Back in July, AMC released the first photos from Season 2 of Better Call Saul, which featured Bob Odenkirk's beloved Saul Goodman character being confronted by two mystery men. We haven't seen anything from the series since then, but the network has released two brief trailers, which sadly don't include any new footage, but gives us a tease of where Saul's mindset may be when the new season begins. The first trailer ends with a possibly cryptic quote from last season, where Saul tells Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) that "doing the right thing" will never stop him again.
Last season, fans were introduced to Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), who is nothing like his Saul Goodman persona that fans came to know and love on AMC's Breaking Bad. Despite constantly trying to do the right thing, Jimmy just can't seem to catch a break, and throughout the first season, fans got to see the origins of Jimmy's slow transformation into Saul Goodman. We also got to see brief glimpses of Saul's future as well, working as the manager of a Cinnabon in Omaha, Nebraska under yet another alias, Gene, after the events of Breaking Bad. It remains to be seen whether or not the second season will continue to show Saul's life after leaving Albuquerue.
The series is currently shooting its second season in Albuquerque, NM and is set to debut early next year on AMC. The series' first season was recently recognized with seven Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Bob Odenkirk), Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Jonathan Banks) and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, among others. The cast also includes Michael McKean as Chuck McGill, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin and Michael Mando as Nacho Varga.
There have been rumors that Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul could reprise their roles in cameos for Better Call Saul Season 2, but that has yet to be confirmed. The show's timeline is still several years behind where Breaking Bad started. We'll have to wait and see whether or not these beloved characters will appear. Aside from Jonathan Banks' Mike Ehrmantraut, fans got a big surprise in the series premiere when Tuco Salamanca (Raymond Cruz) appeared at the very end of the episode.
AMC hasn't announced any new cast members for Better Call Saul yet, but hopefully we'll learn who will be joining the show, and when it will premiere, very soon. The series is executive produced by Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. Take a look at the new trailers below, and stay tuned for more on the highly-anticipated second season of Better Call Saul on AMC.
