As many fans would expect, "Better call saul" as it is now, could not run forever. Being a prequel to the hit series "Breaking Bad," there is only as much story the creator could come up with centered in the six years before Saul Goodman's life in the beginning of "Breaking Bad."

Vince Gilligan, the creator of the two series, talked about the finite story limitations of "Better Call Saul" in an interview with Den of Geek. He could not give an estimated number of episodes they can still make for the prequel of "Breaking Bad," but he admitted that it would eventually reach the start of the "Breaking Bad" story.

Post-'Breaking Bad' stories on the horizon

But fans would surely be delighted to know that the story of Saul Goodman's life post-"Breaking Bad" would continue should "Better Call Saul" ran out of prequel stories. Gilligan said that "Breaking Bad" doesn't have the same finite limitations as "Better Call Saul," which is now in Season 3. He believes that there's still much to tell in the post-"Breaking Bad" world and that is an opportunity for the writers to continue working on the show. Covering a "Breaking Bad" epilogue is not yet official, but it's a huge possibility.

'Better Call Saul' keeps getting better

While the end for "Better Call Saul" is definitely in sight, fans could just sit back and enjoy the current season for now.

The show just keeps getting better, which is an evidence that its creators, Gilligan and Peter Gould, put a lot of careful thought on how to tell Jimmy McGill's life and to make the most out of the backstory.

But if you're one of those who are less patient with the deliberately slow pace, brace yourself as things are about to change.

Lead star Bob Odenkirk told NZ Herald News's Karl Puschmann that it's a way for Gilligan and Gould to set up the dominoes. "Better Call Saul" Season 3 would soon bring out surprises and actions would start to pick up.

What's next
