As per Executive Producer Peter Gould, Bryan Cranston might join Better Call Saul in Season 6, which is to be the finale season. However, he won’t be back as Walter White.
Vince Gilligan and the showrunners of AMC’s Better Call Saul might give in to the popular demand of bringing Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White in Breaking Bad, in Season 6 of the show. Though the fans demanded to see the duo of Walt and Jesse (Aaron Paul) for once in Better Call Saul after getting to see them together in flashbacks in El Camino, it seems as they won’t get to see them together this time.
- Bryan Cranston to join Better Call Saul Season 6 – but not as Walter White.
- Peter Gould wants Bryan Cranston to join Better Call Saul Season 6 – as a Director.
- Will Bryan Cranston join Better Call Saul as a Director?
- Peter Gould doesn’t feel obliged to have Walt and Jesse in Better Call Saul.
Gould has expressed the wish to bring only Bryan Cranston in the team this time and not Aaron Paul. Now we wonder how Walt alone will be able to pull through this cartel rush around Soul Goodman.
Bryan Cranston to join Better Call Saul Season 6 – but not as Walter White.
From the moment fans discovered that Better Call Saul’s storyline is heading to meet Breaking Bad in its final stage, they have been fantasizing about watching Walter, aka Heisenberg, and Jesse Pinkman together for one more time on screen.
When even after 5 seasons into the show and after the introduction of almost all the key Breaking Bad Characters like Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis), etcetera, fans didn’t get to see Walt and Jesse, the demands begin to grow violent on Twitter and Reddit.
Though the showrunner has hinted at the possibility of Bryan Cranston joining the team of Better Call Saul for Season 6, it’s still not in the way fans wished. Nor the Walter White is going to appear on the screen, neither Jesse, still, Bryan Cranston might be a part of the show. But how?
Peter Gould wants Bryan Cranston to join Better Call Saul Season 6 – as a Director.
Peter Gould, in a recent interview with Collider, expressed his wish to have Bryan Cranston in the team of Better Call Saul Season 6. However, his wish wasn’t quite in line with what fans summoned from the show.
When asked about having Walter and Jesse back for once in Better Call Saul, he said he would prefer more if he could manage Bryan to direct an episode.
He said: “I’d love to have Bryan direct an episode. I got to write an episode [of Breaking Bad] that Bryan directed, and I was on set with him every day, and it was a wonderful experience. He’s a magnificent director. One of the few directors who has a facility for the lightest comedy and the darkest drama. He’s remarkable.”
Will Bryan Cranston join Better Call Saul as a Director?
Most of the Breaking Bad fans might not know but Bryan Cranston directed one of the most critically acclaimed and key episodes of the show i.e. Blood Money from Season 5 Episode 9.
The first episode in the Season 5 Part-B, marked the revelation of Walter White’s Heisenberg identity to Hank Schrader (Dean Norris). “Blood Money”, also worked as a catalyst to Walter White’s downfall and eventually an end by the finale episode in Season 5.
Bryan, as a director, received special critical acclaims for the flash-forward scene in the beginning. The flash-forward scene sees Walter White arriving at his abandoned and fenced-off house, where he sees “Heisenberg” spray-painted on the living room wall.
With such a good record in the same universe, we pretty much think Bryan should direct a couple of episodes in the finale season of Better Call Saul.
Peter Gould doesn’t feel obliged to have Walt and Jesse in Better Call Saul.
Even after popular and aggressive demand from fans, the showrunner said he doesn’t feel obliged to have Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse in Better Call Saul Season 6.
As per Peter, the tiny flashback moment Walter and Jesse shared in El Camino gave a nice memorable closure to their relationship. Thus there’s no need to bring them back even if in the previous timeline.
He said: “I like to think that we don’t have as much of an obligation to have Walt and Jesse back in Better Call Saul because they’re such a great appearance in El Camino But having said that, I would love to have them back.”
With only one season left and too many conflicts to be resolved, we, too, don’t see Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul making an appearance in Better Call Saul Season 6. But only if that happens, we would sell our soul for that one moment.
