Bryan Cranston, the sixth and final season of AMC’s critically acclaimed Breaking Bad prequel, starring Bob Odenkirk as a shady lawyer named Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman, will premiere on April 18. It will take place almost two years to the day after the show’s season 5 finale was revealed. The new season will have 13 episodes, three more than the previous season.
Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will appear as extras in Better Call Saul.
According to Variety, Better Caul Saul co-creator Peter Gould has confirmed that Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will guest star in the show’s final season.
Gould made the announcement during a Better Call Saul panel at PaleyFest on Saturday. While he did not reveal when viewers will be able to see Cranston and Paul reprise their iconic roles as Walt and Jesse, he did confirm their appearance. He stated, “I don’t want to give anything away, but the first question we had when we started the show was, ‘Are we going to see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of avoiding, I’ll simply say yes.”
Previously, during an interview with Variety, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould were asked about the appearances of O.G. Stars, Bryan Cranston, and Aaron Paul in Better Call Saul. “These two worlds collide in a way that you’ve never seen before, that’s for sure,” Peter, who didn’t elaborate, said. It would be a shame, according to Gilligan, if the show ended without the appearances of Cranston and Paul.
