Since AMC's Breaking Bad wrapped up, fans of the series have been waiting to see what creator Vince Gilligan does next. CBS has the answer to that with their upcoming new police series Battle Creek, a drama that -- unfortunately -- won't make it onto the schedule until later in the season (presumably midseason).
One thing is for certain: we're all very, very excited for AMC’s upcoming new series, Better Call Saul. Since the day the spin-off was announced, fans of Breaking Bad have gone off the deep-end of excitement. We here at Cinemablend know that it sucks to be out of the loop, so we've compile everything we know about your new favorite TV series thus far. Don't say we never did anything nice for ya!
It’s a tricky thing, bringing characters from a beloved series onto a different show within the same universe. But not once has that worry gone through our heads regarding Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad spin-off series, Better Call Saul. Especially with the news that Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman. Now we’re just thinking about how we're going to lose our ever-loving minds in the best way.
It probably won’t be long before we all start to go through serious Breaking Bad withdrawal. Oh, sure, the series wrapped up months ago, but the satisfaction of a drama well concluded will eventually wear off and those of us who anticipated the series’ return each year will find ourselves reminding ourselves that Breaking Bad isn’t coming back this year.
It’s December, which means another month has wedged itself between us and the end of Breaking Bad. Luckily, the separation from the show has given series creator Vince Gilligan, and soon-to-be showrunner Peter Gould time to talk a bit more in depth about their next venture: the spinoff Better Call Saul. And guess what? There’s heaps to say about its potential future, which is slated to appear on our small screens before the end of 2014. Rejoice: it’s all good!
I've never totally gotten the appeal of the unboxing video-- wouldn't you rather have the toy or game than watch someone else open it on YouTube? But I make an exception for Vince Gilligan under pretty much all circumstances, and that includes this unboxing video for the full Breaking Bad box set, which hits shelves on November 26
So we’re all anticipating the future of AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, yes? (Obviously, or else why would you click this article?) Those of us waiting for another taste of the Albuquerque life are waiting with breath so baited that we’re positively flooded with its hypothetical potential. But any previous notions one might’ve had about Saul’s structure are being called into question at this point, because nobody knows what the series is going to look like.
Season 5 of Community adds another showrunner… to its list of guest stars, that is. Last week we shared the news that Arrested Development showrunner Mitchell Hurwitz had signed on to guest star in the NBC comedy, and this week comes word that Breaking Bad mastermind Vince Gilligan will also be putting in a bit of face-time at Greendale Community College.
The network is currently prepping to air Better Call Saul, a brand new prequel series following the antics of lawyer Saul Goodman. Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan will be involved, and he recently divulged that a bunch of the show’s cast members (besides the obvious Bob Odenkirk) have expressed interest in the new series.
I love the way Gilligan is wearing a jacket that would essentially help him blend like a chameleon into the bland White home, and though he's brought it up elsewhere, his comparison of the end of the series to the end of John Ford's The Searchers really helps understand where Walt's head is when he dives to the ground with Jesse in his arms. And, of course, this has Stephen Colbert singing, and who doesn't need that once in a while?
It has actually been more than 12 hours since the last episode aired, but my head is still reeling a little from all that went down. As it turns out, however, the ending that finally made it onto our television screens last night was not even remotely close to the only ending the writers kicked around.
Just over 48 hours before the series finale, 1800 fans gathered at the Centre for Performing Arts for a Vancouver International Film Festival event called 'One Last Cook: A Special Evening With Breaking Bad Creator Vince Gilligan.' The sold out crowd was treated to a Q & A with the genius behind the Emmy winning drama, moderated by Damon Lindelof, as well as a screening of Gilligan's favorite episode.
Vince Gilligan has enjoyed a lot of creative freedom when putting together his AMC drama Breaking Bad, which is currently wrapping up its fifth and final season at the network. It makes since that the producer would be working to get a new project off of the ground now, and CBS has bought Gilligan’s drama, called Battle Creek and the network is moving straight to series with program.
If there's a down side to watching the nearly-hour-long panel discussion featuring Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, it's that it makes me want to rewatch the entire series and I don't think there are enough hours left between now and Sunday night to do that. Unless I gave up sleeping for a couple of days…
One of the worst parts about anticipating the upcoming return of Breaking Bad - besides the wait, obviously - is knowing that there are just eight episodes left in the series, after which the story of Walter White will be over, for better or worse. But Breaking Bad's conclusion may not be the complete end of the saga.
