“Better Call Saul,” the much anticipated spinoff from AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” is cooking up a plot to bring back Walter White.
Executive producer Peter Gould told The New York Daily News that the series will have a flexible timeline, meaning the plot can revert back and forth from several decades, including Walter White’s meth-making days.
“One of the great things about having a timeline which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before ‘Breaking Bad,’ during ‘Breaking Bad,’ and after ‘Breaking Bad,’” Gould said.
He said it gives the show the ability to bring back characters who were killed on the series.
But Gould has big ratings to fill and admitted he felt pressured to recreate the same quality the other series had, which inspired cult-like fans. While he wants to bring Bryan Cranston back to at least guest-star, he said they want to make a show that “stands on its own” and it will not “stand or fall” based on his return.
“We think we have a series worth making,” Gould said.
Bob Odenkirk plays Saul, the zany lawyer first introduced on “Breaking Bad.” The series has already been confirmed for two seasons, with the first premiering in 2015.
