Bryan Cranston’s Walter White will appear in ‘Better Call Saul’, says show creator

Season Two of the 'Breaking Bad' spin-off series will air early next year (2016)

Walter White will almost certainly make an appearance in Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul, the creator of both shows, Vince Gilligan, has revealed.

Better Call Saul, whose first season aired earlier this year, is set six years before Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman was hired by Bryan Cranston’s Walter White as his lawyer. So far Odenkirk’s Saul and Jonathan Banks’ Mike Ehrmantraut are the only main members of the Breaking Bad cast to appear in the spin-off series, but Gilligan insisted that further crossovers are definitely possible.

“It would be great to see Walter White on Better Call Saul,” Gilligan told the New York Daily News. “It would be a shame if the show had its run – hopefully a very long run – and he never appeared.”


Asked when Walter White might appear, Gilligan replied: “I have to be coy. All of the wonderful characters who may eventually appear on Better Call Saul will appear when it is most organic and fitting to the storytelling of Better Caul Saul and also when we can work out scheduling issues with actors. I would love to see that personally.”

Season One of Better Call Saul premiered on AMC in the US from February to April this year, and aired on Netflix in the UK. Season Two will debut in early 2016 and feature 13 episodes – 3 more than Season One.
