Breaking Bad Producer Wants ‘Kim Wexler, Mike Ehrmantraut, Hank Schrader’ Spinoffs

Breaking Bad’s success isn’t about to lessen any time soon. Viewers are now excited that after the end of the beloved spin-off Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad will somehow resume with some other popular character’s spinoff. Along with Bob Odenkirk, the Saul Goodman show also features actors like Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) and Hank Schrader (Dean Norris). Now, as per the show’s creator, there may be more story lines about a certain character. Here are the specifics:

The corrupt but adorably charming lawyer, played by the immensely legendary Bob Odenkirk, originally appeared on television in Breaking Bad before getting his own award-winning spin-off in 2015. Both Mike Ehrmantraut and newbie Kim Wexler also appeared in the spin-off. Although Better Call Saul is a spinoff of the original series, it has received just as much praise. Fans of the TV show Breaking Bad have the opportunity to watch the prequel series’ exploration of some of the show’s popular protagonists’ subplots. Now, ahead of  the second half of the last season, audiences will finally see Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul reprise their roles as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, respectively.

What producer Peter Gould said about other BB spinoffs:

Breaking Bad executive producer Peter Gould hinted to Metro, “Every single one of these characters could have a whole show.  There’s no question. I mean, Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), Mike Ehrmantraut, Hank Schrader. I could see the Hank Shrader show, absolutely. But we’ll just have to see what happens. Right now. I think we’re going to give it a little rest”. Given how long it has been since the beginning of Breaking Bad, all of it makes sense. It seems logical that the franchise’s creators would want a break. Hank was shot and killed in the final season of Breaking Bad, so if the show’s producers wanted to bring him back, it’d have to be in a prequel.

The option is always available for a different process to grow the universe, if Peter and fellow creator Vince Gilligan are on board, according to Dan McDermott, head of entertainment and AMC Studios at AMC Networks. “I can tell you that if I could do anything to encourage Vince and Peter to continue on in this universe, I would do it,” he told Variety. “I think you’d have to ask them, but the door is always open and I long for the day my phone rings and Vince, Peter or our friends at Sony call to say, “Hey, I think we have another show set in this universe'”, he added.
