"Better Call Saul"
Season Premiere Monday, April 10 at 10PM ET on AMC

          Season 3 follows the twists and turns of Jimmy McGill's devolution toward Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman -- Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyer.  Six years before he meets Walter White, Jimmy is a more-or-less law-abiding, small-time attorney hustling to champion his underdog clients, build his practice, and somehow make a name for himself.  

          The acclaimed second season ended with a pair of cliffhangers.  Determined to prevent his brother from practicing law, Chuck staged an elaborate con, secretly recording Jimmy’s confession to a felony.  When Mike set his sights on sociopathic cartel boss Hector Salamanca, an ominous intervention stopped him from pulling the trigger, raising questions as to what other dangerous players may be in the game.  

 

          As the new season begins, the repercussions of Chuck’s scheme test Jimmy and Kim’s fledgling law practices -- and their romance -- as never before.  This imminent existential threat presses Jimmy’s faltering moral compass to the limit.  Meanwhile, Mike searches for a mysterious adversary who seems to know almost everything about his business.

          As season three progresses, new characters are introduced and backstories are further illuminated with meaningful nods to the Breaking Bad universe. The cast includes Bob Odenkirk, Michael McKean, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando and Giancarlo Esposito.
