In case you haven’t heard, this highly-anticipated prequel to Breaking Bad is set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White’s lawyer. Known then as Jimmy McGill, he was a small-time lawyer, searching for his destiny and hustling to make ends meet. The series will track Jimmy’s evolution into Saul, Albuquerque’s top criminal (criminal) lawyer.

Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is another familiar face from Breaking Bad: “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks). The series also stars Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap) as Chuck McGill, Rhea Seehorn (Franklin & BashHouse of Lies) as Kim Wexler, Patrick Fabian (Big LoveGrey’s Anatomy) as Howard Hamlin, and Michael Mando (Orphan BlackThe Killing) as Nacho Varga. Season 1 of Better Call Saul will consist of ten episodes, and the show has already been picked up for a second season of 13 episodes.

Better Call Saul is from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and Breaking Bad writer Peter Gould. The series is executive produced by Breaking Bad alums Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, and co-executive produced by Breaking Bad‘s Thomas Schnauz and Stewart A. Lyons.
