AMC's supposed "first look" at Season 3 of "Better Call Saul" doesn't give us much to go on, but it's reassuring to know it's coming
Better Call Saul exec producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould watch Bob Odenkirk being made up as Jimmy McGill during filming for Season 3.
Bearing in mind how historically tight-fisted Breaking Bad mastermind Vince Gilligan has always been about over-revealing what's to come, it's not entirely surprising that AMC's heralded first sneak peek at Season 3 of Better Call Saul ("First-Look Photos") is noticeably sneakier than peekier.
Okay, this would be the brothers McGill, Chuck (Michael McKean) and Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk), in Chuck's living room.
And this would be Kim (Rhee Seahorn) and Jimmy in an office -- Kim's, it looks like.
In the interest of disclosure, I should note that I've withheld one of the so-called advance pix, which shows Vince Gilligan and Bob Odenkirk sitting on a bench. Oh, what the hell, just to prove that I wasn't suppressing vital visual information:
So now you've seen all of the "first look" pics. For the record, here's what the AMC folks have to say as they share these breathlessly revealing snaps (links onsite):
Season 2 of Better Call Saul left off with Jimmy McGill in a dark place — even if he didn’t know it. After finally coming clean to Chuck about sabotaging his case, Jimmy was relieved to stop lying to his brother. Unfortunately, Chuck seemed to have other plans when he revealed the tape recorder that now contains every last word of Jimmy’s confession.I just thought that for anyone who was thinking there's not a whole lot to look forward to in 2017, well, here's something.
So, where do things stand when Season 3 begins? These first-look photos offer a glimpse into Jimmy’s shaky relationships with both Chuck and Kim. Plus: It looks like we’ll be seeing Jimmy/Saul’s alter ego Gene once again as well!
