Okay, so there are a shitload of spinoffs, and many of them have been very successful. This is even better news for the makers of Better Call Saul, which is already greatly anticipated by fans of the late Walter White and his supporting characters.
Speaking of supporting characters, Better Call Saul has just picked up Jonathan Banks, aka fixer Mike Ehrmantraut, whom Walt murdered in season five. How did they do this?

Well for those not yet in the mix, Better Call Saul is billed as a prequel to Breaking Bad, for which the one-hour pilot airs on AMC this coming November. So does that mean we might even meet Walt all over again in later seasons? You never can tell, although it was nice of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul to express their interest in returning.
|And of course, we'll be needing Bob Odenkirk|
Oh dear, Jonathan, better call an ambulance… and then Saul, if you don't die!
In fact, Banks made a name for himself in the 1980s after appearing in the classic Leslie Nielsen comedy Airplane! and the Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder riot Stir Crazy. He also appeared in other many family friendly films and shows such as Gremlins, Walker Texas Ranger, and… err… Linda's Film On Menstruation. Yes, there is a reason he now looks ancient!
Sound off, Fanboys! Are we excited? Take your time with that; you have until next winter, which we don't want to rush into before a few months of warm sunshine. By all means, stay posted, and we'll keep you up to date. Comments below and thanks for reading!
