There are two types of people in this: people who consider Breaking Bad to be the biggest television show of all-time and idiots. At Breaking Bad‘s peak, no show on television before, during, or since could match it’s plotting, writing, acting, cinematography, and directing.
When Breaking Bad went off the air, many fans were devastated that the world and characters they had grown to love and hate so dearly would be leaving them forever. However, luckily for all entertainment fans, creator Vince Gilligan wasn’t out of work for long, as he almost immediately went into creating Better Call Saul, a prequel/spin-off that’s arguably as enthralling — albeit in different ways — as its predecessor.
Currently in the middle of shooting season four, Gilligan spoke to some media about Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and where one Jesse Pinkman fits in all this.

“You never know if that character may get revisited in the future,” Gilligan hinted. “Anything’s possible.”
Aaron Paul has previously stated his willingness to reprise Jesse on Better Call Saul.”Hopefully I will be involved but I don’t know when that may be,” he told Variety in 2016.
“I’m not going to say anything more. But I’m absolutely open to the idea. Hopefully it happens. I’m all about it.”
Gilligan also touched on what he imagines Jesse’s post-Walter White life is like, saying that he likes to believe Jesse got away:
“I don’t really know in terms of what he should be doing as a career. I just hope he would get away, and meet somebody nice, and not be a criminal anymore and not face those horrors that he faced. I always liked that character. I always had a soft spot for him.”
The fourth season of the Emmy-nominated series is expected to premiere later in 2018.
