Saul Goodman&#8217;s <i>Breaking Bad</i> Spinoff Could Be Both a Prequel and Sequel

Better Call Saul, the upcoming Breaking Bad spinoff featuring Walter White’s lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), could be getting an interesting twist.

Speaking in an interview with IGN, Odenkirk explained show creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould were entertaining the idea of making the series a dual prequel/sequel type of show.

“Well, I’ve talked to Vince [Gilligan] and Peter [Gould], who are writing and creating the series, about this and I’ve said that a lot of people do want to see what happens to next to Saul,” Odenkirk said. “So, I don’t know what they’re going to do. I know they’ve talked about prequel, but they’ve also talked to me about sequel, and they’ve also talked to me about a mix of prequel and sequel.”

According to Odenkirk, the writers for the show are set to begin working on episodes in “two or three weeks,” and the format of the show will most likely be “70 percent drama and 30 percent comedy.” No word yet on when fans should be expecting the show to air.
