It has been confirmed that Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) will appear in the third season of the highly-rated crime drama series, “Better Call Saul.” Gus is a drug distributor who owns a fast food restaurant as a cover. However, Gus is not the only one who will return to the small screen, as more “Breaking Bad” characters are expected to appear in the upcoming season.
“Giancarlo is an incredibly sweet, generous actor, and incredibly gifted, amazing actor, so it’s wonderful to have him around, and it’s wonderful to get the story closer to the world of ‘Breaking Bad,’ and it’s not just Giancarlo. There are other characters from that show that are starting to appear, so that is super exciting, and it raises our stakes, and it raises our game at ‘Saul,'” revealed Bob Odenkirk, who portrays Jimmy McGill in the series, in an interview with The Huffington Post.
Sadly, 54-year-old Odenkirk refused to expose the names of the characters that are set to show up in the series.
“I guess as it comes closer to ‘Breaking Bad,’ it’s gonna happen more and more,” he continued as there will be more surprises for the fans when the season starts to air.
Some characters that are speculated to appear in the show include Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), Hank (Dean Norris), and Walter White (Bryan Cranston), the protagonist of the defunct crime series.
The Odenkirk-led series features the life of Jimmy, a lawyer who was known as Saul Goodman in “Breaking Bad.”
Jimmy as Saul will come into place in the most unexpected way, says the actor who plays the role. He described Saul as the one who is more “emotionally callous,” while Jimmy has “soft spots in his heart and a lot of hope.”
As seen in the teaser trailer for the next season, Jimmy and Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) are back in action. It looks like old grudges and a family feud are the focus of the season. Jimmy gets arrested and is placed in jail, and it seems Gus is responsible for it.
The third season of “Better Call Saul” will premiere on Apr. 10 on AMC.
