AMC's forthcoming 'Breaking Bad' prequel series 'Better Call Saul' inspired us with a bit of hope in its promise to potentially jump time both before and after Walter White, but we knew only half the story. Find out exactly when 'Better Call Saul' takes place in Saul Goodman's life with AMC's new synopsis, and what new name we'll be calling Saul in early 2015!
Better Call Saul
Early on in development of 'Breaking Bad' spinoff 'Better Call Saul,' it seemed somewhat apparent the story would chronicle Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk)'s career before meeting Walter White. Odenkirk himself then alluded that we might catch up with the sleazy lawyer post-'Breaking Bad' as well, and now the showrunner has confirmed a "flexible timeline" that could see some familiar favorites returning to the fold.
We were on the fence when AMC announced that 'Breaking Bad' would spawn its very own 'Better Cal Saul' spinoff, but already the network is doubling down on its criminal lawyer. Not only has 'Better Call Saul' already been renewed for a second season, but the series premiere has also moved to 2015, and the first photo of Bob Odenkirk as a stylin' Saul Goodman has arrived!
A few weeks ago 'Breaking Bad''s prequel-sequel (maybe) series 'Better Call Saul' added its first original cast member in Christopher Guest alum Michael McKean, and while details remain tight, three new names have been added. 'The Last Exorcism' star Patrick Fabian joins the regulars of 'Better Call Saul,' along with 'Franklin & Bash' alum Rhea Seehorn and 'Orphan Black''s Michael Mando, but who might they play?
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the front of AMC's forthcoming 'Breaking Bad' prequel-sequel (maybe) series 'Better Call Saul,' apart from its November premiere or returning stars Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks. Now, the spinoff series has officially cast its first new character, adding Christopher Guest alum Michael McKean into the mix.
We're still on the fence about AMC's decision to spin 'Breaking Bad' off into a prequel-sequel of sorts with Bob Odenkirk's 'Better Call Saul,' and while we know at least one familiar face will be around, we've been wondering who else might pop up. Now, we've learned of several new characters 'Better Call Saul' will introduce as part of its regular cast, but can the show succeed without its most popular franchise stars?
We're still not sure if we want 'Breaking Bad' to open up its doors once more for the proposed 'Better Call Saul' prequel spinoff, though the recent revelation that we'd at least have Jonathan Banks back as Mike certainly helped. Now, Dean Norris becomes the latest 'Breaking Bad' cast member to weigh in on the possibility of a return along with an update on Aaron Paul's interest.
It's been awhile since we've heard much from 'Breaking Bad''s Spanish language remake 'Metastasis,' at least since the first trailer back in October, now that 'Better Call Saul' dominates the conversation. So while we wait for a return to the original world of Walter White, check out an epic 6-minute preview of the Spanish language 'Metastasis,' along with new details on its own Saul Goodman!
We weren't over the moon by the initial revelation that AMC would parlay 'Breaking Bad''s colossal success into prequel spinoff 'Better Call Saul,' but if we have to explore Saul Goodman's pre-Walter White past, our favorite New Mexican lawyer will at least keep some fine company. 'Breaking Bad' veteran Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) will co-captain 'Better Call Saul' alongside Bob Odenkirk, but how regular will Mike's presence be?
