Better Call Saul will tell Saul Goodman’s “all new story” while retaining classic Breaking Bad elements, according to Bob Odenkirk.
Teasing the Breaking Bad spinoff ahead of its 2015 premiere, Odenkirk told E!:
“Everything is new to me. I didn’t know any of this story about the character. I’m learning a lot about this guy, and everyone’s going to learn a lot about him because it’s all new story. [Executive producers] Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have brought what everyone loved about Breaking Bad to Better Call Saul, all those cliffhanger moments, the tension, it’s all there and I think the fans are going to be super glad to have that back in their life.”
