‘Better Call Saul’: First pictures from season two set released

Star Bob Odenkirk and co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould appear in the pictures

The first pictures from the set of season two of Better Call Saul have been released.

One picture shows co-creators Vince Gilligan (left) and Peter Gould (right) taking in the action on set, while the other shows Bob Odenkirk in character as Jimmy McGill, the man who will eventually become Breaking Bad‘s corrupt criminal attorney Saul Goodman.


Season one of Better Call Saul, a prequel to Breaking Bad set six years before Bryan Cranston’s Walter White meets Saul Goodman, aired on AMC in the US and Netflix in the UK earlier this year. The prequel has since been nominated for the prestigious Outstanding Drama Series prize at this year’s Emmy Awards, with both Odenkirk and co-star Jonathan Banks picking up acting nominations.

Season two of Better Call Saul will premiere in early 2016 and feature 13 episodes – three more than season one. Gilligan recently revealed that he is keen for Walter White to make a cameo appearance in the prequel series, but declined to say when this might happen.

“All of the wonderful characters who may eventually appear on Better Call Saul will appear when it is most organic and fitting to the storytelling of Better Call Saul and also when we can work out scheduling issues with actors,” Gilligan explained.
