AMC's Better Call Saul: Season 1 — Extended Trailer


added: Sun, Jan 11th '15

Providing another exciting look at Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould's upcoming "Breaking Bad" prequel/spin-off, an extended trailer for AMC's much-anticipated new series "Better Call Saul" has been released online.

Six years before he became Walter White's legal counsel, Saul Goodman -- or rather, Jimmy McGill -- was just another nickel-and-dime criminal attorney trying to make a living. So, how did this shabby legal eagle become the person we all know and love? The upcoming cable series, starring Bob Odenkirk, will explore Sal's humble beginnings and show his crooked rise from anonymous to infamous. It will also delve into Sal's choppy relationship with his brother (played by Michael McKean) and his brother's criminal case that may have played an important part in turning Sal into Albuquerque's favorite sleazy lawyer.

Also starring "Breaking Bad" alum Jonathan Banks, "Better Call Saul" will have a two-night premiere next month, on Sunday, February 8th and Monday, February 9th. (Monday nights will be the show's regular time.) Unfortunately, producers have recently announced that the characters, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), will definitely not be a part of the first season. Though cameos on other seasons beyond the first are still a possibility.

Better Call Saul is the prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White's lawyer. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is "fixer" Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts "criminal" in "criminal lawyer."
