Bryan Cranston Joins ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 3 … in New BTS Featurette
Even as AMC’s Better Call Saul has successfully told its own tale for two seasons, Breaking Bad fans will always geek out at the latest callback. Well, the mother of all Breaking Bad stars is finally joining the series … behind-the-scenes for a new Season 3 preview.
As Cranston himself had previously suggested, the erstwhile Walter White pays a visit to Better Call Saul in a new Season 3 production preview, though the video repeatedly stresses that Cranston will not have an onscreen role. Still, we do get to see the recreation of Los Pollos Hermanos, which will feature the return of Giancarlo Esposito’s Gus Fring.
Ahead of its April 10 premiere, so reads Season 3’s synopsis:
Season 3 follows the twists and turns of Jimmy McGill’s devolution toward Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman – Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyer. Six years before he meets Walter White, Jimmy is a more-or-less law-abiding, small-time attorney hustling to champion his underdog clients, build his practice, and somehow make a name for himself.
The acclaimed second season ended with a pair of cliffhangers. Determined to prevent his brother from practicing law, Chuck staged an elaborate con, secretly recording Jimmy’s confession to a felony. When Mike set his sights on sociopathic cartel boss Hector Salamanca, an ominous intervention stopped him from pulling the trigger, raising questions as to what other dangerous players may be in the game.
As the new season begins, the repercussions of Chuck’s scheme test Jimmy and Kim’s fledgling law practices – and their romance – as never before. This imminent existential threat presses Jimmy’s faltering moral compass to the limit. Meanwhile, Mike searches for a mysterious adversary who seems to know almost everything about his business.
As the season progresses, new characters are introduced and backstories are further illuminated with meaningful nods to the Breaking Bad universe.
Better Call Saul players have previously promised several familiar faces likely to pop up in Season 3, especially after the explicit reference to Esposito’s Breaking Bad guy. Cranston has also teased other returning characters, and Aaron Paul may even have shot a cameo.
