'Better Call Saul' Season 3 Spoilers: Teaser Photos Hint Jimmy McGill’s Backstory; Gus Fring’s Arrival Deems Hank's Appearance [VIDEO]
Better Call Saul Season 3 is now in the works and its first teaser photos have a strong Breaking Bad theme. The spin-off clearly shows the happenings in Jimmy McGill's life (Bod Odenkirk) before he transformed into Saul Goodman from the original crime drama.
The snaps revealed give a glimpse of Jimmy in his pre-Saul Goodman life as Gene, the Cinnabon manager. Wearing his mustache, polo shirt and slacks, it looks like the show is about to feature the backstory of the former criminal lawyer.
"We're fascinated by that black-and-white world that Jimmy/Saul moves into when he becomes Gene the Cinnabon manager," Better Call Saul Season 3's showrunner Peter Gould told Digital Spy via The Independent.
Aside from the said photo, Jimmy is also seen inside a room with his brother Chuck (Michael McKean). Moreover, it is quite expected that Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) will now be seen in Better Call Saul Season 3.
In fact, the show's previous season already hinted the crime lord's return as it teased that Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) is now getting ready to work under him. Of course, the series might also feature the coming of the known Breaking Bad protagonists Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).
Screener reported that the appearances of the lead stars are possible but looking at the show's timeline, it is not the best time that they will come out. In fact, this is the best time that DEA Agent Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) should be seen in Better Call Saul Season 3.
As Mike is now venturing in the world of crime, it is not far that he will meet Fring and the two are about to linked in New Mexico's the crystal meth industry. It has been known that New Mexico's section of the DEA is straightly connected to the country's drug trade.
Hence, it is the perfect timing for him to appear in Better Call Saul Season 3 which returns in spring of 2017 on AMC.
