"Better Call Saul" Will Venture Further Into "Breaking Bad" Storylines This Season

Better Call Saul, the spin-f prequel to Breaking Bad, is returning for a fourth season soon and co-creator Vince Gilligan couldn’t be more excited. Gilligan recently sat down with EW and revealed that the scope  Better Call Saul is getting much bigger, and that Breaking Bad plots will start to run adjacent with actions happening in the prequel series. “We have a subplot that very squarely gets into Breaking Bad territory and brings us into the world — or at least points us on a path toward the world Walter White and the territory Walter White,” Gilligan stated. “I can’t wait for folks to see that.” He continued on to note how he views the bigger picture. “I picture two giant circles moving together, converging into an ever-largening Venn diagram, and that Venn diagram represents the overlap between Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul,” Gilligan said. “That area overlap is getting larger and larger.”

He also reveals that he would love to bring Walter White in, but needs a good place to do it. I think we can all agree that a simple cameo wouldn’t cut it. “I]t wouldn’t feel as satisfying if it was just a cameo or an Alfred Hitchcock walkthrough,” he explained. “I think we’ve waited long enough. We damn well better have a good reason for them to show up.”
