It was only about a week ago that Breaking Bad star Bob Odenkirk talked about the possibility of a prequel spin-off titled Better Call Saul. Now word has it that AMC and Sony Pictures Television have agreed on a spin-off prequel series, conceived of by show runner Vince Gilligan and character co-creator Peter Gould, that will tell the tales of sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman before he ever crossed paths with Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). Plans are for an hour-long prequel pilot with an expected series order from AMC. Now, the elephant in the room is that since this is a prequel series … what’s going to happen to Saul in the final few episodes of Breaking Bad? Fingers crossed that Goodman makes it out alive.
