We’re only one episode into the first half of the final season of Breaking Bad and, if you’re like me, you’re already dreading the end. Vince Gilligan‘s show is so good, so tense and so fun that every episode is like Christmas morning. With meth and murder. Still, every great show has to end and Breaking Bad has eight total episodes this year and then eight total episodes next year before hanging up the lab coat.
The show runner hasn’t decided what he’ll do after that, there’s still lots to do with this show, but one idea he’s floated around is a spin-off centering on Bob Odenkirk‘s sleazy, but smart, lawyer character Saul Goodman.
Read Gilligan’s pitch for the show and more after the jump.
Gilligan spoke to IndieWire at Comic-Con and said that he and Odenkirk have talked about a possible spin-off and though it’s not in any sort of stage of production, he thinks it could work:
I would love to see a Saul Goodman spinoff. I can’t say that it is genuinely in the works at this moment, but certainly Bob Odenkirk and I have talked about it a little bit. I can’t promise that it will ever happen, but I think I personally, as fan number one of this world, meaning the first one to partake of these plot moments and whatnot, I personally would love to tune in and see a good Saul Goodman show.
I like the idea of a lawyer show in which the main lawyer will do anything it takes to stay out of a court of law. He’ll settle on the courthouse steps, whatever it takes to stay out of the courtroom. That would be fun — I would like that.
Kind of Law and Order without any law or order. If Odenkirk is involved, sign me up.
Do you think this show will ever take place?
