Better Call Saul surprised a lot of people in 2014. How could a spin-off prequel show featuring a side character from a TV show, even one as excellent as Breaking Bad, tell a viable story? Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, with Bob Odenkirk to play Jimmy McGill, showed everyone how to do it, and Better Call Saul became a […]

Netflix have released two new images from the upcoming second season of Better Call Saul. The streaming service have also released an updated character/ actor list for the new series, which you can read below.
Better Call Saul is a prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad created by Vince Gilligan and writer/producer Peter Gould. The story is set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) meets Walter White. When we meet him in Season 1, the man who will become Saul is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny and hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside and often against Jimmy is fixer Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character first introduced in Breaking Bad. The series tracks Jimmy’s transformation into a man who puts the criminal in “criminal attorney.”
The new season debuts in 2016.

Steven Michael Quezada, who played DEA agent Steven Gomez on Breaking Bad, will announce that he will be running for Bernalillo County commissioner in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Tuesday. The actor and comedian, who is a member of the Albuquerque school board, is joining a race alongside at least three other contenders, according to The Associated Press.
The actor told The AP he hoped to make positive changes in the district, which includes the Hispanic South Valley. Recently, the area made headlines when the Bernalillo County Commission approved a planned »
We're now in a golden age of TV, but the 1990s were a very different time. For many of us who grew up then, "The X-Files" was the first television series we fell in love with. At a time when the small screen was essentially, small, Chris Carter's show, following David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI agents Mulder & Scully as they investigated conspiracies and the paranormal, brought movie-level ambition and a dense mythology that prefigured the likes of "Lost." It helped to launch the careers of not just its stars, but of creative talent like "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, who wrote for the show for seven years. "The X Files" went off the boil in large part towards the end, its complex mythology becoming impenetrable (and the less said about the second movie "I Want To Believe," the better). Regardless, it's still a beloved show, and the news, »

Vince Gilligan has made a seamless Emmy transition. A year after his hit AMC drama Breaking Bad ended its run with back-to-back best drama series Emmy wins, prequel series Better Call Saul, which Gilligan created with Peter Gould, picked up right where Breaking Bad left off. This morning it logged seven Emmy nominations in its awards debut, including drama series, lead actor Bob Odenkirk and supporting actor Jonathan Banks — both alums from the original series reprising… »
In show business, it's often better to be lucky than good. "Better Call Saul" writer Gordon Smith has been both. Vince Gilligan's assistant for the latter half of "Breaking Bad" — a job he got in part because a friend of a friend was on the "Bb" writing staff — Smith was promoted to full-time writer when Gilligan, Peter Gould and company moved on to "Saul," then wound up with the best possible assignment for the prequel's first season: "Five-o," the episode that detailed the tragic story of how Mike Ehrmantraut came to leave his job as a Philly cop and move to Albuquerque. It got Smith the show's lone Emmy nomination for writing for its first season, and could well get Jonathan Banks the acting Emmy he never won on "Breaking Bad." I spoke with Smith a few minutes ago about the experience of being a first-time nominee, making the »

In this new Golden Age of TV, where great shows are available in abundance, only no one has time to watch them all — least of all the people who actually work in television, and thus vote for the Emmys — the only way to look at each year's Emmy nominations is to treat them like the theme song from "The Facts of Life." You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both, and there you have this year's Emmy nominees list. So there were pleasant surprises, like Tatiana Maslany finally getting into the lead drama actress field, and "Parks and Recreation" making its way back into the comedy series category for its triumphant final season after only being nominated there once before. But there was also the usual rubber stamping of past nominees(*), like "Downton Abbey," "Homeland" and "House of Cards" taking up three of the seven drama »

Breaking Bad is, without doubt, one of the greatest television dramas of all time. It also features some of the greatest set-piece scenes and episodes in TV history. One of the show’s strongest elements is its surreal playfulness with the balance between reality and fantasy, employing psychedelic visuals on a regular basis. It’s a technique that works primarily because of the drug-inspired narrative – surreal sequences like Jesse’s heroin trip could only work in a show of this type.
But there are certainly moments in Breaking Bad when these aspects go way too far. “Too far” doesn’t mean that the show became “too controversial” – what does that even mean these days? – but rather, that certain events unfold that either don’t quite add up or fall too far into fantastical and unrealistic territory. These aren’t necessarily bad sequences – in fact, in some cases they are »

This interview was conducted for the Comedy/Drama Series issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. #selfinterview produced in partnership with Verge. Of all the characters who survived to the end of “Breaking Bad,” the sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman did not seem one of the likeliest to get his own spinoff series. But creator Vince Gilligan opted for Goodman, played by comic actor Bob Odenkirk, to be the focus of “Better Call Saul,” his first series since “Bad” ended in a blaze of gunfire and Emmys. “Saul” has a lighter tone than its predecessor; it takes place years before the Saul Goodman we meet. »

“Sneaky Pete” may rise again. Amazon is in negotiations with Sony Pictures TV to pick up the busted CBS drama pilot that has high-profile auspices in co-writers and exec producers Bryan Cranston and David Shore.
Sources said the plan is for Amazon to put the pilot on its Amazon Prime Instant Video platform where it will be showcased for Amazon’s typical crowd-sourcing development process of inviting viewers to weigh on its merits as a potential series.
Sources cautioned that the deal has not been finalized. But if it comes to fruition, the scenario could open up an intriguing avenue for producers and studios with projects that for any number of reasons do not go all the way to a series order from their commissioning networks.
“Sneaky Pete” revolves around a con man who assumes his former cell mate’s identity when he gets out of prison in order to hide from his past. »

It’s been almost two whole years since the Breaking Bad finale aired and fans of the show are still finding it hard letting go and for good reason. It was one of the best shows of the past decade. Only a few months after the finale AMC announced that Vince Gilligan would be working on a prequel spin-off following the early days of dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).
Despite it’s large fan base wanting more there was genuine skepticism that spin-off series Better Call Saul would taint the original. Thankfully Better Call Saul retained much of what made Breaking Bad great and it was considered a success, with a second season confirmed to be on the way.

Vince Gilligan took time to comment on Better Call Saul in his talk with the New York Daily News that appeared in this morning's edition, specifically concerning the possible inclusion of a certain meth-cooking science-teacher-turned-crime-lord. Since Gilligan's odd and alluring spin-off started, there has been a contingency of fans that have had little interest in knowing anything other than if or when Walter White (Bryan Cranston) will be showing up for a cameo or even something far more substantial. And as /Film pointed out, Gilligan was admittedly "coy" when he discussed his intentions of brining White into the Better Call Saul narrative, making clear that he think it would be "great" to have White in the series but that his appearance would have to be "fitting and organic to the storytelling of Better Call Saul." [caption id="attachment_439791" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via AMC[/caption] That's about as clear and reasonable as one would think Gilligan could be on the subject, »

You can expect Bryan Cranston‘s Walter White to stop by the Breaking Bad spinoff / prequel Better Call Saul at some point. Just not in Season 2. “It would be a shame if the show had its run — hopefully a very long run — and he never appeared,” said series co-creator Vince Gilligan. More […]

Writer/producer Vince Gilligan has pulled off the seemingly impossible -- twice!
First, he managed to craft a "Breaking Bad" finale that somehow left every member of the show's rabid fanbase completely satisfied. Then, he found an unorthodox way back into the world he created, scoring yet again with the prequel series "Better Call Saul."
As awards and nominations for the latter series begin to rack up in the walk-up to the Emmys, Moviefone grabbed a quick check-in with Gilligan to talk about the success of "Better Call Saul," get a taste of his second season plans, hear his thoughts on the return of "The X-Files" (the series that gave him his big break), and his reaction to that other massive AMC series finale, "Mad Men."
Moviefone: Congratulations for all the nominations coming in for "Better Call Saul." What has it meant to you that the audience has embraced the »
