Both Cranston and Odenkirk memorably appeared in the multi-Emmy-winning series Breaking Bad as antihero Walter White and criminal lawyer Saul Goodman with Odenkirk joining in Season 2. Better Call Saul puts Odenkirk in the lead role with the prequel focusing on his evolution from Jimmy McGill into the fast-talking Saul.

Filming for the sixth and final season of Saul is currently taking place in New Mexico.
