Are we going to get Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul showing up on Better Call Saul? That’s what show creator Vince Gilligan is teasing. As you may know, Cranston and Paul were both a part of Breaking Bad. They played Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, respectively. These guys cook crystal meth and that show looks at how they got together. It also looks at a lot of their, um, unique situations.

‘Better Call Saul’ Boss Vince Gilligan Hints At Bryan Cranston Season 6 Appearance

Well, Better Call Saul is the prequel to it. We focus on criminal lawyer Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk. This show’s pilot happens six years before Breaking Bad. This Better Call Saul Season 6 Bryan Cranston possible appearance would come in the final season. It consists of 13 episodes and it is split into two halves.

Vince Gilligan did an interview with Variety and talked about having Cranston and Paul show up on Better Call Saul. Gilligan and co-creator Peter Gould attended the Season 6 premiere. They are staying rather quiet on what happens. But Gilligan did tease the possibility of Cranston and Paul showing up. “It would be a damn shame if the show ended without [Cranston and Paul] appearing, would it not? You heard it here first,” Gilligan said. We get more from ScreenRant.

Better Call Saul has been working toward the Breaking Bad timeline with every passing season. This show has brought many of the other series’ characters to blend both worlds together. Since Better Call Saul ended its Season 5, a lot of teasers have been tossed out. They show how events of the final season will play out. Also, if more characters from Breaking Bad will show up.

Cranston, Aaron Paul Did Appear In ‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Film’

Viewers of Better Call Saul have wondered if Walter or Jesse would turn up. Cranston and Paul previously reprised their roles in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Film. That followed Jesse Pinkman after the events of Breaking Bad. Cranston appeared in a flashback scene with Paul. If both would appear again in the prequel, it would be unclear in what capacity since the show loves to jump timelines.

Storylines of Season 6 for Better Call Saul are being kept under wraps. Season 5 ended with cliffhangers and intense developments galore. So, it is expected that Better Call Saul will veer toward ruthlessness and tragedy. After all, the series is moving closer to the Breaking Bad timeline.

Gilligan and Gould did say that both shows will have a crossover in a unique, exhilarating way in the last season of Better Call Saul. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds. The first part of the final season starts on April 18.
