The 'Breaking Bad' villain returns in a teaser for the 'Breaking Bad' prequel
The third season of Better Call Saul is still a month away from hitting your screen — the season premiere airs April 10 — but today brings another peek at the upcoming action.
The network is releasing a trailer with glimpses of new footage from the new season, and you can get a first look at the 30-second spot here. Get ready for Jimmy’s brother, Chuck (Michael McKean), to warn, “Don’t think I will forget what happened here today. You will pay,” in one moment and for Jimmy/Saul (Bob Odenkirk) to say, “You destroyed our family. You happy now?” in another. Mike (Jonathan Banks) invites Jimmy into some sort of illicit mission. Brace also for guns, wires, recordings, door enterings, target acquisitions, Kim (Rhea Seehorn) processing a Jimmy punchline, Jimmy sitting behind bars, Howard (Patrick Fabian) inelegantly scaling a wall, and most importantly, a look at Los Pollos Hermanos, the fast-food chicken empire run by drug lord Gus (Giancarlo Esposito), the fallen Breaking Bad villain who springs back to life this season in AMC’s Bad prequel. (News of his return became evident in January with this Los Pollos Hermanos commercial.)
“Is there anything else I can do for you?” asks Gus in his finest yellow shirt and black tie at the end of the trailer. Hmmm… move up the premiere from April 10?
