Vince Gilligan has spent the last 14 years of his career in and around a fictional meth-y Albuquerque, New Mexico version: First with breaking Badthe series that transformed him from a respected one X files Alumnus to one of television’s hitmakers and then with Better call Saul and bb sequel movie El Caminowhich proved that he was much more than just the first to recognize it that the father from Malcolm in the middle could really act.
(And yes, it’s worth noting here that Gilligan is technically a year off from the Poorly-Iverse in 2015 when he was co-creating a show called Battle Creek for CBS. you caught us Battle Creek Stans. Enjoy your hollow crowns.)
All in all, Gilligan has made it clear that it’s time to maybe take a break from this whole business of “beautiful views of the Southwest marred by the meth trade.” note to meeting at the the premiere of the last part from Better call Saul last night that we shouldn’t expect him to dive into one third party TV series set in this particular criminal universe.
To be clear, Gilligan hasn’t really told people what he’s working on — including his wife, as he revealed on the red carpet last night. But “it’s something very different.” (It’s probably not a remake of either Trapper John, MDalthough Gilligan made a joke about his research figuring out how to outsource breaking Bad to the Saul.)
Gilligan’s producing partner Peter Gould agreed, despite the obvious appeal of a Kim Wexler standalone show, which would have been better be technically feasible because they better not fucking kill Kim Wexler: “I love these characters, I love this world,” Gould said. “Maybe one day, but personally I’m going to take a little break from this world and try something different just to prove I can do it.”
First, of course, they have to finish Saulreturning on April 18 for the latter half of its final season. Gilligan hinted that some long-awaited cameos might be in the works: When asked if Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul could finally appear in the prequel’s narrative, he replied, “It would be a damn shame if the show ended without her appear, don’t they?”
