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.
Shortly after Better Call Saul drew its second season to a close by Monday’s “Klick” finale, creator Vince Gilligan revealed both a Breaking Bad cameo destined for Season 3, and one that very nearly took place in the season finale itself. Now, said Bad alum explains their involvement in the scrapped appearance, as well as the potential to return next season.
This week’s Better Call Saul Season 2 finale seemed overwhelmingly to point toward the return of a Breaking Bad guy favorite, something creator Vince Gilligan acknowledged fans had deduced for themselves. That said, it seems another member of Walter White’s world nearly made the cut into Better Call Saul Season 2, until Gilligan decided it would pull focus.
The age of crowd-sourcing TV mysteries has put some fans further ahead of the curve than most showrunners would like, something Better Call Saul bosses Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould apparently learned the hard way. A Season 2 finale easter egg has seemingly been confirmed, but will it lead to the full-on return of Gus Fring in Better Call Saul Season 3?
