Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan took to Reddit for an AMA and revealed that we’ll see more of a particular character in the second season of Better Call Saul. Naturally, there are spoilers ahead.
Fans were intrigued by Nacho in the early episodes of Better Call Saul’s debut season. It seemed like he could be a frequent recurring character, especially as the Kettlemen’s story unfolded. It wasn’t to be, but we will see “much more of Nacho” in Season 2, according to Vince himself.
Vince explained that they thought that Nacho would appear more in Season 1. He explained that “a television story takes on a life of its own.” As writers, it was their job “to follow the thread of the story you’re writing.”
This meant spending more time telling the story of Jimmy and Chuck. He added that the writers found it hard to fit in more great moments from Nacho.
With Jimmy realising that he is Slippin’ Jimmy at heart, it opens up the door for more appearances from characters from New Mexico’s seedy underbelly, including Nacho.
