However the first season of Better Call Saul ended, Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy McGill has plenty badder to break in the coming years, especially over the Breaking Bad prequel’s second season. Our first clip from the second year has arrived, in which the future Saul Goodman is already starting to break the rules.

Knowing the ending, or even the ending’s ending isn’t a spoiler when it comes to prequels, right? After all, we may know where Better Call Saul ultimately ends up, but the erstwhile Jimmy McGill still has a few lines to cross by the time Season 2 premiere. See for yourself as Bob Odenkirk returns to New Mexico in the first footage!
Prequels shouldn’t suck all the fun out of a given story, and AMC’s Better Call Saul went a long way in Season 1 toward eking out from Breaking Bad’s shadow. Case in point, Saul is front and center (with a fellow alum or two) in the latest colorful key art for the 2016 premiere of Saul’s Season 2 return.
It wasn’t any surprise when AMC swiftly renewed Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul for a second season ahead of its first premiere, at the time promising 13 episodes to the inaugural run’s ten. Now that Season 2 has set a February 2016 premiere, however, the episode order has apparently been reduced to the same ten as its predecessor.
Breaking Bad alum Bob Odenkirk had himself a banner weekend returning to Mr. Show by way of Netflix’s W/ Bob and David, but 2016 will see the man returning to an even more iconic role. AMC has officially set a 2016 premiere for Better Call Saul Season 2, and ol’ Slippin’ Jimmy is on the rise once more.
The first season finale for AMC’s Better Call Saul made it clear that ol’ “Slippin’ Jimmy” might not keep his earnest side much longer, but is Saul Goodman finally on the way? That’s the size of it by Season 2's first official teaser trailers, while Bob Odenkirk does his best to stay straight in the Season 1 gag reel.
Netflix’s forthcoming Mr. Show reunion of W/ Bob & David already gave us a taste of its first four episodes with one sneak peek, and now the Key of Key & Peele is in on the fun. Watch another new David Cross sketch from W/ Bob & David right now, with Keegan-Michael Key!
If you wondered how long it would take Bob Odenkirk and David Cross’ new Netflix comedy W/ Bob & David to turn into vintage Mr. Show, the wait wasn’t long. Before next months premiere, check out a full six-minute sketch of “Resolutions” from the new series!
Horror and comedy are two tricky genres on their own, and when combined you have the potential to deliver pure gold (Cabin in the Woods, What We Do in the Shadows) or total mediocrity. Freaks of Nature is the latest entry in the horror comedy sub-genre, a film for which Jonah Hill was once set to make his directorial debut, and judging by the trailer, it could’ve used a little of his particular comedic skill set.
We may not get any more Mr. Show, but Netflix has the next best thing W/ Bob & David. The Better Call Saul and Arrested Development stars reunite for their next round of sketch comedy, and Netflix has the first official trailer and poster, with some surprise guests.
