Ever since the announcement, the fans have had a mixed response. While some are enjoying and are super amped to watch the cast reunite, some fans wished for it to be a surprise. Many fans argued that it would’ve best been enjoyed if it was kept secret.
Alongside this, many fans were waiting for this moment since it’s a prequel and they’d eventually catch up to the leads of Breaking Bad.
The co-creator of Better Call Saul, Peter Gould, announced the news at the PaleyFest on Saturday during a panel for the show. He didn’t indulge in specifics but said just enough to get the fans amped up.
According to Variety, he shared, “I don’t want to spoil things for the audience, but I will say the first question we had when we started the show was, ‘Are we gonna see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of evading, I’ll just say yeah,” He further added, “How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself, but I have to say that’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season.”
“If you can believe it, there’s more,” said Odenkirk, just before Gould cut him off.
AMC revived the role of Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron, in Netflix’s 2019 spin-off El Camino tied up the only loose end from the Breaking Bad finale, which aired in 2013. Cranston and Odenkirk appeared as Cameos in El-Camino as well.

In the five-season run of Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston bagged four Emmy awards for his lead role as Walter White, the drug lord. Aaron Paul bagged three Emmy awards for playing his partner Jesse Pinkman.
Ever since the end of Breaking Bad, the two have supported AMC’s efforts of spin-offs and prequels. Cranston expressed that he would play Walter White “in a second.”
He told Gould and the show’s co-creator Vince Gilligan that he was interested to appear in the prequel series. “I would be in it if Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who are co-executive producers on it, wanted me to be in it. I would do it in a second,” Cranston said in 2020. “But it hasn’t happened yet, I can tell you, and we’ll see. I don’t know. There’s one more season to go, and we’ll see what happens.” His wish got fulfilled after all!
Better Call Saul’s final episodes will be released in two parts: the first seven in April and the final six around July 11th, 2022. There is no confirmation about which episodes we’ll get to see the two lead characters in, but we’re all excited to see how AMC has wrapped up the prequel series.
