Better Call Saul season 2: Jimmy McGill is back in February

Published 03/02/2016

Better Call Saul season 2 sees the return of hapless lawyer Jimmy McGill with new weekly episodes on Netflix available from mid-February.

Before he was Saul Goodman, Walter White’s fashion-forward 'criminal' lawyer, he was Jimmy McGill, a small-time attorney hustling to champion his underdog clients, build his practice and somehow make a name for himself. Better Call Saul was an unprecedented hit when it premiered last year.

The show’s first season earned seven Emmy nominations including Best Drama for its ten-episode first season, plus a pair of Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The season finale found Jimmy walking away from a lucrative job offer, vowing to Mike Ehrmantraut that his days of playing the game straight are over.

Season 2 of Better Call Saul follows the twists and turns of Jimmy’s journey toward becoming his Breaking Bad alter ego, along the way soaring to new heights and sinking to new lows.
