Breaking Bad’s wonderful run has come to an end and a lot of people were sad to see it go, while excited for the finale at the same time. It has been announced that Breaking Bad’s Vince Gilligan is interested in doing a Breaking Bad spin-off around the Saul Goodman character played by Bob Odenkirk.
Originally they thought about doing it as a 30-minute sitcom, but ultimately they decided to do it as a one-hour sitcom.
“We’re both one-hour drama guys,” Gilligan said, via the Hollywood Reporter.
In talking about shooting the show the way Breaking Bad was filmed, Gilligan made an interesting comment. See if you can catch it.
“So we figured, ‘Why not shoot Saul in the same way?’ Let’s shoot it in Albuquerque, let’s get as much of the crew back together as possible, and let’s do it the way we did it before so that it will be of a piece with that pre-existing fictional universe that we had so much fun creating.”
As much of the crew back together? That could mean the technical crew, of course, but it could mean members of the Breaking Bad cast. Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White, and Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman, have both expressed interest in making appearances.
“Personally, I’d have a hard time resisting putting all these guys in for a cameo or two every now and then,” Gilligan says.
Now the show could include Walter White and Jesse Pinkman because the spin-off is a prequel, so it takes place before the Breaking Bad show.
