Depending on who you ask, Better call Saul It has arguably transcended its original batch as a mere prequel to breaking bad and become your own impeccably written dramatic beast. Both from a cultural impact and breaking bad had, this spin-off has continued to amaze audiences with each passing year as it explores the origins of the original show’s sleazy lawyer, Saul Goodman. Now that the final season is gearing up for its last hurrah, it looks like things will ramp up to 11 all the time.
Weather Better call Saul itself has been more than capable of supporting its own weight and then some clever storytelling and compelling new characters like Rhea Seehorn’s fascinating and endearing Kim Wexler, there’s a look fans have been waiting for all along.

Better call Saul star Bob Odenkirk, who plays the titular Saul Goodman (real name Jimmy McGill), has just given the tiniest sneak peek at the return of these fan favorites. While speaking to Metro.co.uk at the Tribeca Film Festival, he answered a question about how it felt to have Cranston and Paul back on set for one last appearance. “[It was] so good.

In the meantime, sorry to spoil a series that ended 10 years ago, but later scenes wouldn’t work either since Jesse’s story was resolved in the The way sequel to the movie and Walt is completely dead.
Will there be a flash-forward set during the events of breaking bad? Will the 2 returning characters just get a glimpse of their lives before meth? Only time will tell. But thankfully, there isn’t much time left before fans can finally see how Better call Saul play outside.
