'Better Call Saul' Creator Says "Worlds Collide" In New Season Of 'Breaking Bad' Prequel
Better Call Saul season 5 premieres this Sunday, February 23! The prequel series was long rumoured to intersect with its predecessor, Breaking Bad. Now, it appears that season 5 could finally see that happen.
Since Better Call Saul debuted in 2015, viewers have waited patiently for the show to meaningfully intersect with Breaking Bad. Season 5 of Better Call Saul premieres this Sunday, and it seems that the show's creator is finally hinting at the crossover!
Better Call Saul is a spin-off prequel to Breaking Bad that focuses on Bob Odenkirk's shady lawyer character, "Saul Goodman" (AKA "Jimmy McGill").
Better Caul Saul season 5 preview rumours
Better Call Saul creator Peter Gould had this to say about season 5:
"This season is where it all becomes one story, much more than it has in the past. You’re going to see characters who you never expected to be in conflict with each other in the same scene. It was very energizing and exciting to watch. This is the season where worlds collide."
Reportedly, this collision will in part come from Jonathan Banks's character, "Mike Ehrmantraut," and Odenkirk's lawyer character. But it is unknown if other major Breaking Bad characters will appear in the new season.
Minor characters were seen across the first four seasons of Better Call Saul, but figures like "Walter White" and "Jesse Pinkman" have yet to make an appearance.
Better Call Saul: A conclusion is coming soon
Better Call Saul will only air for this season and one more in 2021. So viewers are waiting to see when and how the show will meet the events that occurred in Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul also streams on Netflix, usually briefly before a new season begins. Season 4 was added to the platform earlier this month, so viewers have been binging the show prior to its continuation this Sunday.
Season 5 of Better Call Saul premieres on AMC, Sunday, February 23.
