If 'Better call saul' creator Vince Gilligan could do another spinoff, he would like the character of Kim Wexler to have her own show.

The writer-producer was asked about his choice of a possible spin-off during an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald. Vince Gilligan was in the country down under for Australia's Series Mania Festival.

When pressed further about picking Kim Wexler, Vince Gilligan told the news outlet that Jimmy McGill's girlfriend can be "hilariously funny and moving." The character is played by Rhea Seehorn and the "Better Call Saul" showrunner said the actress has such great range.

Because of Seehorn's portrayal, Kim Wexler became such an ingesting personality in the AMC series.

"I want to know more about Kim, I want to see and learn more about her," Vince Gilligan said.

Her current story

Truly, there is more to explore about who Kim is.

In the first season of "Better Call Saul," Kim Wexler's appearances were relatively small. The complexity of her character didn't unravel until the second season when she started hanging out more with Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and then they became more than friends.

In the third season, Kim Wexler's character became essential to the show's plot development, which, as viewers saw, found Jimmy now living it out as Gene, the Cinnabon manager from Nebraska.

While Jimmy/Gene is nearing his "Better Call Saul" to "Breaking Bad" journey, Kim Wexler is somewhere off the border between Kansas and Nebraska to find herself. She has never appeared in any of the seasons of "Breaking Bad" and now fans wonder how far her story goes just before Jimmy assumes his Saul Goodman identity.

Her backstory

It was never shown on "Better Call Saul," but Rhea Seehorn had a backstory for Kim Wexler, as relayed to her by Vince Gilligan to help her play the character. She told Vanity Fair that her Kim was practical in everything -- from her clothes, her manner of speaking, her choices and her actions.

Kim Wexler is also not a drama queen and most of the time, she tempers how she feels. But Kim can also be an obsessive person, especially when it comes to working. She and Jimmy McGill knew each other 10 years before the events of "Better Call Saul,” which makes them really old friends.

The ending

It’s interesting to fans how Vince Gilligan will weave what happens between Kim Wexler and Jimmy/Gene in the final season of "Better Call Saul," which happens in two years' time. Gilligan always said this series will only have solid five seasons and then it will be over.

For viewers, Jimmy/Gene’s fate is largely already determined when “Better Call Saul” ends because that’s when it connects to “Breaking Bad.” The question then for fans and viewers will be – what will happen to Kim?
