"I don't want to spoil things for the audience, but I will say the first question we had when we started the show was, 'Are we gonna see Walt and Jesse on the show?'" Better Call Saul co-creator Peter Gould said at PaleyFest in April, per Variety. "Instead of evading, I'll just say yeah," Gould continued. "How or the circumstances or anything, you'll just have to discover that for yourself, but I have to say that's one of many things that I think you'll discover this season."
