'Better Call Saul' Season 3 Will Offer First Look at Saul Goodman
"It will be Saul Goodman, but not the way you know him from 'Breaking Bad,'" said star Bob Odenkirk in Berlin on Wednesday.
After two seasons playing well-meaning, if morally compromised, Jimmy McGill in Better Call Saul, Bob Odenkirk said he will be unleashing the true Saul Goodman, the slime ball lawyer extraordinaire character Breaking Bad fans know McGill as, in the upcoming season three of the AMC series.
"For the first time, we get to see Saul Goodman," Odenkirk announced at an event in Berlin on Wednesday. "But not the way you think. You'll get to see Saul Goodman, but he is not what you saw in Breaking Bad. That character will appear but in a slightly different form than you've seen it."
In another mini-spoiler for season three, Odenkirk said that Giancarlo Esposito's return as revenge-bent drug kingpin Gus Fring from Breaking Bad will not be just a short cameo.
"Not only is Gus back, but there is a story with him," Odenkirk said. “We get to know more about his empire building, more about Gus' empire and how he built it."
Better Call Saul returns to AMC in the U.S. and on Netflix worldwide April 10.
