Although Better Call Saul’s story in the Breaking Bad world came to a decisive conclusion, there are still arrangements underway for it to go on with other spin-offs.
The Breaking Bad universe appeared to come to an end with Better Call Saul, but there are a tonne of spin-off concepts that allow for a continuation. Unimaginably, the legal series broadened the Breaking Bad universe. Even though Jimmy McGill’s story was concluded, certain story arcs were left unfinished, and the backgrounds of several characters were completely revealed.
There are a lot of intriguing storylines that may be told inside the Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul franchises because of how rich the worlds are.
It was evident from Better Call Saul’s constant inventiveness that it was the appropriate decision to take the Breaking Bad series farther. Other possible spinoffs, like Better Call Saul, have the ability to deftly blend the characters and mythos of Breaking Bad with fresh and intriguing narratives. The possible spinoffs are listed below;
1. The life story of Jesse Pinkman after breaking bad.
Jesse (Aaron Paul) was rightfully portrayed as the hero in Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie since he didn’t deserve what had happened to him.
If Walter hadn’t been manipulating him all the time, he would have been able to escape the life of crime (Bryan Cranston). His tale has now closed twice in the series: first in Breaking Bad, when he managed to escape Jack’s compound, and second in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, where he took on a new identity and relocated to Alaska. However, that doesn’t imply there can’t be more to his narrative.
Since Jesse is obviously happy with his happy ending at the end of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Story, another spinoff featuring him might jeopardise it. But there’s a really simple way that Jesse’s story may go on organically without jeopardising any of his past resolutions.
It wouldn’t be thrilling to watch a series about Jesse building wooden boxes, but there is one item that ties him to his previous existence in Albuquerque: the letter he sent to Brock, Andrea’s kid from a previous relationship. Jesse harboured feelings of guilt over Andrea’s passing and grew close to Brock. In an effort to get closure and answers, Brock would try to track down Jesse. He might even seek retribution.
2. The life of Gus before Better Call Saul.
Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), who plays a major role in both Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, has made more appearances than virtually any other character in the universe. Strangely enough, though, almost little is known about his childhood, personal history, or how he got to be the dreaded drug lord he portrays in both series.
What’s even more astonishing is that spectators didn’t find out the first and only detail regarding his personal life until his very last appearance. “Fun & Games,” the ninth episode of Better Call Saul season 6, virtually proved that Gus is gay. In one scenario, he befriends a wine bar employee, but he leaves without saying goodbye because he knows he can’t have a relationship in his line of work.
Another prequel to Breaking Bad that occurs prior to Better Call Saul’s eventual unveiling of additional details on the enigmatic character. To be honest, though, going in this path would run the risk of humanising him—a mistake that even Better Call Saul verged on.
While he’s having emotional difficulties in a wine bar, it’s easy to forget that he’s a nasty drug lord who cuts people’s throats. Even yet, it would be fascinating to learn how he became such a monster and how he established such a vast empire. The riddle of how he managed to get all the equipment into the superlab on Breaking Bad might be resolved if the spinoff followed the same prequel/sequel structure as Better Call Saul.
In one of the most well-liked episodes of Better Call Saul, “Five-O” (season 1, episode 6) primarily takes place in the past, with Jonathan Banks’ character Mike Ehrmantraut exacting revenge on two police officers for the death of his son.
This was the closest viewers were going to get to witness Mike as the gruff, dishonest Philadelphia police officer that the show has repeatedly hinted at. However, a prequel to Better Call Saul about Mike that takes place decades in the past may properly explore and develop that part of the character.
3. Mike’s life as a Philly Cop back in the early 70’s.
The franchise’s most welcome sequel to Better Call Saul would be a spinoff prequel about Mike since it would have a completely new tone from anything that has come before it. It would have a very different aesthetic if it were situated in a big city rather than the Albuquerque desert.
Better Call Saul was set in the early 2000s, but as Mike is in his early 60s in the show, a spinoff on him would also have a suitable time setting, maybe in the early 1970s. Since the new character would need to be much younger than the one from Better Call Saul, it would also be the first main character in the series to be recast.
4. Jimmy’s survival in prison.
Like with Jesse, Jimmy’s tale has concluded with Better Call Saul, but it can go on in other ways. Given Jimmy’s 86-year sentence, a prison drama series in the Breaking Bad universe would make sense.
To be honest, a jail drama on Jimmy’s incarceration doesn’t even need to be a distinct programme. Better Call Saul may still remain the name of the season, but it may be a legacy installment that airs ten or more years after season six, a la Twin Peaks: The Return or Prison Break.
Even if Better Call Saul’s finale was ideal, a seventh season might still work provided there is enough time between episodes before they return.
The episode “Saul’s Gone” from Better Call Saul season 6 hinted to Jimmy’s lifelong imprisonment, but it’s possible that everything could work out okay because the individuals he shielded from harm will look out for him inside. Alternatively, Heisenberg’s former friends might be imprisoned with him, which would make for some awkward reunions.
