So far, no, Jesse Pinkman and Walter White have not been in Better Call Saul, though it has been confirmed they will show up at some point soon in Season 6.

Better call Saul is a prequel spin-off, which revolves around protagonist James Morgan “Jimmy” McGill, later known as Saul Goodman. Much of the show takes place many years before the events in Breaking Bad and is not really related in any way to the events in that show until the most recent season. As such, Jesse Pinkman and Walter White are not in Better Call Saul as part of its main cast.

However, for its sixth and final season, the pair are set to make an appearance for the very time in an episode titled “Breaking Bad.” The synopsis for Better Call Saul’s “Breaking Bad” episode, airing Aug. 1 on AMC and AMC+ reads “The partners escalate their enterprise to new levels.” While the listing doesn’t necessarily confirm their appearance, it does strongly suggest it’s likely.

Jesse and Walt’s appearance is actually something fans have been waiting for all season long after having been teased back in April at PaleyFest by series co-creator and showrunner Peter Gould when he said:

“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?’ Instead of evading, I’ll just say yeah,” Gould, who co-created Saul with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, said at the time. “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.”

So there you have it. Jesse Pinkman and Walter White will be in Better Call Saul after the airing of the show’s next episode, Breaking Bad. For more on the show, stay tuned to Twinfinite.
