We got a way-too-brief teaser for AMC’s upcoming “Breaking Bad” spinoff series “Better Call Saul” earlier this month. Now, the channel has released this new teaser featuring “Better Call Saul” creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould introducing fans to Jimmy McGill. How did he become Saul Goodman? We will see when the new series premieres in February of 2015.
Starring Bob Odenkirk in the title role, the series will also feature Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando. The premiere season is set six years before Saul Goodman (Odenkirk) 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 Mike Erhmantraut (Banks). The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “criminal lawyer.” The series’ tone is dramatic, woven through with dark humor.
The series has already been greenlit for a second season of 13 episodes. The first season will consist of 10 episodes.
