Vince Gilligan Would Love to See a Saul Goodman ‘Breaking Bad’ Spin-Off (Join the Club)
Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman is one the best characters on television like ever and it seems like Breaking Bad’s creator Vince Gilligan understands that. “I would love to see a Saul Goodman spin-off show when it’s all said and done,” Gilligan told Entertainment Weekly. He continued:
“I think that would present itself pretty nicely, storywise. While Breaking Bad is by design a show that is finite and limited in its scope — it’s a story of transformation that cannot go on forever — I think a Saul Goodman show could have great legs. I love the idea of a lawyer who will do anything to avoid going to court. He’s always going to settle on the courthouse steps.”
Now all Saul needs to do is stay alive. Gilligan explains: “No viewer should breathe a sigh of relief that Saul won’t expire by the end of Breaking Bad.” Adding: “Everything is on the table… Who knows where Breaking Bad will take us?” When asked, Odenkirk agreed: “Saul has got to survive this show first. And if he doesn’t, then maybe it can be done as a prequel.” Or maybe we’ll have Zombie Saul, Attorney At Law, in which the show merges with The Walking Dead. All of these are great ideas!
