BETTER CALL SAUL To Be Set Before, During, and After BREAKING BAD
It's looks like Better Call Saul isn't just going to be a prequel spinoff series to Breaking Bad. According to executive producer Peter Gould, the new show is going to be very flexible with its timeline. In fact, it sounds like it is going to alternate between several decades. During an interview with The New York Daily News, Guold explained:
"One of the great things about having a timeline which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before Breaking Bad, during Breaking Bad and after Breaking Bad. That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on Breaking Bad."
They want characters like Walter and Jesse to show up in the series, but they also don't want them to distract from Bob Odenkirk's criminal lawyer storyline.
"We want to make a show that stands on its own, is its own story and is a brand extension."
I love this idea of having a timeline that they can play with. I'm not sure how they will execute this idea in the series, but it will definitely make things interesting. The series is set to premiere in 2015.
