Better Call Saul star talks about his hopes for a new spinoff

Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Gus Fring on both Better Call Saul and its parent show, Breaking Bad, said that he is still hoping that his character will get his own show. 

In an interview with EW, the actor talked about his time on both shows and why he still wants Gus to get his own show someday. 

"I've always kept these [Breaking Bad] pillars in mind, even though as an actor I've wanted to learn more about Gus's past life—his life in Chile and all that," he said. "There's a longing in me, and I keep going back to [the spin-off show] Rise of Gus." 

"It fits the puzzle, and we could see where he came from and maybe learn more about who he really is underneath the mask. Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan, who made Better Call Saul, have said the same thing: "It's not over until it's over, and you never know," he said. 

He also said again that the people who make the show should take a break because it can be hard to spend so much time in the world of Breaking Bad. But he hopes Gus will have a show soon. 

"I think they should definitely take a break. It's hard to live in this world for a while. And they are both good at other things that they should also talk about. But I wouldn't mind going back to him someday. "If that's going to happen, I just hope it's before I'm 90," he said. 

Better Call Saul ended in August after six seasons with a sad episode that wrapped up the story of Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman. And as of right now, there has been no official word about any character getting their own show.
