'Better Call Saul' season 2 updates: Release date for TV and Netflix revealed plus first look photos


AMC has confirmed that “Better Call Saul” season 2 will be available on TV and Netflix in February. Meanwhile, promotion for the show are slowly trickling in, this time in the form of first look photos. 

The channel announced that the series will return on Feb. 15, 2016 at 10 p.m., in direct competition with the Grammy Awards on CBS. The change of schedule is due to Valentine’s Day and a holiday weekend. So instead of a Sunday timeslot, viewers will be able to catch “Better Call Saul” on Monday nights.

The Independent has also reported that the show’s release date on Netflix is Feb. 16.

As part of the show’s promotion, AMC has released a set of first look photos. The first one shows Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) relaxing at the pool while his friend Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) looks on disapprovingly. Meanwhile, the second photo features Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks).

AMC previously released a couple of video trailers to whet fans’ appetites for the show. One of the trailers (“The Right Thing”) hints at where the name Saul Goodman might have come from.

McGill is asked about his name to which he replies, “Saul. It’s all good, man.”

The other trailer, titled “Dolla,” shows McGill asking for a fee of $140 from his clients.

In April, the show’s cast and producers revealed in an interview that the characters will be getting closer to each other and McGill will be developing more and more into Saul Goodman. Peter Gould, the show’s writer, revealed more. 

“Jimmy McGill’s [Bob Odenkirk] journey takes surprising, left-handed turns in season 2 of Better Call Saul,” said Gould in a statement. “He goes to places we’d never, ever expected. As for Mike Ehrmantraut [Jonathan Banks], he’s pulled deeper into a world he was sure he’d left forever. We can’t wait to share the next chapter of Better Call Saul with the fans who have embraced the show.”
