The new AMC series freatures returning stars Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks, rerpising their roles as Saul and Mike, two of the very few characters who survived the final episodes of Breaking Bad.
The new roster of characters includes Burt, Dr. Thurber, Beth, Eddie, and Zak and Luke. Burt is described as a "Kennedy" type lawyer in a white-shoe law firm. Dr. Thurber and Beth are also supposed to be lawyers. Eddie is a career criminal, a cool guy who speaks Spanish. Zak and Luke are skateboarding twins around 20 years old."
Co-created and executive produced by "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, "Better Call Saul" tells the story of mall-based super lawyer Saul Goodman in the years before he became Walter White's attorney. From parking tickets to mass murder, from slip-and-fall to bond fraud, Saul handles it all.
"Breaking Bad," which concluded on AMC in late September, has for five seasons followed Walter White, a chemistry teacher diagnosed with terminal cancer, who turns to making methamphetamines to support his family, ending up a ruthless drug lord. The series has won ten Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2013 and is regarded by critics as one of the best ever dramatic television series.
