'Breaking Bad' villain to appear in new season
Breaking Bad villain Gus Fring returns in a new trailer for spin-off Better Call Saul.
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 third season premieres on April 10, with a new promo video unveiled. It sees Fring asking: “Is there anything I can do for you?”
The star, who played Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, was asked by Ellen DeGeneres about a possible cameo: “God, I hope so…Maybe I already shot it. We just — or they just — wrapped the [latest] season.”
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.”
