Breaking Bad: Spin-Off Details Revealed
Series creator spills the beans on new series, Better Call Saul...
Breaking Bad fans, get excited.
New details of the series spin-off Better Call Saul have been revealed.
The new show will apparently be set in 2002, six years before Saul meets Walter White in Breaking Bad.
Creator Vince Gilligan has confirmed to reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour that the show "is indeed a period piece."
Production is already underway on the show, and despite reports of possible cameos from the Breaking Bad cast, Gilligan said they'll only appear if it "makes sense to the show."
"If it makes sense we'll do it, if it doesn't make sense we won't," he replied when asked about the return of Bryan Cranston.
"I'd love to have him as a director, character wise, who knows? Maybe there's a way to do it," he teased.
Gilligan also hinted at the return of Giancarlo Esposito's character, Gus Fring.
"These are all characters we love and with Gus there is so much more to say about that character, and we certainly love Giancarlo.
"Having said that, we're trying to make something that stands on its own that has an entertainment value that's not just seeing a series of old favourites."
The spin-off series is said to track Jimmy McGill's transformation into Saul Goodman.
Gilligan also addressed why the show had been pushed back to 2015, explaining that he is as "slow as mud as a TV writer."
