I read about this yesterday on Deadline.
Breaking Bad is coming into their final 8 episodes this summer. This is one of the most talked about shows in the last few years with millions of die hard fans. Often when a hit show ends, the audience wants more and are given some great or some not so great spin offs.
There are some rumors going on right now that Vince Gilligan is at least somewhat interested in doing a Breaking Bad spinoff with Saul Goodman being the main character.
“I would love to see a Saul Goodman spinoff,” he says. “I can’t say that it is genuinely in the works at this moment, but certainly Bob Odenkirk and I have talked about it a little bit. I can’t promise that it will ever happen, but I think I personally, as fan number one of this world, meaning the first one to partake of these plot moments and whatnot, I personally would love to tune in and see a good Saul Goodman show.” – Vince Gilligan interview on IndieWire
Saul is definitely a fan favorite on Breaking Bad, but I feel it would be difficult to bring that character over with the Breaking Bad fan-base. These fans love this dark and twisted world of Walter White. How would they react to the more goofy world that Saul Goodman would bring in every episode. We definitely aren’t going to want to see him shave his head and start killing people.
