As Better Call Saul, in its final season, draws closer to the Breaking Bad timeline, more characters will be crossing over to the series according to EW. We’re going to get to see a few more familiar faces in the upcoming fifth season.
Among those reprising their Breaking Bad roles are the late Robert Forster, who will appear posthumously as Ed, the notorious vacuum salesman who relocated wanted criminals.
Along with Forster, Dean Norris will reprise the role of DEA Agent Hank Shrader, brother-in-law to chemistry teacher-turned-drug kingpin Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston.
As well, Steven Michael Quezada will also return as Steve “Gomie” Gomez, Hank’s partner.
Fans have been waiting an awfully long time for Saul’s return; the season 4 finale aired in October 2018, with Jimmy McGill revealing that he was assuming the name of Saul Goodman when his law license was reinstated.
As well, AMC recently announced that Better Call Saul will end after season 6.
Better Call Saul Season 5 will premiere Sunday, Feb. 23 on AMC. While it’s currently on Netflix, El Camino will also make its cable TV debut on AMC exactly one week earlier on Sunday, Feb. 16.
