better call saul season 3 trailer

At some point, early in its second season, Better Call Saul became as good as Breaking Bad. Series masterminds Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould pulled this off by refusing to let their Breaking Bad spin-off cater to people who just wanted more of the same. Instead, the series carved out its own unique identity and its own special voice.

You can’t quite see that voice in the new Better Call Saul season 3 trailer, which is more about snappy visuals and Breaking Bad connections than the weekly panic attacks associated with watching Jimmy McGill make one poor choice after another. But hey, the promise of more Better Call Saul is a great thing.

Better Call Saul Season 3 - Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring

Better Call Saul hasn’t exactly been subtle with its hints that Breaking Bad baddie Gus Fring would come knocking in the very near future. Last week, they went so far as to release a Los Pollos Hermanos “commercial” featuring Giancarlo Esposito back in character. But it’s only now they’ve finally gone and made it official. Yes, Gus Fring will be in Better Call Saul season 3 — and it sounds like he’ll be giving Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks) something to chew on.

The first Better Call Saul clip, however, has nothing to do with chicken or drugs or Gus Fring whatsoever. Instead, it checks in on Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), who seem to be feeling a little awkward about the way things went down in season two.

Better Call Saul Gus Fring Los Pollos Hermanos

It’s not like we really need to be convinced to tune in for Better Call Saul season three. The superb first two seasons are reason enough to return for another helping. But just in case you’d like something to whet your appetite, AMC’s cooked up a fun little promo — not for Better Call Saul, exactly, but for Los Pollos Hermanos.

Of course, Breaking Bad fans know this cheery fast food operation isn’t exactly what it seems. It’s actually a front for an extremely successful criminal enterprise run by ruthless kingpin Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito). AMC still isn’t saying whether Fring’s back in season three. But they sure seem interested in reminding you that this guy’s currently kicking around Albuquerque somewhere. Make of that what you will. See the potential Better Call Saul Gus Fring tease below.  Read More »

Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul Season 3 Teaser

As of Better Call Saul season 2, Slippin’ Jimmy still has a ways to go before he fully transforms into Saul Goodman. Yes, he’s done some sketchy stuff, but he’s still trying to be a reasonably good person, and he’s still trying to build a respectable career as lawyer Jimmy McGill. But the tragedy of the show is that we already know exactly where those efforts will get him.

The first Better Call Saul season 3 teaser trailer emphasizes the “criminal” part of “criminal lawyer,” hinting that Jimmy could be headed for a big fall. Check it out below.   Read More »

Better Call Saul season 3 first look photos

Hours ago we got a peek behind the scenes of Better Call Saul season two. Now we’ve got a little look ahead at season three, which will premiere in 2017.

As a spinoff to Breaking Bad, one of the most acclaimed TV dramas of all time, Better Call Saul came pre-loaded with massive hype and sky-high expectations. And the show has delivered. Over the course of its first two seasons, Better Call Saul has proven to be a worthy successor and complement to that earlier series — but it’s also emerged as its own thing, hilarious and thrilling and surprisingly heart-wrenching. We can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Slippin’ Jimmy, so click on through to see some Better Call Saul season 3 first look photos.

Breaking Bad - Saul Goodman and Walter White

Over its first two seasons, Better Call Saul has pulled in more than a few familiar faces from Breaking Bad. There’s Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks), of course, but also criminal power players like Tuco Salmanca (Raymond Cruz) and even random minor characters like Ken (Kyle Bornheimer). One that’s yet to show up, though? Walter White, whose transformation from Mr. Chips into Scarface put Saul Goodman on that long and rocky road to Omaha.

At this point, it’s unclear whether the future Heisenberg will ever make his way to the prequel series. But if he does, Bryan Cranston says he’d be “all in” for a Better Call Saul Walter White cameo. Provided Vince Gilligan ever calls him up, that is.  Read More »
