First Clip from Better Call Saul Season 2 Arrives
In just a few short weeks, the hit AMC series Better Call Saul will return with the Season 2 Premiere on Monday, February 15, just one day after the The Walking Dead returns. To get fans ready for this highly-anticipated return, Entertainment Weekly has a clip from this new episode. The clip features Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) helping himself to the cucumber water that he isn't supposed to drink.
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 1 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?
Better Call Saul debuted in February 2015 as the season's #1 new series on cable among viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54. It now holds the title as the 3rd highest-rated first season in cable history among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 since Nielsen began measuring live+3 viewing, after Fear the Walking Dead at #1 (2015) and The Walking Dead at #2 (2010). Its inaugural season garnered seven Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, and won two Critics' Choice TV Awards for Best Actor in a Drama Series (Bob Odenkirk) and Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Jonathan Banks) and the TCA Award for Outstanding New Program.
Ever since Better Call Saul was announced, fans have wondered when Breaking Bad stars such as Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will be incorporated into the series. Series creator Vince Gilligan revealed last month that Bryan Cranston's Walter White may come back after Season 2. Aaron Paul also teased earlier this year that he has had discussions with the producers about reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman, although he isn't exactly sure when that will happen. If AMC orders a third season, it won't be too surprising if both of these iconic characters come back.
Better Call Saul Season 2 is executive produced by showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz, with Gennifer Hutchison as co-executive producer. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television. In addition to Odenkirk, the series stars Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, Michael McKean as Jimmy's brother, Chuck McGill, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin and Michael Mando as Nacho Varga. Take a look at this latest sneak peek for Better Call Saul Season 2, and stay tuned for more on the highly-anticipated return of this hit series.
