Is Gus Fring really going to make an appearance in season three of Better Call Saul? The new teaser video for Better Call Saul is an ad for Fring’s fast food restaurant, Los Pollos Hermanos, and it would certainly seem we can expect to see Giancarlo Esposito show up as a season three guest star. The short TV commercial for Los Pollos Hermanos is bizarre given what we know about Gus’ real business, with Gus looking all innocent and smiling for the camera. And what’s with the “Taste the Family!” tagline? The new teaser should make Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul fans even more anxious for the season three premiere which will happen sometime this spring.
Who else might we see from the Breaking Bad world show up in season three? With Gus apparently ready to make an entrance, it’ll be interesting to see who else series creators/showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould squeeze into Better Call Saul.
The Plot (seasons 1 and 2): Before he was Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), Walter White’s fashion-forward “criminal” lawyer, he was Jimmy McGill, a small-time attorney hustling to champion his underdog clients, build his practice, and somehow make a name for himself. The first season’s finale found Jimmy walking away from a lucrative job offer, vowing to Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) that his days of playing the game straight are over.
Season 2 of Better Call Saul follows the twists and turns of Jimmy’s journey toward becoming his Breaking Bad alter ego, along the way soaring to new heights and sinking to new lows. Jimmy grows closer to confidante Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), while his relationship with afflicted brother Chuck McGill (Michael McKean) becomes increasingly complex. Mike finds himself pulled deeper into the criminal underworld. As Jimmy evolves (or regresses) towards “it’s all good man,” he’s faced with impossible choices that foreshadow his future. Backstories are further revealed, along with new characters and nods to the Breaking Bad universe.
