Breaking Bad creator said to expect Walter and Jesse in a future Better Call Saul episode — but when?!
The Breaking Bad cast reunited for a special 10-year anniversary interview with Entertainment Weekly in June, and it was then that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul (Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, respectively) announced their great desire to appear in an upcoming episode of Breaking Bad spinoff series, Better Call Saul. Creator Vince Gilligan basically said that he was into the idea, but that’s about it. Then, the cast reunited (again) in Hall H at Comic-Con 2018 on July 19th and Gilligan told the massive crowd that any cast member from Breaking Bad could pop into a future episode of Better Call Saul. Full stop.
Better Call Saul Season 4 premieres next month, so that’s fine — we can wait for those Walt and Jesse cameos in a future season. Better Call Saul already features great Breaking Bad characters like Gus Fring and Mike Ehrmantraut, but because Better Call Saul takes place before the events of Breaking Bad, the cameo could literally be the White family at a gas station and Saul Goodman is at the pump next to them — which is the exact kind of cameo Cranston wants.
However, creator Gilligan said that if he’s bringing Walter and Jesse back, it needs to be a real arc.
We have only one request for the Jesse cameo — can Paul’s five-month-old daughter in a baby hazmat suit come along as well? We know it would make zero sense in the context of the show, but let’s work it out.
