The final season of Better Call Saul is just around the corner and it’s bringing many amazing surprises our way. After years of rumors about their potential return, it’s been officially confirmed that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will reprise their Breaking Bad roles on the spin-off show.
Better Call Saul co-creator Peter Gould has been dodging questions about the duo’s comeback for years, but he finally decided to address them head-on during a recent appearance at PaleyFest.
“Instead of evading, I’ll just say yeah. How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself, but I have to say that’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season,” said Gould.
Co-creator Vince Gilligan echoed his statement while talking with Variety at the Better Call Saul Season 6 premiere, and said it would be “a damn shame if the show ended without [Cranston and Paul] appearing.”
Walter White and Jessie Pinkman won’t be the first Breaking Bad characters to return in Better Call Saul. Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, and Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring are only some of the stars to reprise their roles.
The final season of Better Call Saul will premiere on AMC on April 18 and it will feature 13 episodes.
