During a Reddit AMA, Gilligan allowed fans to ask him whatever they wanted, stating that "nothing's off limits." The first question a fan asked the creator was if he ever thought of opening the staple restaurant from the show.

"Believe it or not... there is talk of a Pollos Hermanos becoming a real restaurant. This is not an idea that I generated personally. But it's one that's been presented to me, through the good folks at Sony, and the idea came to them from a businessman who has an interest in doing just that. Speaking for myself, I'd love to see that happen!" he answered.

Fans on the thread believed that this could actually become a reality, comparing it to Bubba Gump Shrimp from Forrest Gump, which now has 43 locations worldwide.

The writer is now busy with the Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul, that was picked up for a second season. The fans wanted to know what other characters like, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) or Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), might make appearance on the new show and the creator responded, "Anybody and everybody. The sky's the limit! That's the beauty of this format. The story takes place six years in the past, where all the {i:Breaking Bad} characters are alive and well, but that's not to promise that you'll see every character that we introduced in Breaking Bad."

Season 2 of Better Call Saul is set to air in 2016.
