Are Jesse Pinkman and Walter White in Better Call Saul?
As of now, no, Jesse Pinkman and Walter White have not been on Better Call Saul, although it has been confirmed that they will appear at some point soon in Season 6.
Better Call Saul is a prequel spin-off that revolves around protagonist James Morgan “Jimmy” McGill, later known as Saul Goodman. Most of the show takes place several years before the events of Breaking Bad and is not really related in any way to the events of that show until the most recent season. As such, Jesse Pinkman and Walter White do not have Better Call Saul as part of its main cast.
However, for their sixth and final season, the pair are set to make an appearance for a long time in an episode titled “Breaking Bad”. The synopsis of the “Breaking Bad” episode of Better Call Saul, which airs August 1 on AMC and AMC+, reads, “Partners take their venture to new levels.” While the listing doesn’t necessarily confirm their presence, it strongly suggests that it is likely.
Jesse and Walt’s appearance is actually something fans have been waiting for a long time after being teased by series co-creator and showrunner Peter Gould at Palefest in April when he said:
“I don’t want to spoil things for the audience, but I will say that when we started the show our first question was, ‘Are we going to see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of avoiding, I’d just say yes.” Gould, who co-produced Saul with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, said at the time. “How or the circumstances or whatever, you’ll just have to find it for yourself, but I have to say it’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season.”
So there you have it. Jesse Pinkman and Walter White will be on Better Call Saul After the airing of the next episode of the show Breaking Bad. Stay tuned to Twinfinit for more details on the show.
