Breaking Bad was one of the most successful and acclaimed series in recent memory. So, when it was announced that spinoff Better Call Saul was in the works, fans of the original went bananas. One of the most exciting parts of Better Call Saul is the possibility of Breaking Bad characters entering the world. Aaron Paul, who played series lead and fan favorite Jesse Pinkman during Breaking Bad’s five seasons recently spoke to the possibility of Jesse appearing in the prequel show:
Aaron Paul’s statement seems pretty positive toward guest starring on Better Call Saul. There have clearly been conversations regarding Jesse’s upcoming role in the spin-off, and how significant it will be. With show runners promising a season one Breaking Bad character appearing in Better Call Saul, and six crossovers happening last season, I wouldn’t be surprised if they shocked us with Jesse Pinkman’s appearance.
It seems like Aaron Paul is really well informed regarding the plot and plan for Better Call Saul. Paul claims that he’s more than willing to make appearances on Saul when the writing calls for it. Since Breaking Bad helped make Paul’s career, he says he’d be happy to do whatever show runner and creator Vince Gilligan asks of him. When asked if Jesse’s appearance would be this season, Paul tried to remain vague:
This answer feels very close to a yes, right? He tried to swerve the question, but this is only making me more excited for Jesse to become part of Better Call Saul. Maybe they’ll drop the bomb late in the season, like a crazy finale cliffhanger.
Better Call Saul season two premieres February 15th, 2016. Check out the new trailer below.
