So naturally it€™s also devastating to no longer have another fix on the horizon, and while the show is eminently rewatchable and rewards repeat viewings, many fans still scramble for scraps of trivia and interview titbits to scratch that familiar itch. Which is why you€™re here. Better Call Saul will air in the near future and revisit elements of a world that became very familiar to Breaking Bad€™s loyal fanbase. In addition to Bob Odenkirk returning as the lawyer with a heart of green, Jonathan Banks will also reprise his role as Mike Ehrmantraut, and there are bound to be other guest appearances and Easter eggs to reward repeat customers.
