Mere days after AMC in the United States set a launch date for the second season of Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, UK broadcaster Netflix has followed suit.
The UK arm of the streaming service has announced that the show’s thirteen episode second season will premiere on Tuesday February 16th, less than 24 hours after the U.S. broadcast on AMC. New episodes will then continue to be made available every Tuesday, through to the season two finale in May.
Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, Better Call Saul follows down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill as he navigates the moral dilemmas of the legal world while trying to step out of his older brother’s shadow and make a name for himself. The drama series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and stars Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando.
The first season of Better Call Saul, which is set some six years before Saul Goodman (AKA Jimmy McGill) meets Walter White, found Jimmy stumble upon a large class-action lawsuit, which led to a promising job opportunity at a large firm. Having arrived at a fork in the road, will Jimmy take the straight and narrow path with a safe corporate job or will he fall back into his “Slippin’ Jimmy” con-artist ways?
“Jimmy McGill’s journey takes surprising, left-handed turns in season two of ‘Better Call Saul.’ 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,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner Peter Gould. “We can’t wait to share the next chapter of ‘Better Call Saul’ with the fans who have embraced the show.”
