Two trailers for the new season of Better Call Saul have finally arrived.
Fans of the critically-acclaimed Breaking Bad spin-off/prequel can finally start to get excited as the first footage of season two is revealed in one of two trailers. While the trailers are a little on the light side in terms of giving us information about the direction in which the show is headed, at least it starts the run up to Better Call Saul’s hotly anticipated return.
Many were understandably skeptical of the show, assuming it would just be a mediocre, money-making venture attempting to ride the coattails of its wildly successful predecessor. Upon its release however, Better Call Saul had many fans & critics questioning whether it could possibly be better than Breaking Bad. Really though, it doesn’t matter which show is better. It’s like comparing red & green apples: they’re similar, but it’s just a matter of taste. The simple fact that that is a reasonable discussion point says enough about the quality of the show.
Unfortunately, the first trailer is comprised of just two shots. While this is typical of the style of the show, it’s not exactly as exciting as seeing Superman rip open the Batmobile, or a shot of Darth Vader’s melted iconic mask. The second trailer is simply a mash-up of some major points from season one. So while fans may not be wetting themselves with excitement just yet, the trailers should at least be enough to make a few people need to go to the bathroom.
The first season of Better Call Saul debuted on the 8th of February 2015, so we can expect season two to drop around the same time in 2016. If the release dates for each series of other Netflix originals, such as House of Cards or Orange is the New Black, are anything to go by, it won’t be released on the exact day. House of Cards has always been released at some point in February, while Orange is the New Black originally debuted in July, with all subsequent seasons being released in June. According to IMDb, season 4 of House of Cards will be released in February, while the new season of Better Call Saul is simply listed as “2016”. It is unlikely that the two will be released in quick succession, and as there is more information on House of Cards, we may be waiting a little bit longer for Better Call Saul.
