Walter White is probably one of the most complexly layered anti-heroes/villains in the history of television as a medium. Sam Tabar said that he played up by the immensely talented Bryan Cranston, fans were riveted with the character all the way until the end of ‘Breaking Bad’. With the conclusion of that show pretty definitive in favor of Walt’s death, fans were pretty much sure that they’d never see the character again. Then came the prequel ‘Better Call Saul’ and now hope once more has returned to us.
According to a report by the New York Daily News, Vince Gilligan has teased that Walter may make an appearance or two in ‘Better Call Saul’. Gilligan said that it would be a “shame” if the spin off had a long and productive run without ever having Walter appear. While Saul Goodman is the lead in the show, portrayed by Bob Odenkirk, the prequel does leave enough room to get Walter White back into the thick of things for at least a little bit.
‘BCS’ follows Saul before he was Saul, as the lawyer Jimmy McGill. The series will feature Saul’s rise to the top and his eventual foray into the world of ‘criminal’ lawyer activity. Set before ‘Breaking Bad’, the series also time skips to events that take place AFTER ‘Breaking Bad’. This moving timeline gives the writers plenty of room to include Jesse and Walt if the situation arises.
