“Better Call Saul” will meet up with “Breaking Bad” with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul set to appear in the final season of the prequel series…
Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are back.
As “Better Call Saul” prepares to return for its sixth and final season on April 18, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have been confirmed to return to reprise their award winning roles from “Breaking Bad” as the prequel series comes to an end.
The news was first confirmed by “Better Call Saul” co-creator Peter Gould during a panel at Paleyfest along with the Twitter account for the show teasing Cranston and Paul’s return.

“I don’t want to spoil things for the audience, but I will say the first question we had when we started the show was, ‘Are we gonna see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of evading, I’ll just say yeah,” Gould said on the panel.
“How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself, but I have to say that’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season.”
Cranston and Paul, who both took home Emmy awards for their performances on “Breaking Bad,” had previously returned to their roles for the sequel film “El Camino” in 2019 that followed the aftermath of the series finale as Jesse Pinkman escaped after surviving a harrowing imprisonment by psycho cook Todd and his Nazi uncle.
Now Cranston will return as Walter White and Paul as Jesse Pinkman as the “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul” prepares to conclude with the timeline finally bumping into the original series.
There’s no word on how exactly Cranston and Paul will play into the final set of episodes for “Better Call Saul,” especially considering the initial encounter for Walt, Jesse and Saul Goodman was already captured on “Breaking Bad” but there’s any number of ways all these characters could be reunited.
If Cranston and Paul returning wasn’t enough, “Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk promised that’s just the tip of the iceberg for what’s coming during the final season.
“If you can believe it, there’s more,” Odenkirk teased.
When “Better Call Saul’ season 5 ended, Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman was complete but his life was made even more complicated after his wife Kim Wexler broke bad herself and decided to scheme right alongside her husband with plans to bring down her former employers at HHM. Meanwhile, Gus Fring made an attempt to snuff out Lalo Salamanca with an orchestrated hit at his home in Mexico but he managed to escape, which means he’ll be gunning for revenge in this final season.
“Better Call Saul” returns on April 18 and don’t forget to follow along with our recaps each and every week through the final episode later this year!
