Better Call Saul is an American television drama series created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. It is a prequel to and derivative of the previous Gilligan Breaking Bad series. Set in the early to mid-2000s, the series follows the story of a con artist recently turned lawyer Jimmy McGill (played by Bob Odenkirk), who begins six years before the events of Breaking Bad and shows his transformation into the criminal person Saul Goodman. McGill becomes the lawyer for ex-policeman Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), whose skills allow him to enter the criminal underworld of drug trafficking in Albuquerque (New Mexico) United States. The show premiered on the AMC channel on February 8, 2015 and has aired five seasons to date. Netflix broadcasts the series in several countries and Movistar Series in Spain.
A sixth and final season is scheduled to air in 2022
McGill initially works as a very poor lawyer, setting up in the back room of a beauty salon that he uses as his home and office. His romantic friend, Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), works as a lawyer at the law firm Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill (HHM), where she and Jimmy worked together. Among the partners is his brother, Chuck McGill (Michael McKean).
Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) runs a chain of fast food restaurants as a commercial front for his drug trafficking operations. His activities are interrupted by members of the Salamanca crime family, including Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton). Odenkirk, Banks and Esposito reprise their Breaking Bad roles.
