The final episodes of Better Call Saul will see the guest appearance of Carol Burnett.
The actress/comedian has been confirmed to appear on upcoming episodes of the show. She will play the character Marion in what is said, but no other details were disclosed apart from this news.
Burnett, who has garnered six Emmys, admitted her love for Breaking Bad and its prequel, Saul.
In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel years ago, Burnett said, “I’m crazy about anything [Bad and Saul overload] Vince Gilligan writes.” The actress was present on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Bob Odenkirk in April. She has also been referred to in season 2 by Chuck (Michael McKean), Jimmy’s brother.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of my favorite show,” said Burnett regarding her guest appearance.
The final season of Breaking Bad will have many expected guests. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will return their Breaking Bad characters – Walt and Jesse.
Saul’s midseason finale sees Jimmy (Odenkirk) and Kim’s (Rhea Seehorn) scheme going sideways, with Lalo (Tony Dalton) murdering Howard (Patrick Fabian), menacingly connecting the lives of the lawyers and the cartel.
“A lot of this story is the story of unintended consequences,” said co-creator Peter Gould in a recent interview with EW. “The consequences are just beginning, let’s put it that way.”
The action-packed final episodes of this TV show will be released on July 11th.
