AMC’s breakout drama Better Call Saul will be back in session for Season 2 at 10 PM February 15, the cable net said today. The Breaking Bad prequel stars Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill, a mostly slimy attorney who tries to go legit with a promising gig at a big law firm but is tempted to return to his scamster ways.
Better Call Saul was an out-of-the-box hit when it premiered in February, becoming the biggest series debut in cable history in the adults 18-49 demo, en route to being cable’s No. 1 new series of the season in total viewers (5.9 million), adults 18-49 (3.7 million) and adults 25-54 (3.6 million) in Live+3. On the heels of back-to-back Outstanding Drama Series wins for its predecessor, the show earned seven Emmy noms including best drama for its 10-episode first season, which wrapped in April. It also won a pair of Critics’ Choice TV Awards.
“Jimmy McGill’s journey takes surprising, left-handed turns in Season 2 of Better Call Saul,” said Peter Gould, executive producer and showrunner. “He goes to places we’d never, ever expected. As for Mike Ehrmantraut, he’s pulled deeper into a world he was sure he’d left forever.”
The network also released a pair of new images from the series’ sophomore year. Check them out above and below, with this one featuring co-star and Breaking Bad alum Jonathan Banks as Ehrmantraut:
