Breaking Bad fans will soon have to say goodbye to badass Walter White () and his drug empire as the final eight episodes of the series will air and bring the series to its inevitable conclusion this summer.
But does this mean fans must bid the show adieu completely? Not so fast, says show creator . Last summer, Gilligan said that, he "would love" to see a spinoff:
I would love to see a Saul Goodman spinoff. I can't say that it is genuinely in the works at this moment, but certainly Bob Odenkirk and I have talked about it a little bit.
I like the idea of a lawyer show in which the main lawyer will do anything it takes to stay out of a court of law. He’ll settle on the courthouse steps, whatever it takes to stay out of the courtroom. That would be fun -- I would like that.
Now, Deadline reveals that may not be so farfetched, after all, with Sony TV reportedly exploring the possibility of a Saul spinoff. At the moment, the project is still very much in the feeling-out stages, and it appears as if it's simply a concept that Sony feels is worth exploring. Let me point, lest you get too excited, this stage is where a good portion of potential television and film projects are killed before they even begin.
Still, with so many spinoffs being mediocre-to-terrible, it would be interesting to see something done well. The concept is potentially intriguing, and if the same crew was involved it would presumably be a quality project.
