    For more than ten years Vince Gilligan was at home in the universe of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul”. After the chemistry teacher Walter White, who becomes a drug lord, followed the prequel to the windy lawyer Saul Goodman. Now the new project of the series maker is in the starting blocks: Apple TV + has ordered two seasons of a new series from Gilligan. Rhea Seehorn, who starred in Better Call Saul as attorney Kim Wexler, stars.

    After two series about immoral antiheroes, Gilligan wants to move in a different direction this time: “After 15 years I thought it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes,” he shared. “And who is more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn? It’s high time she got her own show and I’m lucky to continue working with her.”

    The newly minted leading actress Seehorn was enthusiastic about the role on Twitter. “I’m in seventh heaven I’m so excited,” she wrote. “Words cannot express that. My heart is exploding!” Seehorn was nominated for an Emmy in 2022 for her role as Kim Wexler.

    Nothing official is known about the content of the series yet. As Deadline.com reported, but is said to be moving away from the world of drugs and crime in which “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” are set. Instead, it will probably be a mystery series with light science fiction elements. This is Gilligan’s return to his roots: He got his start in television on the X-Files screenwriting team.

    Better Call Saul concluded in August 2022 with the sixth season finale. Gilligan also recently directed the film El Camino, a mini-sequel that chronicled what happened after the finale of Breaking Bad with fan favorite Jesse Pinkman.
