‘Better Call Saul’ Season 2 Order Reduced From 13 Episodes
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.
The other day saw Better Call Saul confirming a February 15 Season 2 premiere, though buried in AMC’s announcement lay a listing of ten episodes, rather than the 13 initially announced. Those noticing the change reached out to executive producer, showrunner (and character co-creator) Peter Gould for confirmation, yielding a surprising, if unexplained answer:
In the meantime, here’s how AMC describes Better Call Saul Season 2:
A prequel to the award-winning series “Breaking Bad,” the series follows down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) as he navigates the moral dilemmas of the legal world while trying to step out of his older brother’s shadow and make a name for himself. Season one found Jimmy stumble upon a large class-action lawsuit, which led to a promising job opportunity at a large firm. Having arrived at a fork in the road, will Jimmy take the straight and narrow path with a safe corporate job or will he fall back into his “Slippin’ Jimmy” con-artist ways?
In addition to Jonathan Banks’ return as Mike Ehrmantraut, Better Call Saul features Michael McKean as Saul/Jimmy McGill’s brother Chuck, The Last Exorcism star Patrick Fabian as white-shoe law firm lawyer Howard Hamlin, Rhea Seehorn as fellow lawyer Kim Wexler, and Orphan Black star Michael Mando as career criminal Nacho Varga.
