Vince Gilligan still working on ‘Breaking Bad’ spinoff 

“Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan is moving “full speed ahead” with plans for a spin-off show based on the sleezeball lawyer Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk.

The last season of “Breaking Bad” starts in August, but let’s face it: Everyone could die. How can you create a show out of characters who have croaked? No problem, Gilligan tells The Wrap -- they can just make the Goodman show a prequel.

That would rule, because it could mean that the wonderful Giancarlo Esposito could return as drug-mogul and chicken-peddler Gus Fring.

Gilligan is still working out the details, and no network -- not even AMC -- has given him the green light. Fingers crossed!
