‘Breaking Bad’ Spinoff 'Better Call Saul,' Following Saul Goodman, May Get Greenlight
Breaking Bad will wrap up its sixth and final season this summer, leaving a gaping whole in AMC’s quality TV lineup. Although nothing could quite replace the meth-centered show, a spinoff centered on corrupt lawyer Saul Goodman played by Bob Odenkirk could very well be in the works.
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan remains enthusiastic about the prospect of a Better Call Saul series. “We are plugging away coming up with a pitch and a take on it for the network and studio and hopefully everyone will agree that there’s a really fun show to be had here,” Gilligan told thewrap.com.
Saul served as Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman’s (Aaron Paul) resourceful lawyer throughout Breaking Bad’s run. His unique moral code made him the perfect match for the unlikely pair of mass meth producers – though sometimes even he had trouble wrapping his head around their latest dilemma. Odenkirk’s take on the smarmy attorney at law often provided the drama’s comic relief, which could mean the spinoff will take the form of a half-hour comedy sitcom.
The prospect of Better of Saul is uncertain at best, and not just because the pilot hasn’t been greenlit – but because there’s still eight more episodes of Breaking Bad in which he could meet his demise. Breaking Bad’s final episodes will begin airing Aug. 11 on AMC.
