‘Better Call Saul’ To Also Play Out As A Sequel

Movies & TV

/ November 7, 2013

According to Bob Odenkirk, his current life as lawyer Saul Goodman is a mystery. AMC’s plans for the spinoff series are sounding better and better by the minute.

Those who are still catching up on the brilliant Breaking Bad, we won’t try and spoil it for you. The final episode of the series left us pondering the fates of its main cast. Luckily for us, a new chat gives us some clues.

The idea of loud, obnoxious, flamboyant Saul trying to “manage a Cinnabon in Omaha,” as he imagined it, seems packed and ready with comedy blue meth. IGN asked the actor whether his new show might incorporate scenes from the character’s post life.

Read what Odenkirk said below:

“Well, I’ve talked to Vince (Gilligan) and Peter (Gould), who are writing and creating the series, about this and I’ve said that a lot of people do want to see what happens next to Saul. So, I don’t know what they’re going to do. I know they’ve talked about [doing it as a] prequel, but they’ve also talked to me about it being a sequel, and they’ve also talked to me about a mix of prequel and sequel.”

The idea of it being a “prequel and sequel” would allow Better Call Saul to be full of easter eggs and hidden surprises. Rumor already is that Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston would make their own appearances on the show.

Either way, Gilligan and Gould should be setting a course soon. “Well, supposedly the writers are starting up in two or three weeks, so they’re trying to get that ready,” said Odenkirk.

How do you see the show shaping up? Let us know in the comments section below.
