Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman is one the best characters on television like ever and it seems like Breaking Bad’s creator Vince Gilligan understands that. “I would love to see a Saul Goodman spin-off show when it’s all said and done,” Gilligan told Entertainment Weekly. He continued:
“I think that would present itself pretty nicely, storywise. While Breaking Bad is by design a show that is finite and limited in its scope — it’s a story of transformation that cannot go on forever — I think a Saul Goodman show could have great legs. I love the idea of a lawyer who will do anything to avoid going to court. He’s always going to settle on the courthouse steps.”
Now all Saul needs to do is stay alive. Gilligan explains: “No viewer should breathe a sigh of relief that Saul won’t expire by the end of Breaking Bad.” Adding: “Everything is on the table… Who knows where Breaking Bad will take us?” When asked, Odenkirk agreed: “Saul has got to survive this show first. And if he doesn’t, then maybe it can be done as a prequel.” Or maybe we’ll have Zombie Saul, Attorney At Law, in which the show merges with The Walking Dead. All of these are great ideas!
