Blue faced “Breaking Bad” fans can breathe a sigh of relief, but not until February 2015. “Better Call Saul,” the highly anticipated spinoff of the “Breaking Bad” series has announced their official air date accompanied by a teaser clip showcasing a seemingly younger looking version of America’s beloved seedy attorney in action.
“Lawyers, yeah we’re like health insurance. You hope you never need it, but man oh man not having it, no.”
Bob Odenkirk reprises the role of Saul Goodman early 2015, which has set the interwebs a-churn with speculation as to the plot-line of the upcoming series. Earlier reports allude to the show taking place prior to the “Breaking Bad” timeline. Set in 2002 and six years before the infamous blue meth hit the New Mexico streets, we follow Jimmy McGill, a green lawyer in search of his calling. As some of you may or may not know, Jimmy McGill is the former alias of seedy Saul Goodman.
This prequel timeline creates potential for the infamous Walter White played by Bryan Cranston to perhaps make an appearance as well as reviving the fan favored role of Mike Ehrmantraut, played by Jonathan Banks, who was killed off in the final season of the “Breaking Bad” series.
It would also help make sense of a billboard ad for James M. McGill that appeared in Albuquerque, New Mexico this past July. The ad had a working telephone number along with an outgoing message voiced by non other than Odenkirk himself.
