Hints Of Breaking Bad To Begin Bleeding Into Saul

During Better Call Saul’s first appearance at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon, filling Hall H prior to a Breaking Bad reunion panel, creator Vince Gilligan teased that the overlap between Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad will ramp up in Season 4.

And then duly delivered with this trailer –

The new season will introduce a character that was mentioned but never seen in Gilligan’s first AMC show. At a panel, the Better Call Saul cast revealed that Lalo, who was mentioned by Saul Goodman in the second episode of Breaking Bad‘s second season, will make an appearance in the spin-off show.

Jonathan Banks’ fan-favorite character Mike Ehrmantraut will be letting go of his day job to embrace the enforcer role we’ve always known him to have on Breaking Bad.

Although the season will continue to feature the evolution of Jimmy McGill into Saul Goodman, the series appears to feature even more ties to its mother series, with appearances from Gus Fring and Los Pollos Hermanos, The Cousins, Lydia and Tio Hector Salamanca.

It Wouldn’t Be A Better Call Saul Panel Without Some Breaking Bad Talk

When asked whether or not fans could expect to see Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, Bob Odenkirk gave fans the answer they all wanted to hear.

He also spoke briefly about his sentiments toward Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston.

In addition to Odenkirk and Banks, Better Call Saul stars Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, and Michael Mando and premieres on AMC in August.
