AMC isn’t ready to let Breaking Bad go.
With the drama heading into its final eight-episode run this summer, the network is exploring the idea of a spinoff centered around Bob Odenkirk‘s shady criminal lawyer Saul Goodman, Deadline reports.
The idea is said to be in the very early stages, with no deals in place in front of or behind the camera. But if the project — which is being conceived as a comedy — were to get a green light, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan would steer the offshoot alongside the show’s writer-producer Peter Gould.
Gilligan floated the idea of a Saul-centric series at the WGA Awards earlier this year, telling TVLine, “In my mind’s eye, I would like to see a Saul Goodman spin-off. I would love that. So maybe we’ll try to get that going.”
