Saul Goodman Really Getting That 'Breaking Bad' Spin-Off
Breaking Bad will soon be leaving us with a hole we used to have filled with bleakness and breakfasts, but AMC is thankfully letting us stick around to see what other Albuquerque criminals have decided Saul Goodman is adequate legal counsel. The Goodman spin-off series the cable channel, Sony Television, and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan have long been discussing is moving forward and to be named after the character's slogan, Better Call Saul.
The one-hour series will reportedly follow TV's most endearingly shit-headed lawyer in the days before he became Walter White's stressed-out chore boy, focusing "on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character." Maybe we'll get to see him form his first, primitive Bluetooth earpiece.
Deals aren't yet officially in place, but it's fully expected Bob Odenkirk will work something out to reprise the role (he previously said he'd "do it in a second"). Series writer-producer Peter Gould, whose brain is the park bench ad that conceived the character, is attached to come on as showrunner, while Gilligan "will remain involved" in a lesser capacity. In all senses, this will likely be the only positive aspect to the end of Breaking Bad.
