Exclusive: Aaron Paul’s Excited For Better Call Saul Reunion, is ‘Happy to Finally Talk About It’

Posted 2022/04/14 62 0


In the age of MCU movies and hush-hush TV secrets, it’s honestly surprising that Better Call Saul co-creator Peter Gould confirmed Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul‘s return to the show’s final season. Paul is a busy man these days, caring for his beautiful four-week-old child while doing press for Westworld season four and the Riley Stearns film Dual, with Beulah Koale and Karen Gillan (playing two versions of herself). He didn’t expect to be doing press about Better Call Saul, though, so even he was pleasantly surprised that Gould let the cat out of the bag regarding his return.

First of all, I am so happy that I can finally talk about it. It’s just like, Breaking Bad and shows like that and Better Call Saul are all shrouded in secrecy and mystery. So I’m happy to finally talk about it. To be honest, I’m a little shocked that I can talk about it. I thought that the plan was to sort of unveil it when the episodes aired, but here we are.

Paul had an Emmy-winning run playing meth dealer and Walter White cohort Jesse Pinkman for five seasons on the landmark television show Breaking Bad, which redefined the TV protagonist and how audiences view antiheroes. Since then, he voiced a beloved character in the dark animated Netflix series, Bojack Horseman, along with headlining several films such as Eye in the Sky.

He continued Pinkman’s character arc into the well-received film El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, and is delighted to revisit the character who helped launch his career into the celebrity stratosphere. “That world is such a beautiful world. I feel so blessed to be a part of the sort of Breaking Bad, now Better Call Saul, universe,” Paul said. Throughout the several seasons of the acclaimed Better Call Saul, a tangential series to the hit AMC show, Paul and his co-star Cranston would eagerly speculate whether they’d be brought back.

Brian and I would talk about it constantly, like, “is it gonna happen?” Because we’re fans of Better Call Saul but like, how is it going to happen? You know, like, how is this going to happen? Because we’re still aging, it’s not like we’re not aging. So I was curious how it’s gonna happen.

After five seasons and many cross-over characters, Paul and Cranston got the call to reappear for the final season, which will surely be an epic reunion that will satisfy fans of both shows. He knew immediately when Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan called him one day at his home in Los Feliz, California.

It was a welcoming, exciting sort of phone call, when that call was put on the books. You know, I knew when Peter and Vince wanted to jump on the line with me, I knew that this was going to be the conversation we were having.

How and in which episodes Paul and Cranston will appear is so far unknown, but Gilligan promises that, “These two worlds cross over in a way that you haven’t seen before, that’s for sure.” The sixth and final season of Better Call Saul premieres on April 18 on AMC
