“Better Call Saul” season 3 promo had teased earlier that there will be more “Breaking Bad” connection in the forthcoming season. Speculations have been rife that Bryan Cranston (Walter White), Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) and Dean Norris (Hank Schrader) might return in the third chapter of the show. Now, Aaron Paul has also said that he wants to return in the role of Jesse Pinkman.

Fans love Paul in the role of Pinkman and they have been asking him to essay the character again. Paul himself loves the character so much that he is ready to don the role any day. He was recently asked if he would return in “Better Call Saul” season 3 and he said that he would love to do that.

“I was actually just with all of them [the Breaking Bad gang] at the AFI luncheon yesterday. And I did ask that question–when am I gonna come to Albuquerque for my wardrobe fitting? But I don't know! It's still up in the air,” he said.

In “Breaking Bad,” Pinkman was shown indulged in the drug business from the beginning while Walter White was just a teacher initially. Hence, chances are there that Pinkman may be seen in the show’s spinoff prequel. However, nothing can be said to be true as of now.

Furthermore, Paul revealed that he is a huge fan of the show. He said that while filming “Breaking Bad,” he “lived within the show” and felt that the story actually happened to him. Hence, he feels good to also get the back story.

“Max (Maximino Arciniega who plays Domingo "Krazy-8" Molina) is one of my dearest friends, and Vince (Vince Gilligan, creator) let me know that he was making a cameo. He was supposed to die in the pilot, but we all just loved him so much that they brought him back to life", Paul told Esquire.

“Better Call Saul” season 3 is all set to premiere during spring. The show is streamed on Stan in Australia. Meanwhile, fans are eagerly waiting for updates and new teasers as well as traliers.
