It wasn’t any secret that Giancarlo Esposito’s Breaking Bad-die would resurface in Better Call Saul Season 3, but one tidbit has at last been unveiled: the April premiere date! See for yourself, along with a new clip from the prequel drama’s third year, and piping fresh details on Gus’ return, straight from Los Pollos Hermanos.
Our first formal look at Better Call Saul Season 3 footage teased that Jimmy McGill would find himself in some hot water, but he may have more to fear from hot oil. Yes, the Chicken Man may at last have been confirmed to return, as suggested by a round of new teasers from the Breaking Bad prequel’s third season.
Trump cabinet picks have been bad, but not Breaking Bad, at least until now. The SNL cold open for John Cena’s debut hour got Bryan Cranston reprising his iconic role as Walter White, tapped to head the DEA (what else) in the new administration.
Invested as we are in learning Jimmy McGill’s Better Call Saul past, few can deny the curiosity of our brief trips in to the post-Breaking Bad future with “Gene.” It looks like we’ll be spending a little more time in the aftermath of Walter White’s demise, according to the first Season 3 photos, along with a look at the McGill brothers’ war.
It’s been some time since Better Call Saul closed out Season 2 with what seemed to be explicit reference to the biggest Breaking Bad-die, and Season 3 hasn’t started slippin’ teases of Jimmy’s return just yet. That said, creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are all but confirming that Breaking Bad fans will have “several” familiar reasons to check out next season.
Chances are, you’ve heard of a few odd easter eggs linking The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, even going so far as to posit that the zombie apocalypse occurred shortly after the events of Breaking Bad’s final season. If not, allow Netflix to literally draw those connections for you, while we purchase supplies for a giant cork board.
The second season of AMC’s Better Call Saul put the devil in the details to slyly confirm one major Breaking Bad return, but how many should we expect for Season 3? At least one more, according to Bryan Cranston, but perhaps not who you’re thinking.
We’ve seen AMC series drop a number of easter eggs between shows like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead, and Preacher seems to be getting in on the fun as well. Penultimate Season 1 episode “Finish the Song” made a notable connection with a famous Breaking Bad scene, but what does it mean for fan theories that the shows share a universe?
As well as Better Call Saul stands on its own from Breaking Bad, the fan in all of us can’t help picturing Bryan Cranston popping up as a pre-lung cancer Walter White. Cranston himself is no stranger to the possibility, but might instead return behind the camera, if not for one very specific hangup about the series.
In the wrong hands, AMC’s ‘Preacher’ could have been a bloated mess.
