Last year, Better Call Saul was renewed for a second season well before the show premiered. The series premiered well but the ratings saw a big drop in week two and the numbers dwindled downward over the course of the season. Will the ratings rise in season two or will they fall lower? Cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A prequel to the Breaking Bad TV series, Better Call Saul is set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White’s lawyer. At this point, he’s down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill who’s navigating the moral dilemmas of the legal world — while trying to step out of his older brother’s shadow and make a name for himself. The rest of the cast includes Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian, Rhea Seehorn, and Michael Mando.
