ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It’s been a year since we were introduced to “Better Call Saul.”
The prequel to the cultural juggernaut “Breaking Bad,” it took viewers into the life of Jimmy McGill and how he evolves into Saul Goodman.
The series – which is filmed and based in Albuquerque – begins its second season at 8 tonight.
I caught up with Jonathan Banks and Michael McKean, who play Mike Ehrmantraut and Chuck McGill respectively. Both actors talked about how the new season will delve further into each character’s past.
“I’ve been on my soapbox all day talking about Mike,” Banks says with a laugh. “This season, you will learn more about where Mike is going to end up. Last season, we got a glimpse of what made Mike the way he is. Mike has been a hard man who has had a dark life for a long time.”
