Better Call Saul is a crime drama TV series created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. The show is a spinoff series from the hit AMC series Breaking Bad and is a prequel from the same universe. 

The TV series is set in the early to mid-2000s in Albuquerque, New Mexico and focuses on the coming-of-age story of Jimmy McGill, who is played by Bob Odenkirk. McGill is a lawyer and former con-man who later becomes the seedy criminal defense attorney known as Saul Goodman. The show also features the moral decline of retired police officer Mike Ehrmantraut, who becomes affiliated with the Juarez drug cartel to help his family.

The show premiered on AMC on February 8, 2015, airing five seasons so far and a sixth and final season consisting of 13 episodes, is scheduled to air in 2021. Filming for the sixth season will take place in Albuquerque, New Mexico with production set to start on March 2021.

The show starts with Jimmy working as a public defender. As he struggles financially working in a closet of a nail salon, his love interest and former colleague, Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) attempts to assist him out of a desperate situation. 

Wexler works as an attorney at Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill, which is co-owned by Jimmy’s brother Chuck McGill and associate Howard Hamlin. After hiring Jimmy for legal representation, Mike gives advice and security for Nacho Varga, a drug dealer who later becomes an informant for Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), a drug lord and businessman. Their operations are affected by the members of the Salamanca family, including Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton). 

Better Call Saul is loved by critics with particular praise for acting, characters, writing, direction and cinematography. The series has received several nominations including Peabody Award, 21 Primetime Emmy Awards, eleven Writers Guild of America Awards, five Critics’ Choice Television Awards, four Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. At the time, it was also the highest-rated scripted series premiere in basic cable history.
