The creators and the viewers – both envision a terrific crossover finale for the Breaking Bad – Better Call Saul storyline. Those prayers were just answered.
The Breaking Bad finale (Felina) was arguably the greatest ever in the history of television. Walter White met his demons and his final fate. Jesse Pinkman struggled to keep some of his virtue and vanished into the horizon closure-less. Fans couldn’t contain the overflow of emotions at the prospect of not having Walter White in their life anymore. But that also came with immense anticipation about Jesse Pinkman’s future which came out as a standalone Breaking Bad movie.
The Breaking Bad finale (Felina) was arguably the greatest ever in the history of television.
Then came the spin-off prequel Better Call Saul centered around the third pivotal character of the series Saul Goodman. While most had rejected the prospect of Better Call Saul reaching the same peaks as Breaking Bad, the creators achieved the impossible.
With the fifth season up for release this year and then sixth season to come in 2021, Better Call Saul too is reaching completion, once again, sparking the debate about the future of the Breaking Bad Universe. The show was unreal and it has created an entire universe. One which shouldn’t die off.
Better Call Saul Season 6 and the future of the Breaking Bad Universe
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan has arguably gifted the world a storyline that could keep us pinned to the edge of our seats for at least a decade more. Gilligan excused himself from being the head of the Better Call Saul team, staying on as an executive producer and transferring the directorial rein to Peter Gould.
Gilligan then got busy with El Camino: A Breaking Bad which gave us some serious satiation by giving Jesse Pinkman a deserved closure. Till then, Gould proved his ingenuity and made Better Call Saul a household name. Now, Gilligan is free and available to join Gould and carve out an unparalleled end to the current phase of the Breaking Bad universe. And end which also ensures that the Universe is left topped up with excitement and curiosity as the studio mulls on what will happen in the Breaking Bad universe phase 2.
The Grand Better Call Saul – Breaking Bad Crossover
If the numerous theories and industry sources are to be believed, the Breaking Bad creators are planning one heck of a crossover finale for Breaking Bad Universe phase 1. Once Better Call Saul wraps up, the finale of the series will be the cue for what will most probably be a short film or limited series that will pull curtains on BB Universe phase 1.
The production will bring back Walter White, Pinkman and all the pivotal characters from Breaking Bad together with Saul Goodman & Company from Better Call Saul in what may be the greatest thing on TV in the 21st century (at least for us Breaking Bad fans). The show will be chaotic and charismatic, overflowing with twists and the darkness spread all around.
Not much more is known about the plot as of now apart from the confirmation that the Breaking Bad – Better Call Saul finale crossover will be the final chapter of the BB Universe phase 1 and will set the course for phase 2. We will see Walter White’s departure from the frame forever, though it is still inconclusive how the makers will revive a dead man. Saul Goodman may also bid adieu to the storyline for good, but Jesse Pinkman is expected to stay. The studio sees a lot of potentials still left in the character played by Aaron Paul and in all probability sees him as central to a successful phase 2 of the Breaking Bad Universe.
