Following the success of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, Apple TV+ has nabbed the rights to creator Vince Gilligan’s next TV series, giving it a two-season straight-to-series order. What’s more, Gilligan has cast Saul’s Rhea Seehorn to lead his next show.
As reported by Deadline, Gilligan’s next show will be a “blended, grounded genre drama” that was previously described as something closer to The Twilight Zone than his Southwest crime dramas.
Seehorn, who played attorney Kim Wexler in Better Call Saul, has been cast as the lead in Gilligan’s untitled series. Gilligan will also serve as showrunner and executive producer on the show.

Gilligan’s follow-up to Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul was highly-anticipated according to Deadline with 8-9 networks lining up to hear the pitch. The series is set to have a high budget and have “significant genre elements,” though Gilligan did not share specifics about the project.
However, he did reveal that Seehorn will play a traditional hero. “After 15 years, I figured it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes… and who’s more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn?” Gilligan says. “It’s long past time she had her own show, and I feel lucky to get to work on it with her.”
Seehorn earned an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of Kim Wexler in Better Call Saul, a top lawyer who eventually gets tangled up with Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman which will end up altering both their lives forever.
