There is a Breaking Bad reunion on the horizon. Walter White, the antihero who evolved from chemistry teacher to a meth kingpin, may come back to us. And relatively soon.

Vince Gilligan, creator of both shows, told the Daily News that Bryan Cranston will play Walter White on the Breaking Bad spin-off/prequel Better Call Saul, but only during the second season.

“I have to be coy,” he said. “It would be a shame if the show had its run — hopefully a very long run — and he never appeared…. All of the wonderful characters who may eventually appear on ‘Better Call Saul’ will appear when it is most organic and fitting to the storytelling of ‘Better Caul Saul’ and also when we can work out scheduling issues with actors,” he said. “I would love to see that personally.”

Bryan Cranston also might direct an episode or two. Better Call Saul is set six years before Saul Goodman meets White and becomes his lawyer, specializing in drug money laundering and bad plans.
