To quote one of Breaking Bad‘s famous catchphrases, “Yeah bitch!” In the final season of AMC’s Better Call Saul, co-creator Peter Gould has announced that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will guest star as their iconic Breaking Bad characters Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
The news was announced at PaleyFest during the festival’s Better Call Saul panel. Gould said to the audience “I don’t want to spoil things for the audience, but I will say the first question we had when we started the show was, ‘Are we gonna see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of evading, I’ll just say yeah. How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself, but I have to say that’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season.”
Better Call Saul is a prequel to Breaking Bad which charts Jimmy McGill’s origin into the criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. Goodman was introduced in Breaking Bad’s second season when Walt and Jesse hired him for help and he quickly became a breakout character and central figure in Walt and Jesse’s criminal dealings. Cranston and Paul recently reprised their roles for the Breaking Bad movie El Camino which followed Jesse in the immediate aftermath of the series finale.
