Fans eagerly anticipating the premiere of "Better Call Saul," the upcoming "Breaking Bad" spinoff, got some good news this week when producer Peter Gould revealed that Walter White could be making an appearance on the AMC show.

Gould told the New York Daily News that producers plan to use a "flexible timeline" to open up the possibility of bringing the Walter White character, played by Bryan Cranston, back to life. "Better Call Saul" will focus on the life of Saul Goodman, White's quirky lawyer, before his "Breaking Bad" days. Bob Odenkirk, who played Goodman in the original series, will reprise his character.

"One of the great things about having a time line which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before 'Breaking Bad,' during 'Breaking Bad,' and after 'Breaking Bad,'" Gould told the Daily News. "That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on 'Breaking Bad.'"

The last time fans saw Cranston's Walter White, the cancer-stricken science teacher turned murderous crystal meth kingpin, was in "Breaking Bad's" September finale where he was slowly dying after suffering a gunshot wound from his own automatic gun after wiping out an enemy white supremacy group.

Cranston won an Emmy and Golden Globe for his wildly popular role. Gould admitted to the Daily News that he now feels pressure to duplicate the critical and ratings success of "Breaking Bad." He said, though, that "Better Call Saul" can only succeed by telling its own story.

"We want to make a show that stands on its own, is its own story, and is a brand extension," he said. "We think we have a story that is worth making . . . We could never dream of the kind of success that 'Breaking Bad' had and the love we got from the fans. But (with 'Better Call Saul') at a certain point you have to do the best job you can and tell the best story that entertains you, get a good response and hope people like it."

"Better Call Saul" is currently shooting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the same backdrop as "Breaking Bad." It's slated for a 2015 release.
