“Better Call Saul” is back for its second season.
Let’s backtrack a little bit. The finale of season one showed James “Jimmy” McGill (Bob Odenkirk) bailing out of a meeting with Davis & Mane after he came into the realisation that the straight path was just an impediment to his true nature as Slippin’ Jimmy, an expert grifter.
According to New York Times, the debut episode of season two will conclude showing Jimmy checking out his new office at the Santa Fe law firm of Davis & Mane. Near a window, Jimmy finds a light switch with a stern warning: “Always leave ON!!! Do NOT turn OFF!.”
Actor Michael Mando, who plays cartel drug lord Nacho Varga, dropped some hints at what fans can expect from Jimmy this season.
“He won’t become Saul Goodman quite yet. They are having a lot of fun with twists and turns,” he teased. “I can tell you that it is a transformation story. We are going to get to see Jimmy slowly become Saul Goodman,” Mando told CBC.
The critically acclaimed series is set six years earlier than Walter White, before the Heisenberg Empire. “We can go back in the past, we can go during Breaking Bad, and we also tell the story after Breaking Bad,” the actor added.
“We can go back in the past, we can go during Breaking Bad, and we also tell the story after Breaking Bad,” the actor added.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Banks will also reprise his role as Mike Ehrmentraut, another classic “Breaking Bad” character, Washington Post wrote.
The role of Ehrmentraut gave Banks an Emmy nomination for season one while Odenkirk performance as Jimmy garnered him a 2015 Critics Choice Award for best actor in a drama, CBC wrote.
The show also received Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for its breakout first season, CBC noted.
“Better Call Saul” returns Monday (Feb 15) at 10 p.m. on AMC, while its first season started airing over at Netflix on February 1st.
