Better Call Saul – Season 3 Launches Tuesday, 11 April

Season 3 follows the twists and turns of Jimmy McGill’s devolution into 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 staged an elaborate con, secretly recording Jimmy’s confession to a felony. And when Mike set his sights on socio-pathic cartel boss, Hector Salamanca, 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 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.
