AMC announced earlier this week that the highly anticipated “Breaking Bad” spinoff series, “Better Call Saul” will premiere Sunday, February 8 while the second episode will air the following night on February 9.
“Better Call Saul” is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny and hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside and often against Jimmy is “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut, a beloved character first introduced in “Breaking Bad.” The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into a man who puts the criminal in “criminal lawyer.”
Bob Odenkirk reprises his role as lawyer Saul Goodman along with BB alum Jonathan Banks who also reprises his role as Mike Ehrmantraut. The cast also includes Michael McKean as Chuck McGill, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin and Michael Mando as Nacho Varga – characters who are said to represent both legitimate and illegitimate sides of the law.
Vince Gilligan, the creator of BB, directed the first episode of “Better Call Saul.” The first season will consist of 10 episodes and air Sundays at 10 P.M. The series has already been renewed for second season of 13 episodes by AMC.
