AMC has dropped an extended sneak peek for Better Call Saul season 3. For those unfamiliar with the show, it’s the prequel of immensely popular show ‘Breaking Bad’. It follow ‘Saul Goodman’ from Breaking Bad in the lead role, while most of the casts and characters are new, it does have some characters from the original Breaking Bad series. Season 3 will see the popular ‘Gus Fring’ and his famous restaurant back in the picture with Better Call Saul.
Season 3 will consist of 10 episodes and will arrive on Monday, April 10th.
Here is the official synopsis from AMC:
The new season follows the twists and turns of Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) devolution toward “Breaking Bad’s” Saul Goodman – Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyer. Six years before he meets Walter White, Jimmy is a more or less law-abiding, small-time attorney hustling to champion his underdog clients, build his practice and somehow make a name for himself.
The acclaimed second season ended with a pair of cliffhangers. Determined to prevent his brother from practicing law, Chuck (Michael McKean) staged an elaborate con, secretly recording Jimmy’s confession to a felony. When Mike (Jonathan Banks) set his sights on sociopathic cartel boss Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis), an ominous intervention stopped him from pulling the trigger, raising questions as to what other dangerous players may be in the game.
As the new season begins, the repercussions of Chuck’s scheme test Jimmy and Kim’s (Rhea Seehorn) fledgling law practices – and their romance – as never before. This imminent existential threat presses Jimmy’s faltering moral compass to the limit. Meanwhile, Mike searches for a mysterious adversary who seems to know almost everything about his business. As the season progresses, new characters are introduced and backstories are further illuminated with meaningful nods to the “Breaking Bad” universe.
So there you go.
