Second season of 'Breaking Bad' spin-off begins next month
Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) stares mournfully at his phone as a bar brawl rages behind him in the latest teaser clip from season 2 of Better Call Saul.
The Netflix series, which depicts how the Breaking Bad favourite went from being the honest and clean Jimmy McGill into the crooked Saul Goodman fans know and love, returns next month (February 16).
The streaming giant will start showing season two on February 16, shortly after it begins on US cable network AMC. As with season one of Better Call Saul, Netflix will add new episodes on a weekly basis as they premiere in the US.
Season two of Better Call Saul will comprise 10 new episodes – the same number as season one, but three fewer than AMC originally ordered. The show’s co-creator Peter Gould recently promised fans that the new season features “10 big, big episodes”.
Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks are reprising their roles as Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut in season two, joined once again by Michael McKean as Chuck McGill and Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler.
Season one of the Breaking Bad spin-off series was nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards earlier this year, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Bob Odenkirk. However, it failed to win in any category.
