The final season of ‘Breaking Bad’ premiered on August 11, and while the hit AMC series is quickly coming to a close, Bob Odenkirk told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that his character, Saul Goodman, may continue to move forward in a spinoff series. Keep reading for all the details!
We can hardly fathom the idea that Breaking Bad will come to a close on September 29. However, while we’ll have no choice but to say goodbye to characters such as Walt (Bryan Cranston), Skyler (Anna Gunn) and Hank (Dean Norris), whom we’ve grown to love, there are others who may live on in the spinoff series that creator Vince Gilligan is hoping will come to fruition.
‘Breaking Bad’ Spinoff Details — Bob Odenkirk & Vince Gilligan Reveal Spoilers
On the carpet, before the final season’s premiere at Lincoln Center in NYC on July 31, Bob Odenkirk (who plays Saul Goodman) told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that he’d “love” to star in the potential spinoff series.
If I made people happy and they want to see [Saul Goodman] more, I’d love [to star in a spinoff]. It’s all up to Vince, who created the character. So, for me, I approach this job as an actor. It was a challenge. But if a spinoff were to happen, it’s all in his hands to create it and I will learn and do what he wants that character to do.
So who else could we expect to see on the potential spinoff series? Bob had some great ideas!
Everybody loves Jesse [Pinkman] (Aaron Paul). I love that kid. Um, I wouldn’t mind this guy (he grabs RJ Mitte, who plays Walter White, Jr.). He’s such a sweet guy. I love his character in the show.
Then, Bob said something rather shocking! It seems like he’s hoping that Vince will bring a character back from the dead.

Um, who’s the guy that punches a lot and he’s always bloody? Tuco (Raymond Cruz)! He’s fun to watch. Isn’t he great? That scene where he’s punching the guy in the throat. Just goes to show — you don’t fight with a meth head.
In a perfect world, Bob, we’d bring a lot of characters back, including Jane (Krysten Ritter) — rest in peace.
When Vince was asked who he’d like to see on the spinoff series, he said, “It’s sort of too soon to tell. I think we’ll start with [Bob] and see what happens. ”
Well, at least there may be hope for Tuco and Jane! After all, no one ever said the spinoff wouldn’t be a prequel series.
Sadly, Vince says the potential show isn’t attached to either a production company or network at this time. But we have a feeling that’ll change very soon.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Would you watch a Breaking Bad spinoff?
