I thought this was a leftover April Fool’s joke at first, but it seems that AMC is actually considering making a Breaking Bad spin-off show starring sleaze lawyer extraordinaire, Saul Goodman. It might even be a half hour comedy. What?
Vince Gilligan via Deadline:
“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.”
So….does this mean that Saul will indeed survive to the end of Breaking Bad? Or could this be a prequel. Either way, is this a good idea?
I mean, I’m all for continuing the Breaking Bad universe perhaps, but this seems like an odd way to do it. And would Vince Gilligan make this his next full-fledged project? I feel like his talents would be better used elsewhere.
