“You’re going to see Breaking Bad in a very different light.”
Peter Gould, Better Call Saul’s co-creator has given die-hard fans of the show a teaser stating that the series finale will really change how Breaking Bad is perceived and how the two shows are connected.
Events in the Better Call Saul have been tied to Breaking Bad, and Jimmy McGill, under the alias of Saul Goodman, a lawyer and main star in the prequel to Breaking Bad is what the show focuses on.
By the time Better Call Saul calls it a wrap in the upcoming sixth and final season, Peter Gould has admitted that Breaking Bad will be seen in a different way by fans.
“By the time you finish watching Better Call Saul, you’re going to see Breaking Bad in a very different light,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.
“I think we’re going to learn things about the characters in Breaking Bad that we didn’t know. We’re going to learn things about the events of Breaking Bad that we didn’t know.
“And we’re going to learn things about the fates of a lot of these characters that may surprise people or certainly throw them into a different light.”
Peter Gould continued to mention the challenges of writing the final episodes, saying that they were “the devil’s own Rubik’s cube because we know where these characters are and we know kind of where some of them end up”.
Gould then added: “There’s a lot of limitations. There’s a lot of obligations. In some ways, that’s the fun of it, trying to make it all fit together and to make Better Call Saul its own coherent story in itself, and yet also kind of create a frame around Breaking Bad.”
Better Call Saul airs on AMC in the US and Netflix in the UK.
