There’s has been plenty of chatter around what could have been a reincarnation of Mr. Show with Bob and David for the last couple of a months now, but, in a recent Rolling Stone interview, Odenkirk offers some clarification in order to simultaneously quell rumors about Mr. Show coming back, but also keep us all excited.
Basically, there will be the same writers, as seen here, and Bob Odenkirk and David Cross will be the stars, but the show itself, as it would seem, will be something brand new and, by our estimation, something potentially even better.
The gathering of the moving parts of Mr. Show now looks like a comedy super group with such likes of Paul F. Tompkins, Scott Aukerman, Brian Posehn, and more all coming back.
Odenkirk himself says, “Better Call Saul is not Breaking Bad, but it’s written by the same writers and you can see connections, right? It hopefully will be quite the same as far as the relationship between the two shows.”
Still, with all of this being said, there are no details as to exactly where this new show will end up or when we can see it. Given Cross’ experiment with Hits, they’re probably exploring every single option online and on TV and maybe even elsewhere before they move forward.
In any case, you still should be excited for what’s happening here.
