Better Call Saul 2 starts February

The brilliant Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul returns to Netflix next month (Feb 15 in the US, the next day in all other territories). In the first series of creator Vince Gilligan’s drama we saw Jimmy McGill, aka Saul Goodman (the excellent Bob Odenkirk), attempt to build a relationship with his lawyer brother Chuck (Michael McKean), whom he looks up to, only to be badly betrayed. Is Saul now about to break bad himself?

The trailer above hints that that may be the case. Part of the joy of the first series was getting reacquainted with old faces such as Mike Ehrmantraut (what a terrific actor Jonathan Banks turned out to be) and chilling figures, such as Tuco (Raymond Cruz). While Better Call Saul – which is made by AMC in the States – is compelling as a dark and gripping drama in its own right, Breaking Bad fans will be interested to hear that Aaron Paul, who play Jesse in BB, has been hinting again this month that he may making a cameo in Saul. ‘Hopefully, I will be involved,’ he said. ‘But I don’t know when that will be. I’m not going to say anything more, but I’m absolutely open to the idea. Hopefully, it happens.’ Meanwhile, anyone hoping to binge on Saul will have to pace themselves. It’s being shown the old-fashioned way – in 10 weekly instalments.
