Better Call Saul Season 5 First-Look Trailer Takes Back Classic Breaking Bad Cast


Better Call Saul is an American television crime drama series created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. It is a spin-off prequel of Gilligan’s prior series Breaking Bad. 

Set in the early 2000s, Better Call Saul follows the story of con-man turned small-time lawyer, Jimmy McGill portrayed by Bob Odenkirk, beginning six years before the events of Breaking Bad, showing his transformation into the persona of criminal-for-hire Saul Goodman.

Breaking Bad fans will see a very familiar face in the latest preview for the return of Better Call Saul. 

The prequel spin-off will be back this spring for its highly anticipated season, as Jimmy McGill by Bob Odenkirk delves deeper into the Albuquerque, New Mexico’s underworld than ever before.

AMC’s latest teaser opens on an extended shot of Jimmy looking quite worried inside a courtroom, before then showing him parlaying all of his contacts to become a lawyer for various crooks.

In among Jimmy’s antics and Mike Ehrmantraut by Jonathan Banks breaking the arm of a local hood is a brief appearance of everyone’s favorite DEA agent Hank Schrader (Dean Norris). 

It was previously announced that Norris would be reprising his classic Breaking Bad role alongside Hank’s DEA partner Steven ‘Gomie’ Gomez (Steven Michael Quezada) for a first look at what would become an infamous feud with Saul Goodman.

Unfortunately, their fellow Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul recently cast doubt on making a cameo of his own in Better Call Saul, after returning for his own Netflix movie. 

According to sources, he admitted, “I thought maybe I would play him in Better Call Saul,”. “I’m such a big fan of that show. 

But in the recent seasons, in the flash-forwards, especially now knowing where Jesse is, there’s just no reason for him to be at that place and at that time. I can’t imagine him showing up in Better Call Saul.”

Better Call Saul season 5 will premiere on February 23, 2020, on AMC in the US. It airs a day later on Netflix in the UK. The news excites fans and one can only hope the unanswered questions are answered to the viewers.
