Even as AMC’s Better Call Saul has successfully told its own tale for two seasons, Breaking Bad fans will always geek out at the latest callback. Well, the mother of all Breaking Bad stars is finally joining the series … behind-the-scenes for a new Season 3 preview.
There’s no need to save face – Gus Fring is coming back for Better Call Saul Season 3, and no chipper fast food veneer will mask the terrors we’ve seen that man inflict. See for yourself in a first official trailer for Better Call Saul Season 3, in which the Chicken Man might be the least of Jimmy McGill’s problems.
There doesn’t seem to be any two ways around Better Call Saul taking a trip to the wrong side of a courtroom in Season 3. Previous footage teased Walter White’s future lawyer getting a mugshot, and now Season 3's official key art release promises both stripes, and some “meaningful” nods to Breaking developments.
Are movies-about-greeting-card-writers a genre now? They ought to be. With (500 Days of Summer, Her, and now Girlfriend’s Day, dudes who write copy for card companies might have made their own trope. Bob Odenkirk stars in the new movie from Netflix, about a depressed man in search of love who stumbles into conspiracy, murder, and a lot of face slapping.
We haven’t checked in on Slippin’ Jimmy since April of 2016, and if our first Better Call Saul Season 3 footage is any indication, things don’t seem to be going the criminal lawyer’s way. Our first tease of new footage sees James McGill in a pickle, also promising a spring 2017 premiere.
Invested as we are in learning Jimmy McGill’s Better Call Saul past, few can deny the curiosity of our brief trips in to the post-Breaking Bad future with “Gene.” It looks like we’ll be spending a little more time in the aftermath of Walter White’s demise, according to the first Season 3 photos, along with a look at the McGill brothers’ war.
The 2016 Emmy Awards have already given some much deserved accolades and a few head-scratchers, but at least a few saw this one coming. After many years under the radar, Rami Malek has finally hacked his way into taking home the statue for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama.
Where once it surprised that Bob Odenkirk would return to AMC in spinning off Better Call Saul from Breaking Bad, the once and future Saul Goodman is firmly sticking with the network. Odenkirk will lead a new AMC miniseries based on New York Times journalist David Carr’s memoir The Night of the Gun, as written by The Shield alum Shawn Ryan.
Lest you think AMC had in mind to abandon the journey from Better Call Saul to Breaking Bad midway through Jimmy McGill’s transformation, there’s no need to call a new lawyer just yet. Bob Odenkirk will continue breaking bad through a third season of Better Call Saul, creative team and all.
Prequels often afford the ability to trace history of fan-favorite characters, even if certain backstories are best-left unexplored. Case in point, Better Call Saul has lent plenty of depth to Bob Odenkirk’s erstwhile Jimmy McGill, though the actor himself wants fans to “stop hoping” that Bryan Cranston’s Walter White drops by for an appearance.
