"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," he said during an appearance on a panel. 

While the writer confirmed the return of the iconic characters, he kept the details of how they will appear in the series well under wraps. "How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself," he said. "But I have to say that’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season."

While most fans were left feeling ecstatic with the huge news, some were disappointed that the return of the fan-favourite characters has been announced before the season's release. One person took to the comments, writing: "It should have been as a surprise," while another added: "I really would have loved for this to be a surprise."

A third person agreed, adding: "Why would you reveal this before the show is out."

Fans are divided over the announcement

Many fans, however, took to Twitter to express their excitement about the news, with one person writing: "Awww yeah! The moment us Breaking Bad fans have been waiting for! The timelines have finally caught up…Bring it on!" 

Another person added: "Woke my husband up at 6:30 on a Sunday to tell him this news and he wasn't even mad at me," while another simply commented: "SCREAAMMIIIINNNNGGGGG."

Better Call Saul season six is set to premiere on 18 April on AMC and AMC Plus.
