“Better Call Saul” is the prequel to the incredibly popular “Breaking Bad” series, which introduced the world to Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. And while the current show does not shy away from its roots, audiences will not see a cameo of a beloved characters just for the ratings -- it will need to make sense too.

As two of the most arguably relevant characters from a television series in the past ten years, there is no real wonder why fans of the franchise have been clamouring for a taste of Walter and Jesse in the prequel spinoff “Better Call Saul.” And while the current show does at times reference the original series through commentary or quick cameos, the actual chances of seeing actors Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul back on set together are slim.

Last year, Bob Odenkirk, who plays Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman, had an interview with Huffington Post, and he answered when and if audiences would see Walter on set and if there was any hope at all. “Nil,” he said. “Stop hoping. Stop referencing ‘Breaking Bad.’” He then went on to point out that “Better Call Saul” is a complex show on its own, which offers a “unique and rich experience.”

“I’m on this show and enjoying it,” he said when asked if he would like to see any “Breaking Bad” characters surface. And Odenkirk is arguably right. At the time that “Better Call Saul” is set, Walter would have been a simple chemisty teacher living his quiet life with his wife and son. He would not have had reason to deal with Jimmy or Saul.

But more recent events have given hope that Jesse will be able to make a cameo this upcoming season. In an appearance on “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” Paul teased -- or slipped -- about his work on the spinoff. “God, I hope so,” he answered when asked about being on the show. “Maybe… maybe I already shot the… Yeah, we just -- or THEY Just -- wrapped the last season.”

He then went on to say that he would simply love to be part of the show. The appearance of Jesse in “Better Call Saul” would make more sense as opposed to Walter having a cameo. Jesse was always in trouble, and he was even before Walter started to turn into Heisenberg.

“Better Call Saul” season 3 will begin on April 10 on US network AMC. Australian audiences can stream the episodes on Stan at the same day of its US airing. No specific time has been provided.
