The first season of AMC’s Better Call Saul was a huge success, but given that it’s a prequel to Breaking Bad, fans would love to see stars (besides the ones already involved) of the original series return. That may now become a reality, as Aaron Paul who played Jesse Pinkman has hinted about a possible cameo role for his character in season two.
Asked if he’d feature in the new season of Better Call Saul, Paul told Variety, “Maybe,” with a laugh. “I don’t want to say anything. All I can say is I do know is there are some very exciting surprises coming up in the second season in ‘Better Call Saul.’ So I highly, highly recommend watching the show.”
Paul promised that his return to the show would be satisfying to the show’s fans. “If I were to be involved, I can promise that it would be done in the most beautiful way,” he said, “because there’s no way they’re going to bring Jesse Pinkman back just to bring him back. They’re going to bring him back and the audience is going to be very excited not just to see him, but to see how it all unfolded.”
Paul said he’s long been in talks with executive producer Vince Gilligan about his return. “We’ve been talking about it even before they started shooting the show,” he said. “He asked if I would be open to it, and I said of course. ‘Anything you’re involved with, you don’t even have to send me the material. I’ll just say yes. I owe you my career.’ I have a career because of that man. I would do anything he asked me to do.”
Bob Odenkirk who plays Saul Goodman, also added to the suspense as he told Variety, “The fans are going to go crazy. Wait til you see who you see.”
Better Call Saul Season 2 will premiere on Netflix in the UK on 16th February.
