Since the release of Better Call Saul in 2015, it is a major curiosity whether Breaking Bad’s leading actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul would appear in the final season of the series, and there is still a lot of speculation about it.
Although the creators says that Walt and Jesse do not have to appear in Better Call Saul and they have completed their missions at El Camino, they made a super-exciting statement for fans.
During a recent interview with ‘Collider,’ one of the creators of Better Call Saul, Peter Gould, speaks about the possibilities of the reunite for Cranston and Paul and said that he would love to have them back. He even said he would be happy to have Bryan Cranston direct an episode.
“I like to think that we don’t have as much of an obligation to have Walt and Jesse back in Better Call Saul because they’re such a great appearance in El Camino. But having said that, I would love to have them back. I’d love to have Bryan direct an episode. I got to write an episode [of Breaking Bad] that Bryan directed and I was on set with him every day, and it was a wonderful experience. He’s a magnificent director. He’s one of the few directors who has a facility for the lightest comedy and the darkest drama. He’s remarkable.
And Aaron Paul is possibly the happiest human being I’ve ever met, and he makes everybody around him happy. So yeah, I would love to have them back.”
Gould also said that the writers of Better Call Saul were attentive while writing Season 6, and Breaking Bad creator Gilligan returned to BCS writers’ room again after a few seasons later. He stated:
“We didn’t really miss a day, in spite of the pandemic. We went form a Friday in the room together to a Monday on Zoom. So we’re all working, and by the way, Vince hadn’t been in the room for the last few seasons and he’s come back. He is on fire in the room. There are so many great, big ideas that we have and so many wonderful scenes.
Right now we’re pretty close to finishing Episode 4, and we have an idea for everything that you asked about. We have an idea for where we think this is going, we have an idea for what ends all this, we have an idea for characters who may or may not return like Walt and Jesse.
But you don’t want to commit to anything too much because things change, and if the story zigs or zags in a way that makes it impossible for us to have even beloved characters back, we won’t have them back. Our goal is to have a story that makes sense on its own and is not dependent on those references or that.”
