Furthering the mystery and intrigue, Breaking Bad writer and Better Call Saul showrunner Peter Gould quote tweeted Paul’s post and said, simply, “Looking forward to this.” Whatever “this” is remains to be seen.
The Breaking Bad Movie, Better Call Saul, or Something Else?
If it is related to the Breaking Bad film, it will be interesting to see how they incorporate Bryan Cranston’s Walter White as the film will reportedly be a sequel to Breaking Bad’s finale and will follow Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman. Further reports indicate that the film will air on AMC and Netflix, with it premiering first on Netflix.
If these posts hint that these iconic characters will be appearing in Better Call Saul’s fifth season, which is set to air in 2020, then it will be in line with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul’s creator Vince Gilligan’s comments last year in that “we would be remiss if we didn’t see these folks at some point in the series.”
The Lasting Impact of Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad ended its five season run in 2013, and in our review of the final season we called it a masterpiece and said, “this final batch of Breaking Bad is one of the best run of episodes TV has ever offered.”
Although its been six years since the end of Breaking Bad, its influences on media has not ended, as just a few days ago Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige discussed how these beloved series influenced the upcoming Marvel’s Black Widow prequel film.
