After years of dancing around, artful shrugs and increasingly indicate thatthe producers of Better call Saul finally came out and said it: Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will be appearing in the final season of Better call Saul.
This is series producer and co-creator Peter Gould, who confirmed at PaleyFest tonight what he and Vince Gilligan both hinted at last night’s premiere: breaking Bad Stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will both appear in the final episodes of the prequelDebut April 18.
“I don’t want to spoil anything for the audience,” Gould said while speaking before a panel for the show. “BBut I will say the first question we had when we started the show was, ‘Are we going to see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of dodging, I just say yes.”
Not that it’s necessarily a fully resolved question as to how they’ll be worked into Saul Goodman’s story, presumably months, if not years before they met breaking Bad‘s “Better call Saul.” “How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to find that out for yourself, but I have to say that’s one of many things I think you’ll discover this season.”
Series star Bob Odenkirk tried to be even more coy with his inside info, saying, “If you can believe it, there’s more,” but Gould stop him
In confirming the news, Gould put an official stamp on a statement he and Gilligan made last night when they agreed: “It would be a damn shame if the show ended without it [Cranston and Paul] appear, don’t they?”
And really: The nice thing about having a creative team that is built up so a lot of telling goodwill in the last 14 or so years is when they promise that this-probably-inevitable crossover will happen”in a way you’ve never seen before,” it’s shockingly easy to believe them. We’ll just have to wait and see how it develops when the final part of Better call SaulThe sixth season of arrives.
