A “Breaking Bad” spinoff has been confirmed, had while many “Breaking Bad” fans might be lamenting the upcoming series finale later this month, “Better Call Saul” is on the way with a deal being reached. According to TIME Entertainment this Wednesday, Sept. 11, AMC has given the green light to a rumored but previously unconfirmed spinoff featuring everyone’s favorite corrupt lawyer, Saul Goodman (played by Bob Odenkirk).
The “Breaking Bad” spinoff, hesitantly at this time titled “Better Call Saul,” is now in actual talks, as AMC cable network officials, along with the “Breaking Bad” producer, are working with Sony Pictures TV in order to reach a final deal that will help jumpstart the new series.
“Better Call Saul” is essentially the latest ideas of genius and creator of “Breaking Bad” creator, Vince Gilligan, working with Peter Gould, who serves as a frequent series writer and producer for the hit series. (Gould in particular worked on the “Breaking Bad” episode that featured Bob Odenkirk’s character, Saul Goodman, first being introduced as the immoral criminal attorney).
It seems that according to early reports on this new “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better Call Saul” will be a prequel that looks into the life and happenings of Saul Goodman before he meets Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) and gets involved in, let’s say, less than always legal affairs.
There are little to no other details about the spinoff project at this time, but it is believed that the hotly anticipated rumors coming true will become another hour-long featured drama, and a big hit among already tantalized “Breaking Bad” fans. However, it’s also likely that this prequel series will be a little less serious at times than its popular precursor. It is also unknown if any other returning cast stars are coming back for “Better Call Saul,” including associate Kuby (Bill Burr) and Goodman’s personal bodyguard, Huell (played by Lavell Crawford).
Are you excited about a “Breaking Bad” spinoff that’s allegedly been confirmed this week? When the deal is finally reached, it will definitely be something to look forward to after this amazing series comes to its season finale.
