Better Call Saul creators reveal which Breaking Bad characters could appear in new series

Sorry, but neither Walt nor Jesse will grace Better Call Saul's first season.

Besides those two Breaking Bad characters, though? "Everything else is on the table," creator Peter Gould said.

Gould, along with co-creator Vince Gilligan, took questions at the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday. AMC's new series, which is a prequel to Breaking Bad and premieres on Feb. 8, focuses on slippery lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).

"He's a different guy," Odenkirk said. "(The writers) have a great time creating highly conflicting ethical situations where the character has to navigate a complex and ever-changing prism of ethical choices."

Could those choices eventually involve characters with which Breaking Bad fans are already well-familiar?

"Any of these characters could conceivably show up in future seasons," Gilligan said. "But the intention is it will feel proper and organic, because if it feels like a stunt, then something has gone terribly wrong in the writers' room."
