Here’s the first look at the Breaking Bad spinoff series, Better Call Saul…
“The series 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, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “Criminal lawyer.” The series’ tone is dramatic, wove with dark humor.”
In addition to Odenkirk, the network confirmed the line-up of series regulars. Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad, Community) as “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut, Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap) as Chuck, Goodman’s or in this case McGill’s brother, Rhea Seehorn (Franklin & Bash, House of Lies) as Kim, Patrick Fabian (Big Love, Grey’s Anatomy) as Hamlin and Michael Mando (Orphan Black, The Killing) as Nacho – characters that will represent both legitimate and illegitimate sides of the law.
Better Call Saul, despite not premiering until early 2015, has already been picked up for 23 episodes over two seasons. The debut season will consist of 10 episodes, and the second season of 13 episodes.
