‘Better Call Saul’s’ ‘Breaking’ Point: How It’s Gearing Up for Gus Fring

5 April 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a cold, wet January night in Albuquerque, and Giancarlo Esposito is relieved he finally doesn’t have to hide that he’s on the set of the AMC series “Better Call Saul.” He used to have to sneak into town with his head down, his face buried in a pulled-down baseball cap. When fans of the “Breaking Bad” star would still manage to spot him in the airport, he’d lie to them, claiming he was in town to get a cleanse at the Ayurvedic Institute. He even carried a lunch bag from that holistic healing center just to throw them off.

But then there was the time he ran into “Breaking Bad” co-star Mark Margolis on a connecting flight in Dallas. “That caused a bit of a stir,” he recalls with a laugh.

AMC’s worst-kept secret will be on display for devotees of both shows come April 10, when the third season of “Better Call Saul »

Sons of Anarchy Spinoff Casts Breaking Bad Fan Favorite

3 April 2017 4:19 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

One of the great guilty pleasures of AMC's long-running Breaking Bad series were the tremendously complex and consistently unpredictable villains. Bryan Cranston's joyously dark alter-ego Walter White was continually pitted against ruthless adversaries, such as Giancarlo Esposito's Gus Fring and Jonathan Banks' Mike Ehrmantraut, but for my money the show's most-inspired and lethal villain will always be Tuco Salamanca, as played by veteran character actor Raymond Cruz.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cruz, who also plays Tuco in a semi-regular role on the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, has just been cast on the upcoming FX Network series, Mayans Mc, which is itself a spin-off of FX's Sons of Anarchy. This new series takes place after the events in the Sons of Anarchy finale, focusing on biker activities along the California/Mexico border. Cruz's character is Che "Padre" Romero, a hardened member of the Mayans Mc »

Major Crimes Season 6: It Is a Go!

18 January 2017 11:30 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Major Crimes will continue to be TNT's longest-running drama.

It was just renewed for a sixth season by the network.

The successful series predates current network head Kevin Reilly and a time when the net focused on procedural fare. 

While the focus may be changing at the network, there's no denying the focus of TNT's audience. 

This past summer, Major Crimes reached an average of 10 million viewers per episode across TNT's multiple platforms and finished the third quarter ranking as one of cable's Top 10 dramas with adults 18-49.

Initially launched as a follow-up to TNT's long-running hit The Closer, Major Crimes quickly established itself as a must-see drama in its own right.

In its first season, it ranked as cable's #1 new drama of 2012, and it has remained among the most-watched dramas on cable ever since.

Major Crimes centers on a special squad within the Lapd that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. »

TNT Renews ‘Major Crimes’ for Season 6

18 January 2017 10:52 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Major Crimes” has been renewed for a sixth season at TNT, the network announced Wednesday. The renewal comes well before the show’s return for the second half of Season 5 on Feb. 22. Season 6 will consist of 13 episodes.

The series, originally a spin-off of network-maker “The Closer,” has been a bulwark for TNT, pulling in 10 million viewers a week across all platforms, according to Turner. Turner Entertainment chief creative officer Kevin Reilly has taken TNT’s creative direction away from the kind of meat-and-potatoes police procedural that marked the networks’ previous aesthetic. Yet even with series like “Rizzoli & Isles” breathing their last and new, grittier series like “Animal Kingdom” and “Claws” coming to populate the TNT schedule, it appears there’s still room for “Major Crimes.”

Major Crimes” follows a special squad within the Lapd that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. Led by Captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell), the squad includes Lieutenant Provenza (G.W. Bailey), Lieutenant »

If the abbreviated order has you feeling a bit of deja vu, it’s because the procedural started Season 5 with the same, skimpy episode count, before eventually getting upsized to 21 total episodes.

Season-to-date, Major Crimes is averaging 3.7 million weekly viewers and a .45 demo rating, on par with its previous cycle (which aired a record 23 episodes).

"I'm back!! What you've been waiting for, the rise of Gus is coming! Check this out," the 58-year-old actor captioned a faux-commercial for his character's Pollos Hermanos restaurant.

Gus was one of Walter White's biggest nemeses on Breaking Bad, so we can only imagine Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) is in for some big trouble when the two cross paths this spring.
