AMC has released a first look at season 2 of “Better Call Saul,” the critically-acclaimed spin-off to “Breaking Bad.”

In two new images straight from the network (via Variety), Jimmy McGill (played by Bob Odenkirk) is shown looking worried as he’s confronted by two men in suits, while the second image is a behind-the-scenes shot of creators and executive producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould on set during production. See the images below (click to enlarge).




Taking place roughly six years before the events of “Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul” follows Albuquerque, New Mexico lawyer Jimmy McGill as he works to try and make a name for himself in the community’s legal field. While the first season sees Jimmy as a generally good-natured person who wants to try and do the right thing, he’s a far cry from the criminal lawyer named Saul Goodman that worked alongside Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in their meth operation. “Better Call Saul” will continue to show how Jimmy McGill becomes Saul Goodman when it returns for its second season, a life that led to both success and disgrace for the character by the end of “Breaking Bad.”

In an interview during the airing of the first season, leading star Bob Odenkirk discussed the very conscious differences between who Jimmy is, and who he will become as Saul. He said, in part,

In “Breaking Bad,” you meet Saul Goodman and that is a persona that this guy has [created], saying ‘I am going to be this guy. To the public, every day I’m going to show up, and boom! Here’s this guy. [...] This is a role I’m going to play.’ In “Better Call Saul,” we meet the guy who created that role. We learn the reasons why he created that role.

“Better Call Saul” will return for its second season early next year. For more on the show as it develops, keep it locked on GeekNation.
