"With the new show coming and the possibility of flashbacks or flash-forwards, there is going to be something with Walter White," the source says. "They won't do it as a gimmick, it will actually mean something when they do it."

The source teases, "Definitely expect the return of Walter White in some way, shape or form in the new show."
