‘Better Call Saul’ teases return of three ‘Breaking Bad’ villains

Better Call Saul might not have captured the attention of the masses in quite the same way as its big brother Breaking Bad, but in its own, way the cult spin-off has rivalled it for many in terms of quality. 

Ahead of the final season, a Tweet from the show’s official account has teased the return with three of Breaking Bad’s most iconic characters. The message displayed a picture of Juárez drug cartel characters Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton), Don Eladio Vuente (Steven Bauer) and Juan Bolsa (Javier Grajeda) sat on outdoor furniture, grinning, with the caption: “Just three cool, terrifying dudes.”

Although it is not confirmed, the fact that the three actors seem to be sat on a Better Call Saul set certainly hints at the potential return to their roles for the spin-off. 

The beloved series is set to conclude with a final 13-episode season due in early 2022.

Speaking to Collider earlier this year, the shows lead star Bob Odenkirk, announced: “I’m finding out script by script [how the season goes]. I’m told that the wheels come off in season six and it explodes in a million directions. That sounds to me like there’s a fair amount of violence, but I don’t know for a fact,”

Later adding, “We have a discussion where my point of view is that Walter White became an angry, broken version of himself. I wonder if it would be possible to write – because I like the guy – I wonder if it would be possible to give Jimmy McGill a better ending, a better place to end in than he started in. I don’t know if they’re going to do that though.”
