The Breaking Bad universe has ended in style for now

Whereas breaking Bad felt like a one-off series with a complete story that unfolded almost flawlessly, the later release of The Caminoa follow-up film starring Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, and You better call Saul, proved that there are more stories to be told, and they can be told in the same high-quality way as the original series. Obviously, with so many other characters appearing over the course of both series, there are still more stories that could possibly be woven from the breaking Bad tapestry at some point.

With Walt and Jesse’s story already wrapped up, Saul now spending the rest of his life behind bars, and the creative team having managed to get away with making two excellent series and a movie, it’s no surprise that creator Vince Gilligan has said he’s in no rush to return to the breaking Bad universe, and that means it’s probably the last we’ve seen of Bob Odenkirk’s Saul. Whether fans can change Gilligan’s mind about another spin-off series with their obvious love for the universe’s rich characters from the many comments on social media remains to be seen, but if not, then the whole breaking Bad story was one that stood out from the crowd as a franchise that delivered on every level.
