‘Better Call Saul’ Sets Season 5 Premiere Date

BETTER CALL SAULPREMIERESEASON 5

S'all good man: The long-awaited “Better Call SaulSeason 5 will premiere on AMC on Sunday, February 23.

It actually hasn't been all good man for Jimmy McGill, Mike Ehrmantraut, Nacho Varga, and most of the other “Better Call Saul” characters. Season 4 marked a particularly dark turn for the series and its protagonists and it is starting to become clearer how the likes of Jimmy and Mike became unapologetic criminals in “Breaking Bad.” Season 4 ended with Jimmy finally getting reinstated and deciding to practice law under the Saul Goodman alias he was known for in “Breaking Bad,” while Mike regretfully killed a German engineer that was directing the construction of Gustavo Fring's meth superlab.

It seems likely that “Better Call Saul” will end after six seasons, so Season 5 is unlikely to wrap up all of the series' loose ends. That said, there's still plenty of ground to cover in its upcoming 10 episodes. Check out the teaser photos from the upcoming season below:

Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman Bob Odenkirk

It looks like Jimmy, or Saul, is back at the law in Season 5. Jimmy was clearly traumitized by the death of his brother, Chuck McGill, in Season 4, and much of the season focused on his downward spiral from aspiring do-gooder into comparably selfish con artist. It's still hard not to sympathize with Jimmy, and there's still a stark difference in personality between the Season 4 Jimmy McGill and the Saul Goodman of “Breaking Bad.” Expect more tragedies and complications in Season 5 to bridge the gap between the two.

Kim Wexler Rhea Seehorn

Kim Wexler, Jimmy's love interest and sort-of partner-in-crime, was blindsided by Jimmy deciding to practice law as Saul Goodman in the show's Season 4 finale. Although Kim became more willing to participate in Jimmy's con jobs in Season 4, her lack of mention in “Breaking Bad” makes it seem likely that her relationship with Jimmy could be reaching a breaking point.

Series creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are always full of surprises, so Kim's fate is hardly sealed. Still, it seems plausible that some sort of massive falling out between the two could further push Jimmy towards becoming the morally bankrupt lawyer he was known as in “Breaking Bad.”

Mike Ehrmantraut Jonathan Banks

Mike never wanted to take on the violent jobs in “Better Call Saul,” but the former cop regretfully murdered an engineer on Gus' orders in the Season 4 finale. It's an action that clearly tore him up inside, but Mike was nonetheless unwaveringly loyal to Gus in “Breaking Bad.” The upcoming season will likely flesh out the two's relationship and also further explain how Mike went from an outsider in Gus' burgeoning meth business to the Chilean's right-hand man.

Of course, Lalo Salamanca is also lurking around, and Mike caught wind of him in the Season 4 finale. Given his absence in “Breaking Bad” and the fact that the entire Salamanca family is dead by the end of that series, it's likely that Lalo's interferences will be a significant plot driver for Mike's Season 5 arc.

Jimmy McGill and Huell Babineux Lavell Crawford

Huell's back, Jimmy is wearing more garish suits, and it looks like the duo might get to eat some free churros. Season 5 is raising the stakes. Jimmy began regularly working with Huell when the former began selling drop phones to criminals, and it looks like their partnership is going to continue.

Gustavo Fring Giancarlo Esposito

While “Better Call Saul” offered fairly sympathetic arcs for most of its main characters, Gus has always calculating, oft-terrifying, criminal mastermind. Much of his time on “Better Call Saul” has been dedicated to his efforts to systamatically destroy the Salamanca family and a fictional version of the Juárez Cartel while constructing his own meth superlab.

Season 4 ended with Lalo Salamanca catching wind of his plans, and the superlab's construction will likely be complicated by Gus ordering the murder of its leading engineer. Gus' ultimate fate is already sealed, but how he resolves those two issues remains to be seen.

Nacho Varga Michael Mando and Jimmy McGill

Jimmy had a few unfortunate run-ins with cartel associate Nacho Varga in Season 1, but the two haven't shared screen time since then. For legal or criminal reasons, it looks like the two will be reunited in Season 5.
Nacho clearly wants out of the cartel business, as seen by the forged documents he has for himself and his father, but escaping from Gus and the Salamancas will be no simple task.
