The sadness that is sure to stem from the conclusion of Breaking Bad might not be permanent, given the real possibility that we won’t be completely stripped of the world and characters created by Vince Gilligan. Having hinted that there was a slight possibility that there would be a spinoff focusing on Saul Goodman – played masterfully by Bob Odenkirk – the creator now offers up information in this juicy tidbit that it’s very much a reality. “It’s not a done deal yet, but it’s definitely something we’re full speed ahead on trying to get going.” In addition to that info, Gilligan hasn’t confirmed whether it will be a prequel or sequel to what has taken place on Breaking Bad – thus leaving the door open that favorites in the past like Gustavo Fring and Mike Ehrmantraut could possibly return.

There’s a way to make it a half-hour show and make it a little more—I don’t want to say sitcom-y, but a little more traditionally half-hour comedic. Or there’s a way to do it where it fits more snuggly in with the Breaking Bad universe, in which it’s an hour-long show. As you can imagine with Saul Goodman as a character, a show like that would have to have plenty of humor to it. But also because he works for some pretty scary clientele sometimes, there’d be a bit of drama in it as well. We’re trying to nail that down. As of yet, we haven’t completely figured that out ourselves.
