breaking bad

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan likes the world he and the show’s producers, cast, and writers created so much that he doesn’t want to leave. So he’s just like a lot of viewers, who also want to spend some more time in the show’s slightly tweaked version of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

And so there’s the plan to create a spin-off show, Better Call Saul, which will focus on the lawyer Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk. Like Breaking Bad, the new show will be an hour-long drama, but with heavy comic overtones — in fact, Gilligan says the balance of drama and comedy in this one will be more like 25% to 75%, as opposed to the more drama-heavy original show.

Below, Gilligan explains the approach to making the show, and says that cameos from Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are very likely.

Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston

Breaking Bad finished shooting months ago, which means that while the rest of us have been formulating elaborate theories on how the show would end, the cast and crew have just been sitting back and smiling knowingly at our guesses. But there was a time when they didn’t know what to expect, either.

A recently uploaded video shows stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul preparing to read the “Felina” script over a couple of beers at Cranston’s place. “I’m so unbelievably depressed that this is happening right now!” Paul wails at one point. Check out the video after the jump.

As we promised in “The Ones Who Knock” Kickstarter, I did weekly recaps here for each episode of Breaking Bad. For those of you unfamiliar with my recapping style, it’s less of a straightforward plot summary and more a distillation of the most interesting elements of each week’s episode.  The recaps will spoil everything up through the current episode (S5E16 “Felina”), but won’t spoil any future episodes or even scenes from the “Next Time” segment of the show..because that’s all over now. So hold on to your pork pie hats, because here we go.
