Breaking Bad’s Walter White could be coming to Better Call Saul
Walter White actor Bryan Cranston could be getting involved with the Better Call Saul series, Bob Odenkirk has revealed.
Rumours about potential Breaking Bad character returns have been ongoing ever since Better Call Saul began in 2015. We’ve already seen a couple of our old favourites appear in the spinoff, including Mike Ehrmantraut and Tuco, as well as Saul himself of course.
The ultimate cameo would obviously be the one and only Heisenberg, and apparently Cranston may actually get involved with the series. However, unfortunately for us, this would probably be behind the camera.
According to Jimmy McGill actor Odenkirk, Cranston could help direct an episode at some point in the future. When asked if he keeps in contact with his old co-star, the star told ShortList: “We don’t text all the time or hang out in bars, but I see him occasionally.
“He watches the show, he’s proud of it. There’s talk of him helping out soon, maybe directing an episode – we’d like to get him on board.”
So we can probably rule out a Walt appearance in season three, but we won’t be giving up hope on a brief cameo entirely. Especially since Odenkirk revealed how “the plan is to bring [McGill/Goodman] to where we met him in Breaking Bad“.
One comeback we can guarantee, however, is that of Gus Fring. Actor Giancarlo Esposito first confirmed he would be appearing in the Breaking Bad prequel in January, when he tweeted “I’m back!” alongside a teaser of the villain putting on his charming businessman persona. Additionally, a new trailer landed in March in which season footage of the character was finally unveiled.
Better Call Saul returns to AMC in the US on April 10 and will be available on Netflix in the UK on April 11.
