Be a forerunner of breaking BadAMC spinoffs You better call Saul shares many characters with its progenitor, including several who have already appeared in Season 6. While You better call SaulPrimarily centered around its main character, sleazy lawyer Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), the story of is one of the show’s great joys for audiences was reconnecting with some of breaking Badthe best characters. This is especially true for the characters who didn’t make it out of the Breaking Bad finale alive.

Sure, You better call Saul creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould were kind enough to drop a big bombshell ahead of the Season 6 premiere. breaking Bad Main characters Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) will appear in Season 6 in some capacity, but it’s unclear how. For now though, here are all breaking Bad character who is part of You better call Saul season 6.
Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman

Jimmy is also torn over Kim’s plan to take down Howard Hamlin, even though he actually hates the guy. At least for now, he doesn’t know that Lalo Salamanca isn’t really dead.
Although he’s always been a loyal soldier for the right price and a pragmatist by nature, Mike Ehrmantraut is clearly struggling to continue his working relationship with boss Gus Fring, thanks to Gus demanding the deaths of Werner Ziegler and Nacho Varga. . Mike loved and respected both men and did not believe their killings were justified. Still, Mike remains loyal to Gus for the time being.
Gus Fring remains the ruthless drug lord of You better call Saul that he was in breaking Bad, though the prequel provided more of a behind-the-scenes glimpse of his humanity. While there were times when Gus absolutely couldn’t be convinced to change his mind, Mike was able to reason with him at times. His emotional plea for Mike to return to his job and beat the Salamancas was also telling.
Hector Salamanca began You better call Saul still a crime boss, but now resides in the chair he will occupy until the end of his life, thanks to Nacho and Gus. Still, it’s hard to feel sympathy for such a vindictive man, especially after watching him fire helpless shots at Nacho’s corpse.
Leonel & Marco Salamanca
Raised by their uncle Hector Salamanca, twin assassins Leonel and Marco are two of the most feared characters in the breaking Bad universe. Their appearances on You better call Saul were no different, though Nacho managed to temporarily escape them before his death in Season 6.
Saul’s hulking business partner Huell has already paid dividends to Jimmy and Kim for You better call Saul season 6, aiding in their plot to ruin Howard Hamlin. Along the way, Huell shrewdly asked why two paid lawyers kept committing crimes. Jimmy didn’t have much of an answer to offer.
A high-ranking cartel member and close associate of the Salamancas, much of Juan Bolsa’s energy is devoted to keeping the peace between them and Gus. Bolsa almost died during You better call Saul season 6 thanks to a last minute action by Nacho, but the public already knows that he will not survive breaking Bad.
One of breaking BadGus’ most shocking moments saw Gus brutally murder his trusted henchman Victor, apparently for cooking meth without approval. Victor is still alive and working for Gus for You better call Saul season 6, unaware of his harsh fate ahead. With a boss like Gus, it’s best to ask permission.
Tyrus Kitt works alongside Victor as one of Gus’ top henchmen, though he is notoriously much less vocal. Not that it matters, as his towering presence is enough to terrify most. In You better call Saulit performs the same function as in breaking Badwhere he eventually replaces Victor as Gus’ right-hand man.
Francesca Liddy was ‘rescued’ by Jimmy from a life of working at the DMV in You better call Saul, although their professional relationship has been rocky at times, to say the least. She has yet to appear in Season 6, but it is confirmed that she will eventually show up. No wonder, since she works as Saul’s secretary in breaking Bad.
Wendy appeared in breaking Bad as a meth-addicted prostitute that Jesse has repeatedly enlisted to provide rather unconventional assistance. She reappeared in You better call Saul season 6, episode 4 under the employ of Jimmy and Kim, who use it as part of their scam to undermine Howard’s legal career.
The rather crudely named character Spooge appeared on breaking Bad as another local meth addict, and also a would-be ATM thief.

While the biggest question entering You better call Saul Season 6 was the end of Jimmy’s – and Gene’s – story, and that’s how Jesse Pinkman and Walter White will be incorporated into the prequel. Jesse is canonically alive after El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, so he could theoretically appear during Gene’s timeline. He could also meet Saul briefly, since he suggested hiring him to Walt, and knew of his reputation as a “criminal lawyer”.
Unlike Jesse, Walter White is at least supposed to be dead in Gene’s present, unless the craziest of fan theories comes true and he turns out to have survived. breaking Bad‘s final At the same time, if he interacted with Saul before breaking Bad, even briefly, it’s odd that he doesn’t remember him later, and vice versa. Again, maybe You better call Saul season 6 will take an unconventional route to Walt’s cameo, making him appear as some sort of hallucination of a paranoid Gene who may still be terrified of Lalo’s anger.
