Ever since Season 1 of Better Call Saul, fans have been waiting for Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul to finally show up. Now Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have commented on the long-awaited “Breaking Bad” crossover – and apparently, it’s really happening!
While Better Call Saul has managed to keep Breaking Bad fans happy, there’s still one issue that hasn’t been satisfactorily resolved: the much-anticipated appearances of Bryan Cranston aka Walter White, and Aaron Paul aka Jesse Pinkman in the spinoff. For a long time, it was more than questionable whether this fan dream will come true, but now the creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have expressed very promising things in this regard.
In an interview with Variety, the duo was asked (again) about a possible crossover of “Better Call Saul” and “Breaking Bad” – primarily in relation to Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, of course. The following statements were made in this regard:
“It would be a damn shame if the show ended without them showing up, wouldn’t it?” Gilligan said. He later added, “You heard it here first.” Gould went on to say, “These two worlds intersect in a way you’ve never seen before, that’s for sure.”
So fans of “Better Call Saul” and “Breaking Bad” should finally get what they’ve been waiting for for a good seven years – and they don’t have to wait too long either: On April 19, 2022, the sixth and final season of “Better Call Saul” will start on Netflix. As Kim actress Rhea Seehorn revealed early on, the season will start in two parts. The second part of the final season will be shown in Germany on July 12, 2022.
Lots of other returnees
Of course, with Better Call Saul being a prequel to Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould also had to be mindful of the timeline. Well, with Better Call Saul Season 6 getting closer to Breaking Bad, the return of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Pinkman is inevitable. Before that, the two stars reprised their iconic roles in 2019’s El Camino: A Breaking Bad Film, which you can watch on Netflix or grab directly from Amazon:
Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul wouldn’t be the first known faces from Breaking Bad to make it into the spin-off. Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis), Don Eladio (Luis Politti), the Salamanca twins (Luis and Daniel Moncada), Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) have already been seen. and Steven Gomez (Steven Michael Quezada).
