With the premiere of season three a little over a month away, AMC’s released a new poster for Better Call Saul. The third season will debut on April 10, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT with Bob Odenkirk back in the lead role of Jimmy McGill. The season three cast also includes Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando, and Giancarlo Esposito. The Breaking Bad spinoff/prequel was created by Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan who executive produce along with Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz, and Gennifer Hutchison.
The Better Call Saul Plot: Season three follows the twists and turns of Jimmy McGill’s devolution toward Breaking Bad‘s Saul Goodman — Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyer. Six years before he meets Walter White, Jimmy is a more-or-less law-abiding, small-time attorney hustling to champion his underdog clients, build his practice, and somehow make a name for himself.
The acclaimed second season ended with a pair of cliffhangers. Determined to prevent his brother from practicing law, Chuck staged an elaborate con, secretly recording Jimmy’s confession to a felony. When Mike set his sights on sociopathic cartel boss Hector Salamanca, an ominous intervention stopped him from pulling the trigger, raising questions as to what other dangerous players may be in the game.
As the new season begins, the repercussions of Chuck’s scheme test Jimmy and Kim’s fledgling law practices — and their romance — as never before. This imminent existential threat presses Jimmy’s faltering moral compass to the limit. Meanwhile, Mike searches for a mysterious adversary who seems to know almost everything about his business.
As the season progresses, new characters are introduced and backstories are further illuminated with meaningful nods to the Breaking Bad universe.
