The second season premieres on February 15th.
Early in season one of Better Call Saul, two characters from Breaking Bad re-appeared to the delight of fans. Both Tuco Salamanca (Raymond Cruz) and Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) returned, alongside the series’ protagonist, Jimmy McGill (a.k.a. Saul Goodman a.k.a. Bob Odenkirk). Now, Gilligan has divulged there will be another Breaking Bad connection in the upcoming series:
We revisit a character we met early in Season 1 of Breaking Bad and haven’t seen since. It’s going to be a fun tip of the hat.”
Additionally, Gilligan said the change from Jimmy to Saul won’t occur immediately. At the close of the last season, Jimmy swore off trying to be good. But Gilligan assures viewers that he still has a ways to go before he’s the crooked lawyer we met in Breaking Bad:
However, people who are expecting full-blown Saul Goodman probably need to take a breath, hold it, let it out and relax a little bit. Jimmy McGill is a character whom we find ourselves rooting for, so we don’t want to say goodbye to him too quickly.”
Here’s a teaser for the new season:
