When it comes to the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, it seems that audiences either passionately love or viciously hate the subject. So, the following report can really be considering good or bad news, depending on where you fall on that very short spectrum. According to Uproxx, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan is already having his doubts about the series, which he revealed to The Hollywood Reporter last week. From Uproxx:
“Honestly, I don’t know yet,” he said. “If it’s AfterMASH rather than Frasier, it won’t be for lack of hard work and wishful thinking and a lot of smart people doing their best, but you just don’t know until the world takes it.” He also noted with honesty that “I am worried that … it may turn out that this was a mistake,” but, he said, there’s not enough time to fixate on that.
We kid, we kid—it actually just sounds like Gilligan is nervous about launching a brand new show that's entirely based off of a successful drama that just ended its run, and that's totally normal, because Breaking Bad has some passionate fans. The good news is that filming is officially underway (as indicated by this photo from the set in Albuquerque), Bob Odenkirk is a genius actor, and Jonathan Banks is going to be a series regular. Hope is still alive for this show!
