Is AMC looking at a 'Breaking Bad' spinoff?


Breaking Bad, one of AMC's biggest hit series, focuses on the life and times of Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston), an Albuquerque, New Mexico high school chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin (is kingpin too strong a word?) who starts off trying to raise enough money to support his family after his inevitable death of inoperable lung cancer. Where once Walter's aim was admirable (arguably), he has slowly turned more and more villanous as the series has gone along.

Now, as the series prepares to end this summer with the second half of its fifth and final season, fans are slowly letting the show go. But maybe, just maybe, their loss will not be complete.

A new report says that Sony TV, the producer of the series, and AMC are looking at keeping the franchise alive with a spinoff that would center on criminal lawyer Saul Goodman, who is played by Mr. Show's Bob Odenkirk. No deals have been signed as of now, as the discussions are apparently in the beginning places, but series creator Vince Gilligan and writer-producer Peter Gould are apparently on board with the idea. 

Saul brings a comedic element to the series and is known for his tagline of "Better Call Saul".

The spinoff, if it goes forward, would likely be a comedy.

Would you be interested in that?

No I wouldnt be interested... A spin-off with Jesse Pinkman is a better idea, that is if he survives the final season and decides to get back in the blue candy business since Walter White will not survive the final season. Lets face it what better ending is there than Walter dying in the final episode, EPIC ending to EPIC TV show
