Netflix Crime Shows: Better Call Saul
Release Year: 2015
Created by Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould
Starring Bob Odenkirk, Michael McKean, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando
The Breaking Bad spin-off proved after only one season that it could stand on its own and wouldn’t suffer a similar fate that most other spin-offs do and. Because let’s face it, when you think of a spin-off, you probably think it’s going to be canceled after one season. That’s definitely the case for Better Call Saul after hauling in Emmy and Golden Globe nominations after its debut season.
Better Call Saul picks up well before we see Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad. The series begins with Jimmy McGill (Odenkirk) working to get out of his successful older brother’s shadow and launch his own career as an attorney. He tries to do things the right way but there are temptations along the way that begins to expose McGill for the Saul Goodman character we saw in Bad.
There are four seasons of Better Call Saul on Netflix right now. The fifth season is coming soon. The sixth season of Better Call Saul will be the final season of the series.
