Last week, AMC debuted a new trailer for the hit series Better Call Saul, where Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) was given a new job by Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks). As we count down the days to the Season 2 premiere on Monday, February 15, AMC has released yet another trailer, which is much more cryptic. This footage shows Saul in a seedy Mexican dive bar, as he drowns his sorrows while a mariachi band is playing. The big question is, whose call Saul avoiding?
As Saul downs another shot, his cell phone rings, although he doesn't answer it, staring at his phone with contempt. Could it be his brother Chuck McGill (Michael McKean)? Both Saul and Chuck didn't exactly end the first season on good terms, when it was revealed that Chuck made a deal with Hamlin (Patrick Fabian), forcing Saul out of his big class-action case that he took to their firm. If the new trailer wasn't enough, we also have a preview where Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Michael McKean and executive producers Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould and Melissa Bernstein discuss what may happen to Saul in the second season.
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.
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.
