Like an inflatable Statue of Liberty mounted atop a strip mall roof, Saul Goodman will stand as an unmoving but squishy monument looking on as time and unlikely meth kingpins pass by. Or something like that is the idea for Better Call Saul, at least.
In a recent interview with NY Daily News, Saul executive producer Peter Gould cleared up the misconception that the upcoming series is merely a prequel to Breaking Bad. As it turns out, the series will span decades, jumping around as dictated by story and possibly when Bryan Cranston is free for a cameo.
"One of the great things about having a time line which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before Breaking Bad, during Breaking Bad, and after Breaking Bad. That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on Breaking Bad," Gould explained.
On that note, it's said "Cranston's participation in the spinoff is sought but is not crucial to show's success." After all, this time-jumping plan allows for more than just the intermittent revival of Walter White. There could instead be an episode about baby Badger. He could climb out of a beanie. It would be cute.
