Before he was Saul Goodman, Walter White’s fashion-forward “criminal” lawyer, he was Jimmy McGill, a small-time attorney hustling to champion his underdog clients, build his practice and somehow make a name for himself. Better Call Saul was an unprecedented hit when it premiered last year.
The show’s first season earned seven Emmy nominations including Best Drama for its ten-episode first season, plus a pair of Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The season finale found Jimmy walking away from a lucrative job offer, vowing to Mike Ehrmantraut that his days of playing the game straight are over.
Season 2 of Better Call Saul follows the twists and turns of Jimmy’s journey toward becoming his Breaking Bad alter ego, along the way soaring to new heights and sinking to new lows. Jimmy grows closer to confidante Kim Wexler, while his relationship with afflicted brother Chuck McGill becomes increasingly complex. Mike finds himself pulled deeper into the criminal underworld. As Jimmy evolves (or regresses) towards “it’s all good man,” he’s faced with impossible choices that foreshadow his future.
Backstories are further revealed, along with new characters and nods to the Breaking Bad universe.
Starring Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando, Season 2 of Better Call Saul premieres in Ireland only on Netflix from Tuesday 16 February 2016.
