What’s the plot for Better Call Saul season 5?
It definitely looks like we all might finally, see Jimmy McGill becoming Saul Goodman this season. Previous seasons have teased us of the transformation, as the season 4 finale saw Jimmy choose Saul Goodman as his professional name when he got his law license back.
The following new teaser trailer shows a prisoner with Saul’s trademark garish yellow business card, hinting that Jimmy had finally become the criminal lawyer which Walter White encounters in Breaking Bad.
Who all are in the show this time?
Bob Odenkirk, returns as down on his luck lawyer Jimmy ‘Saul Goodman’ McGill, with Jonathan Banks as criminal handyman Mike Ehrmantraut. Rhea Seehorn returns as ambitious lawyer Kim, a rare good-hearted character, and Giancarlo Esposito will reappear as one of TV’s greatest villains Gus Fring.
Michael Mando, Patrick Fabian, and Mark Margolis round out the cast.
Even season five would see some more familiar faces from the Breaking Bad universe joining the cast, with Dean Norris and Steven Michael Quezada set to reprise their roles as police partners Hank Schrader and Steven “Comey” Gomez.
Their possible return of Jesse Pinkman in the Saul Goodman prequel, as the two are certainly acquainted in Breaking Bad. However, Jesse’s swansong in El Camino felt pretty final – will Aaron Paul be tempted by one last cameo?
