‘Better Call Saul’ final season: Bryan Cranston ready for reunion


Bryan Cranston is ready for a reunion in the final season of Better Call Saul. The actor said that he’d reprise his iconic character, Walter White, “in a second” if he’s the only one making the decision.

During an interview to promote his new Disney+ movie, The One and Only Ivan, Cranston said that Better Call Saul showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould want him to reprise his Breaking Bad role in this prequel series. However, nothing has happened despite many talks.

“There’s one more season to go and we’ll see what happens!” Cranston said, referring to the final season.

Getting involved in some other way

Cranston also revealed that he’d had discussions of getting involved in Better Call Saul as the director. He said that he gets asked “every single season” to work behind the camera.

“It just didn’t work out because of a commitment to doing a play or doing a movie or something,” Cranston said.

Gilligan, on the other hand, said that he had a great experience working with Cranston as the director of an episode on Breaking Bad, and he would love to do this all over again for Better Call Saul.

The showrunner praised Cranston as a “magnificent director” aside from being an actor with a great range to do comedy and drama.

Another reunion is happening

But if a Better Call Saul reunion is still up in the air, Cranston has another reunion all set. The actor confirmed on Instagram that he and the cast of his old comedy series, Malcolm in the Middle, will be having a special Zoom meet to celebrate the sitcom’s 20 years. It’s happening on Aug. 8.

Before he became Walter White, Cranston played the hilarious dad, Hal, in Malcolm in the Middle from 2000 to 2006. The series also starred Frankie Muniz as Malcolm, the middle child, Christopher Masterson as the oldest son, Francis, and Erik Per Sullivan as the youngest son, Dewey. Jane Kaczmarek played Hal’s wife, Lois.

During its run, Malcolm in the Middle won seven Emmy Awards and a Grammy. Cranston was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at least three times.

Speaking of the Emmy Awards, Better Call Saul is up for Outstanding Drama Series this year, while Giancarlo Esposito received a Supporting Actor nomination. AMC has not yet announced the premiere date of the sixth and final season, which stars Bob Odenkirk as the lawyer Jimmy McGill, a.k.a. Saul. The network renewed Better Call Saul season 6 last Feb. 24.
