It could jump around in time from before and after Breaking Bad…
Speaking to EW, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said the show's new spinoff Better Call Saul might jump around in its timeline.
Gilligan on how the show will deal with being a prequel but also showing the future: "We think, by and large, this show will be a prequel, but the wonderful thing about the fractured chronology we employed on 'Breaking Bad' for many years is the audience will not be thrown by us jumping around in time. So it's possible that we may indeed do that, and we'll see the past and perhaps the future."
Gilligan on familiar faces who might appear on the show: "The character that springs to mind would be Mike (Jonathan Banks)," he admits. "That would be a great deal of fun. I would say the sky's the limit, at least theoretically speaking." He does concede, however, that the high profiles the talented cast of "Breaking Bad' earned during the show's run may make it difficult to snag them for guest spots. "That is a high-class problem that we will have to contend with as we go forward with 'Better Call Saul,' if we do indeed want to touch base with some of these characters."
