Bryan Cranston ‘would love’ to reprise Walter White role from Breaking Bad for final season of Better Call Saul

Actor Bryan Cranston has revealed he ‘would love’ to return as legendary Breaking Bad character Walter White for the final season of spin-off show Better Call Saul.

Cranston played chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin between 2008 and 2013 after which the show’s creator Vince Gilligan launched Better Call Saul, a series which is focused around lawyer Saul Goodman.

Since then, five seasons of the spin-off have been made and Gilligan has confirmed that the upcoming sixth series will be the final one.

And Cranston, who is yet to feature in the show, could not be more up for making a cameo appearance.

"I would be in [Better Call Saul] if Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who are co-executive producers on it, wanted me to be in it,” Cranston told Collider.

"I’d do it in a second. But it hasn’t happened yet, I can tell you, and we’ll see. I don’t know. There’s one more season to go and we’ll see what happens!

"I’ve been asked to direct an episode every single season and it just didn’t work out because of a commitment to doing a play or doing a movie or something, so I wasn’t able to section out the times available.

"But I do love the show. I think it’s a fantastic show."

A number of other Breaking Bad characters have appeared in Better Call Saul including Hank Schrader, Mike Ehrmantraut and Gustavo Fring.

Gilligan is yet to confirm whether White will make an appearance in the final set of episodes.
