Bryan Cranston isn't into a 'Breaking Bad' reboot

"We're all really proud of our show and 'Better Call Saul, ' and I think in some ways it's best to leave it alone", Cranston told the audience during the "Breaking Bad" 10-year anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday. While Breaking Bad's main characters Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) won't show up in Better Call Saul Season 4, you might see them and other Breaking Bad characters later down the road.

"If you love "Breaking Bad, ' you're going to get to see that world expand a bit", Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul, said at the panel in San Diego". "The overlap between Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad gets closer and closer", added the creator of the Bryan Cranston-Aaron Paul Emmy victor and co-creator of its prequel of sorts, driving the cavernous Hall H insane with anticipation. "You want the last hill on the rollercoaster to be the scariest of all", Gilligan added.

In addition to Goodman, Better Call Saul already features Breaking Bad characters Gus Fring and Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks). Those who are caught up on the series know that plot-wise, Season 3 ended on a very dark note, but even just visually speaking Season 4 looks to be lacking the brightness and color that accentuated the early seasons of this Breaking Bad spinoff. "I miss the show".

The reunion was surreal for many devoted Breaking Bad fans, who said goodbye to the Emmy award-winning series in 2013. "You want to think back on it favorably and say, 'I don't want to mess with it'".

Meanwhile, Paul's 5-month-old daughter Story Annabelle Paul almost upstaged everyone when she appeared with her proud papa wearing a yellow hazmat suit and respirator mask in honor of the show's 10th anniversary.
