A few months ago, I wrote that my ideal scenario for Better Call Saul would see it run for three more seasons. One would explore Jimmy McGill’s life after the death of Chuck; one season would revisit the Breaking Bad years and show it from the perspective of Jimmy; and the final season would follow Jimmy as Gene, after the events of Breaking Bad and, ideally, see him reunite with Kim Wexler.

The degree of difficulty would be high — and fitting it around Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul’s schedule would be difficult — but I think it’s imperative to tell Jimmy’s side of the story on Breaking Bad because we need to understand his point of view. We love Jimmy McGill in Breaking Bad, and I think it’s very possible that Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould might be able to explain Jimmy McGill’s motivations in the Breaking Bad years in a way that would allow us to continue to sympathize with the character in spite of the many immoral choices he makes.

That possibility is apparently on the table, according to Bob Odenkirk, who told The Hollywood Reporter that the opportunity to revisit the Breaking Bad years from McGill’s perspective definitely exists:
