‘Breaking Bad’ And ‘Better Call Saul’ Crossover Is Finally Happening
A “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” crossover will finally happen when the show hits the air next month for its fourth season.
“You’re going to see some stuff that’s going to look very familiar in a delightful way.#BetterCallSaul #SDCC,” Peter Gould, writer of “Breaking Bad” and co-creator of “Better Call Saul” tweeted Thursday, following the announcement during a panel discussion at the 2018 Comic-Con event, according to E! News.

How exactly it will happen is still a mystery, but fans who are holding out hope that Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul) will somehow be part of it. They will have to wait a bit longer to find out, though, after show creators shared that neither of the main characters will be reprising their role during the upcoming season. But the two will be making some kind of appearance before the show ends.
“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 of Walter White and the territory of Walter White,” Vince Gilligan co-creator of ‘Better Call Saul’ shared. “I can’t wait for folks to see that.”
“We don’t want to jerk folks around,” Gilligan added. “But we would be sorely remiss if these characters didn’t appear in the show before it ended.”
The series is the prequel spinoff from “Breaking Bad,” featuring Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill before he becomes Saul Goodman — the top lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico, that criminals seek out.
The show takes place before the events that lead White to become the Methking. However, the last three seasons have included scenes that take place after the events of “Breaking Bad.”
