Breaking Bad fans have probably heard that series creator Vince Gilligan is planning a spinoff called Better Call Saul which will focus on lawyer Saul Goodman. The plan is for it to be a one-hour drama with a lot more comedy, but still set in the same world. Gillian says:
There’s obviously a danger inherent in doing a spinoff, but I just love the character of Saul Goodman [Bob Odenkirk] so much, and part of me doesn’t want to say no to this world. [Peter Gould and I are] both one-hour drama guys, so we figured, ‘Why not shoot Saul in the same way?’ Let’s shoot it in Albuquerque, let’s get as much of the crew back together as possible, and let’s do it the way we did it before so that it will be of a piece with that pre-existing fictional universe that we had so much fun creating.
There’s also a good chance they’ll be bringing in both Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul for cameos, with both reportedly having shown an interest in appearing in the spinoff. Goodman adds, “Personally, I’d have a hard time resisting putting all these guys in for a cameo or two every now and then.”
I think we’d all find that hard to resist!
