‘Breaking Bad’ season 5 spoilers: Vince Gilligan still hoping for ‘Better Call Saul’

SaulWe are slowly starting to reach the end of “Breaking Bad” after five incredible seasons, and with that comes a pair of questions: What is going to happen in the end, and does this mean that we are close to finally seeing that Saul Goodman spin-off happen? This idea featuring Bob Odenkirk’s character was first floated around earlier this year, with the important thing worth emphasizing here being that this really was just an idea that creator Vince Gilligan was pursuing.

With that in mind, it still seems that there is not that much in the way of progress that has been made on this front. Speaking in a new interview with Variety as a means of helping to hype up the show’s August 11 return to TV, Gilligan said that he still “loves” the idea of a “Better Call Saul” show. However, he also still admits to having no idea at all just what this show would look like, how long it would be, or how he would do it.

The reality here is that we don’t see there being much movement on this front until after “Breaking Bad” ends, since saying or doing anything beforehand could end up giving away spoilers about the outcome of the show. The earliest we could see this coming on (if it even gets made) is late next year, and it could be even later than that.
