San Diego: Breaking Bad is gone, but Walter White may be coming back to television.

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said on 19 July at Comic-Con that there is an excellent chance that the Bryan Cranston character and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman will be in the show's spin-off Better Call Saul at some point.

Gilligan, Cranston and Paul were joined by many of their fellow Breaking Bad castmates in the 6,500-seat Hall H to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show.

Gilligan said the characters will not appear in season 4 of Better Call Saul when it picks up in August.

"We don't want to jerk folks around," Gilligan said. "But we would be sorely remiss if these characters didn't appear in the show before it ended."

Better Call Saul is a prequel spinoff of Breaking Bad that tracks the rise of a struggling lawyer played by Bob Odenkirk into the go-to attorney for top criminals in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Breaking Bad aired for five seasons on AMC, earning Cranston four outstanding drama actor Emmy Awards for his role as White. Paul won three supporting actor Emmys.

Cranston also said that Breaking Bad will never be a feature film, but Gilligan countered not to rule it out.
