Is Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring going to be in season 3 of Better Call Saul?
It’s looking as though the legendary Breaking Bad villain could be making a comeback to our screens as showrunner Peter Gould admits “it’s a good possibility Fring’s gonna play a role in season three”.
Sure, Heisenberg’s badass and all, but Gustavo ‘Gus’ Fring was always the true force to be reckoned with on Breaking Bad. His cold calculation and unsuspecting appearance were what made Gus a truly unique villain and, you gotta admit, his death in season 4 has to go down as one of the most iconic moments of the entire series.
And now it seems as though we may get to see the return of his character in the next series of Better Call Saul!
Breaking Bad fans seemingly exposed the villain’s big comeback when they spotted a secret coded message in the second series of Better Call Saul. The first letter of each episode title in the latest series spelt out F-R-I-N-G-S-B-A-C-K… Does this mean what we think it means?
When asked about the potential appearance, Better Call Saul‘s co-showrunner Peter Gould told Digital Spy: “It’s a good possibility Fring’s gonna play a role in season three”.
Gould continued: “There’s no doubt that Gus Fring is a fascinating character,
“He’s the most brilliant character on Breaking Bad in his own way, although he has a terrible blindspot when it comes to Walter White.”
Gould admitted that he would “love to” work with Giancarlo Esposito again, the actor who played Gus in the show. Alongside Saul, Mike Ehrmantraut is another focal character in the spin off series and so it would make sense to include some backstory on how Mike became Gus’ right-hand man.
Gould said: “It seems tough to imagine that this Mike would ever become the man that we saw on Breaking Bad, so it’ll be interesting to see what changes in Mike… and it would be fascinating to learn more about Gus Fring.”
Gould also warned fans that it would be pointless to search for similar clues in the episode titles of the next season of Better Call Saul:”I don’t know if we’re going to try and fool anybody again!
“We try never to play the same trick twice, so I don’t know if we’ll do another title clue acrostic… or whatever you would call that.”
