Breaking Bad Spinoff: Under Consideration by AMC

by at . Comments

AMC may be getting into the spinoff game.

With ABC Family planning a Pretty Little Liars spinoff ... and The CW a Vampire Diaries spinoff ... and ABC a Once Upon a Time spinoff, Deadline has confirmed today what Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told me at Comic Con last summer:

He and the network are considering a series based on Bob Odenkirk‘s Saul Goodman.

Walt and Saul

Negotiations and plans are in the very early stages, but Gilligan has said he's interested in exploring the idea of a lawyer who does all he can to avoid the courtroom. Due to the actor's background, the show may even be a half-hour comedy.

Sounds intriguing to me, but it leaves me with two questions:

  1. Does this ensure Saul survives the Breaking Bad finale?
  2. Is there any possible title that can be used aside from Heart & Saul?

Please let this series end while it is still good without a spinoff. This leaves me less interested in the 'ending' of Breaking bad.
