Who ya gonna call? Saul Goodman! That’s right, everyone’s favorite lawyer is back. Well, soon. According to reports, Bob Odenkirk will be reprising his role as the sassy attorney we’ve all come to know and love throughout the “Breaking Bad” series when his new AMC TV show, “Better Call Saul,” airs this fall.
The spinoff, which is set to debut in November, has released information regarding the characters who will appear alongside Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks. And we have to admit, they sound pretty entertaining.
Dr. Thurber is a brilliant attorney in his 50s and sounds like he’ll be the voice of reason in the crazy spinoff. Beth is a successful lawyer who has an interesting personal life. According to E!
