While the void left by the end of Breaking Bad still exists, it’s getting closer and closer to being filled by the new spinoff series that AMC is set to premiere this fall. While Walter White’s story is over, things are about to pick up with his lawyer Saul Goodman in the new series Better Call Saul.
Bob Odenkirk is back as Saul and other Breaking Bad character will make cameo appearances but we are now learning of completely new and original characters being added to the cast.
[New characters] include regular players named Burt, Dr. Thurber, Beth, Eddie, and Zak and Luke. Burt is described as a “Kennedy” type lawyer in a white-shoe law firm. Dr. Thurber and Beth are also supposed to be lawyers. Eddie is a career criminal, a cool guy who speaks Spanish. Zak and Luke are skateboarding twins around 20 years old.
It’s unclear who will be filling these roles, but Better Call Saul is really starting to come into its own as a series and not just a piggyback spinoff of an iconic show.
There’s no guarantee that the series will be any god or that it will last, but everything we’ve heard about it so far is positive and our expectations are starting to be set nice and high.
