'Better Call Saul' season 3 spoilers, news: More 'Breaking Bad' characters coming this season?

(amc.com)Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) appears in the third season of "Better Call Saul" season 3.

A "Breaking Bad" reunion may be in order for "Better Call Saul" season 3, according to the recent statement from lead star Bob Odenkirk.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Odenkirk hinted that more characters from the critically acclaimed crime drama series where "Better Call Saul" was based from will appear in the new season aside from the arrival of Giancarlo Esposito's infamous character Gus Fring.

"Giancarlo is an incredibly sweet, generous actor and incredibly gifted, amazing actor, so it's wonderful to have him around. And it's wonderful to get the story closer to the world of Breaking Bad, and it's not just Giancarlo," the actor who plays the titular character Saul Goodman in the original series and Jimmy McGill in the spin-off stated. "There are other characters from that show that are starting to appear, so that is super-exciting, and it raises our stakes, and it raises our game at Saul."

However, Odenkirk did not specify who among the past "Breaking Bad" characters will be reintroduced in the spin-off series. But in a separate interview with Independent UK, Odenkirk hinted that Gus' return will not just be in passing, since there is a big story that will come with him.

The actor also revealed that fans will also find out how the fast-food chain owner will build his illegal drugs empire. "He doesn't just pass through, he's not just an extraneous character to Saul's story," he also said.

In addition, Odenkirk previously hinted in a separate interview that fans of the series will finally get to see Saul Goodman in "Better Call Saul" for the first time. However, he will not be the same sly, conniving lawyer that fans met in the sixth season of the original series.

AMC will release the premiere episode of "Better Call Saul" season 3 on April 10, Monday, at 10 p.m. EDT.
