Variety reports Better Call Saul co-creator Peter Gould confirmed the news on Saturday during a panel at PaleyFest in Los Angeles.
“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 revealed. “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.”
“If you can believe it, there’s more,” Bob Odenkirk teased, with Gould cutting him off before he could spoil too much.
The announcement arrives just a few days after Breaking Bad co-creator Vince Gilligan told Variety on Thursday: “These two worlds cross over in a way that you haven’t seen before, that’s for sure,” Gilligan said. “It would be a damn shame if the show ended without [Cranston and Paul] appearing, would it not?”
Meanwhile, while on the red carpet for Thursday’s premiere, Odenkirk told Variety, “I personally feel that the two shows — ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul’ — are entwined even more than ever in the final season. And I think that’s surprising and cool, and it’s gonna make you want to watch ‘Breaking Bad’ again.”
The sixth and final season of Better Call Saul premieres on April 18 on AMC. Watch the trailer below.
