With well over a year having passed since Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul hung up their boots as the unforgettable duo of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, it seems the powers that be at AMC (the show’s network) have decided its high time something was done about the absence of the world of Heisenberg’s residency on our screens.
On Sunday 8th February, the much speculated about spin-off: Better Call Saul will grace US screens for the first time, with a subsequent episode to follow the very next day. The show will star Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks, reprising their respective roles of the titular Saul Goodman and his private investigator Mike Ehrmantraut, set 6 years before the small-time lawyer’s first appearance on Breaking Bad.
The latest trailer to be released is as ambiguous as the initial one that lasted all of 9 seconds, featuring Saul stating to a prospective client, “Lawyers: we’re like health insurance. You hope you never need it, but man oh man, not having it. No, ha.” This new trailer merely shows a series of tracking and zoomed shots of a motel room littered with the kind of items you might expect to find at the scene of an unpremeditated crime. The final shot showing a open yellow pages with Saul’s ad circled.
There’s no word on a UK premiere date just yet, but no doubt that’ll appear soon enough. The new trailer can be viewed above.
