Aaron Paul has hinted that he could be set to make an appearance in Season Three of Better Call Saul.
The star, who played Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, suggested his return in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres. You can watch the interview below.
When asked about his appearance in the show, Paul said: “God, I hope so…Maybe I already shot it. We just — or they just — wrapped the [latest] season.”
Gus Fring is also likely to make an appearance in the forthcoming season of the Breaking Bad spin-off.
Ahead of the show’s return, a mock advert surfaced online, advertising chicken chain/undercover drugs operation Los Pollos Hermanos, which featured in Breaking Bad, as well as the character Fring.
He was reportedly set to make an appearance in the Season Two finale but his cameo was cut by show bosses.
Meanwhile, Bryan Cranston has also discussed a possible guest appearance in the show.
Speaking about a possible cameo, Cranston previously said: “I owe [Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator] Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role. If they were to call me and say, ‘We have this idea, we’d like…’ I would say, ‘Yes, you don’t have to finish the pitch. I’m there, what do you want me to do?’ I’ll do whatever they want because I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and storylines and it wouldn’t be something, ‘Oh, isn’t that kind of a stunt casting kind of thing.’ It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I’m all in.”
Better Call Saul premiered in 2015, two years after the end of Breaking Bad. It follows the story of lawyer James “Jimmy” McGill, aka “Saul Goodman”, and is set six years before the start of the original show.
A previous teaser for Better Call Saul Season Three sees Jimmy seemingly behind bars, along with the taglines “Criminal. Lawyer”. You can view that beneath
