could make their way onto the prequel series sooner rather than later, as Better Call Saul is usually fast approaching the Breaking Bad timeline.
“You will not see Walt or Jesse in season four in Better Call Saul,” Gilligan said during the reunion panel.
“We hate jerking folks around, like, ‘Yeah, we can contain the item [happen]!’” he further explained, adding of which the item’s not in his nature to mislead fans of the show or string them along with false teases.
although Gilligan made sure to reiterate of which Walt as well as Jesse will more than likely come into the Better Call Saul universe at some point — the how, when or why of the item being the biggest question. “We could be sorely remiss if we didn’t have these guys on the show before the item ended,” he hinted.
Talk of a Breaking Bad revival has permeated the conversation, although Cranston didn’t seem interested in revisiting the planet again. The hour-long series ran for 62 episodes over 5 seasons through 2008 through 2013.
“We’re very proud of our show as well as Better Call Saul. In some ways, the item’s best to leave the item alone – of which you want to think back on the item favorably,” Cranston said. “I don’t want to mess with the item. the item was the perfect opportunity of which changed all of our lives. the item changed many lives on our show.”
Later, a fan asked about the potential for a Breaking Bad movie for the big screen. “Anything’s possible,” Gilligan replied. “We live in a world fraught with possibilities — Great as well as bad.” although Cranston offered a stern, “No.”
Despite his star’s refusal, Gilligan appeared open to revisiting various other Breaking Bad characters inside the future for potential spinoffs — most notably Paul’s character Jesse (“Not saying there will be!”). “Anything’s possible,” he said.
A true highlight came even before the panel began, when Paul brought his 5-month-old daughter, Story, dressed as a baby Walter White to cheers as well as “aww’s” through the audience. Afterward, Paul quipped, “is usually my wife here? She’s supposed to come pick my baby up!”
