During a recent appearance on the Complex’s Watch Less podcast, actor Giancarlo Esposito talked about what it was felt to portray again his Breaking Bad character Gus Fring, who is the Los Pollos Hermanos owner and drug lord in Albuquerque.
As of the third season of Better Call Saul, Esposito has taken part in the prequel series as Fring. Before the final season of the show, he’s now reflected on what it was like to revisit the role and finally saying goodbye to the character. He said:
“It is very weird because I thought I was done. It wasn’t a ploy for money or anything else when I had that moment in time where I was. Do I really wanna go back and do this again? I think about a lot of things, do I want this character to define my whole career?”
He also mentioned his character, who he first portrayed in the second season of Breaking Bad. He continued:
“The blessing for me with the advent of cable television, 13 episodes… It’s not like the 26 or 22 in network TV where you’re that character all year long every year. But it would be nice to finally release Gus into the ether.”

The web series will premiere July 9th, and it will coincide with a week of special ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul’ programming on AMC.
