The first episode of Better Call Saul season 2 is available to stream now on Netflix, with new episodes dropping every Tuesday.
Like the first run of this acclaimed Breaking Bad prequel, season 2 will feature a total of ten episodes which will drop in the UK every week. You can watch the first episode now and be kept in suspense for a whole seven days or you can wait two and half months and then power through everything in one sitting.

Best shows to watch on NetflixFor those of you who missed out on Better Call Saul the first time round, the show serves as something of an origin story for Saul Goodman, or Jimmy McGill as he’s originally known and promises to chart his journey from well-intentioned legal eagle to the smooth-talking heel we know and loathe from Breaking Bad.
Bob Odenkirk reprises his role and in a possible nod to his appearance in Nebraska (which, it just so happens, is also available on Netflix) series 1 opens with a view of Saul post-Breaking Bad, masquerading as ‘Gene’, manager of a Cinnabon in a Omahan shopping mall. The scene is shot entirely in black and white. Without wanting to give too much away, series 2 kicks things off in the exact same way.
These little glimpses into the future suggest that Better Call Saul will eventually show us more than Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul and other events leading up to Breaking Bad.
Alongside a handful of favourites including Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) and Tuco Salamanca (Raymond Cruz) newcomers Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) and Charles McGill (Michael McKean), Jimmy’s electro-hypersensitive older brother, make up the cast of Saul‘s characters.
