Considering the show is called Better Call Saul, it’s been kind of weird to have spent two seasons with small-town lawyer Jimmy McGill and not the Saul Goodman we know and don’t-quite-love from Breaking Bad.
In Breaking Bad, Saul is the morally bankrupt lawyer who crosses paths with teacher-turned-drug kingpin Walter White, but prequel series Better Call Saul has filled in the back story, slowly revealing how Jimmy McGill becomes Saul.
“Of course Gus Fring is back as everybody already figured out – and not only is he back, but there is a story with him, and we get to learn a little more about his empire building,” Odenkirk told Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “He doesn’t just pass through and he’s not just an extraneous character to Saul’s story. We get to learn more about Gus Fring’s empire and how he built it.”
Better Call Saul season three will launch on Netflix UK on 10th April
