Better Call Saul Creators Tease Another Spinoff
Better Call Saul has finally ended, but that does not signify the end of the characters in the series. The creators of the show have teased doing another spinoff.
Better Call Saul has finally ended and brought an end to the universe of Breaking Bad, at least for now. However, the co-creator of Better Call Saul, Peter Gould, has teased the idea of another spinoff happening, this time revolved around a fan-favorite character that didn’t quite get the ending that they should have. Or rather, one that should see their story continue. That character is none other than Kim Wexler. According to Gould, “I’m not going to say that couldn’t happen. It certainly could. I feel like I need to give it a little rest. Certainly, never say never. And I think if you watch this episode, Kim Wexler seems like she’s got more to do, that’s for sure.”
Both Gould and Vince Gilligan are taking much-deserved breaks from writing about this universe, and Gilligan is moving on to pitching a new science fiction show that is somewhat similar to that of The Twilight Zone. However, it seems that both Gould and Gilligan would return to this universe at some point. It’s fantastic that the universe can continue in some manner, at least to Gould, but we also see the value in stopping. We aren’t saying that another series right now wouldn’t be as good as Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, but a third might be a bit too much for everyone. We would like to see how Kim Wexler carries on with her life though. However, no one wants to get oversaturated with stories being told in the same universe from three perspectives.
Breaking Bad went through five seasons before Vince Gilligan decided to revisit that universe with El Camino, which saw what happened to Jesse after he had been imprisoned then set free by Walter White. We also got to see an in-depth look at the life of Saul Goodman aka Jimmy McGill after he also got involved with Walter White after six seasons of Better Call Saul. It truly goes to show how polarizing of a figure that White truly was. Even though we saw things through White’s perspective most of the time, Better Call Saul gave us a bit more of a harrowing look at White from Saul’s perspective. That is just some fantastic writing.
Both stories have now come full circle, and brought justice to all characters, except Kim Wexler. Clearly, she has a lot more stories going on that can be explored. It would be quite fantastic to see things told from her perspective as well. We are not saying that Saul Goodman was anything like Walter White, but Kim could have been seeing the same type of downfall happening in front of her eyes and had no idea how to fix it. Without giving out many spoilers, we will leave our vague description as it is, so everyone can have a chance to see the Better Call Saul series.
For now, Better Call Saul has wrapped up quite nicely. The entire world appreciates Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, as Vince Gilligan created two shows that have been astounding in telling stories of a world that we only knew from one show. Hopefully, we see more of this universe in the future, but we are happy that it will be left alone for some time. Kim’s story might just have to wait a few years
