Better Call Saul, with the end of Season 5, is racing towards its finale in Season 6. However, this doesn’t end Saul Goodman’s journey in the Breaking Bad universe, as Better Call Saul might get a prequel named Slippin’ Jimmy.
When Breaking Bad’s Season 1 came out in 2008, nobody predicted that the show will end up being not one of the greatest, but “the greatest” show of all time. Soon after Breaking Bad’s success, Vince Gilligan, the creator of BB, came out with a prequel “Better Call Saul” that was aimed at exploring the history of Breaking Bad universe while focusing on the rise of Saul Goodman aka Jimmy McGill as a lawyer that criminal calls in need.

To everyone’s astonishment, Better Call Saul followed the same path of brilliant storytelling as Breaking Bad, and it too became one of the best shows to date. However, the success story of Breaking Bad universe might continue further as Better Call Saul might get a prequel about Slippin’ Jimmy.
Is it true? Better Call Saul to get a prequel about Slippin Jimmy?
The mastery of Vince Gilligan over creating the characters that rise from the bottom through the struggle of blood and crime to become the top player in the game has made Breaking Bad universe best of its kind. In Breaking Bad, Walter White was a chemistry teacher who gets fed up with his life and the health and money issues, thus he decides to get in the business of selling Drugs. A couple of seasons letter he was already the great “Heisenberg” and he was no more in danger, but instead, he was the danger.
In Better Call Saul, we see Jimmy McGill, played by Bob Odenkirk, struggling through his Lawyer life to find his place in the Lawyer community. However, deep inside he is a con artist, and always knows the way to get things done no matter what the way is. Jimmy Struggles financially while trying to take care of his ill brother Chuck McGill who’s also one of the partners in the biggest law firm.
Later in the show when Jimmy comes to know that his brother is the main conspirator in keeping him down in the business, he breaks loose and becomes the Saul Goodman we know from Breaking Bad.
Who’s Slippin’ Jimmy?
Throughout the show we get to see the glimpse of Slippin’ Jimmy, the con man Jimmy McGill from the past, working his miracle brain to rip-off the drunkards. We see how great Jimmy was at being the con man, and we see the hints of Slippin’ Jimmy’s miracle brain through the shortcuts Jimmy takes.
In the beginning, we see Jimmy despising and running away from the Slippin’ Jimmy inside him, but later he proudly becomes Slippin’ Jimmy dressed as a lawyer. Everyone knows how great a Better Call Saul prequel about Slippin’ Jimmy can be and will be if made by Vince Gilligan.
Daniel Moncada teases Better Call Saul prequel about Slippin’ Jimmy.
In a recent Instagram post, Daniel Moncada, the actor who plays Leonel Salamanca in Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, has teased a show about Slippin’ Jimmy. The actor posted an unofficial poster in which Bob Odenkirk is seen holding a gun and beside him, we can see Rhea Seehorn, the actress who plays Jimmy’s love interest and law partner Kim Wexler in the show.
The poster had “Slippin’ Jimmy” written in bold over it, and the caption said, “#BetterCallSaul Spin off options?”.
This has got fans wondering if Vince Gilligan is planning some sort of Better Call Saul prequel or spin-off about Slippin’ Jimmy. Now, this could be a prank considering the nature of the post and the look of the poster, but what if it comes out to be true?
