We’ve seen a handful of fun teasers for Better Call Saul, but how about an extended look at AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff? Not only does the piece offer up a far more comprehensive look at what life is like for Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), but the tone of it really makes it feel like part of the Breaking Bad universe. Odenkirk’s antics are hilarious, but the trailer also has an intensity to it that makes it reminiscent of Walter White’s predicaments.
Hit the jump to check out the brand new Better Call Saul trailer and click here for Haleigh’s TCA panel recap. The show begins on February 8th at 10/9c and also stars Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando.
Here’s the official synopsis for Better Call Saul:
Better Call Saul is the prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White’s lawyer. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “criminal lawyer.”
The series also stars Michael McKean as Chuck, Rhea Seehorn as Kim, Patrick Fabian as Hamlin, and Michael Mando as Nacho — characters that will represent both legitimate and illegitimate sides of the law.
