‘Better Call Saul’ is an American television crime drama series created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. It is a spin-off prequel of Gilligan’s prior series ‘Breaking Bad‘. If you are a true ‘Breaking Bad’ fan then ‘déjà vu’ are the words for you. Well, Albuquerque, Saul, Mike, Tuco, Gustavo all are coming this year to freshen your memory and bring you back to that era of one of the most iconic series in the history of television. It has received widespread critical acclaim and has been showered with nominations in major awards like Emmys, Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards. Adapted in a similar tone to its parent show, it has a comic touch that naturally presents itself out of a situation, while articulating a serious issue. It gives us a full story of how Saul Goodman became the resourceful lawyer that we had met in the previous series. Apart from him, we also get a backstory of some other major characters.
Better Call Saul Season 5 Cast: Who’s in it?
Bob Odenkirk will obviously reprise his role of Jimmy McGill in ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 5, and should be rejoined by the show’s core cast: Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Giancarlo Esposito as Gustavo Fring, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, Michael Mando as Nacho Varga, Tony Dalton as Lalo Salamanca and Joe DeRosa as Caldera.
A bunch of characters, that have been introduced in the previous seasons, might also be on the payroll for the upcoming season. However, due to the secrecy of the network about the fifth season, we can’t be sure about all of them. ‘Better Call Saul’ has, previously, seen the likes of Laura Fraser, Lavell Crawford, JB Blanc, Tina Parker and Mark Margolis join in the roles that haven’t yet lost their purpose in the storyline.
