‘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. The show 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 as out-of-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 Cast: Who’s in it?
The cast of the show is led by Bob Odenkirk, who plays the role of Jimmy McGill. The other core cast members are 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 upcoming 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.
As the timeline of ‘Better Call Saul’ inches closer to that of ‘Breaking Bad’, we can expect a cameo appearance from iconic characters Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) and the man himself, Walter White (Bryan Cranston). We will update this page as new additions to the cast are confirmed.
