'Better Call Saul' Is Getting the 'Breaking Bad' Gang Back Together

Another Breaking Bad cast member has joined Bob Odenkirk in the AMC spinoff Better Call Saul, making it even more clear that the show will give fans a reunion of sorts. 

Jonathan Banks is set to return as Mike Ehrmantraut, the former police officer-turned-kingpin henchman, for the prequel series focusing on lawyer Saul Goodman. It, of course, makes sense that someone like Mike would return, since he was first introduced as a freelance fixer in service to Saul. It also implies that other characters like, say, Mike's employer Gustavo Fring (played by Giancarlo Esposito) might come back. Something to keep in mind: Better Call Saul is supposed to be more of a comedy than its predecessor. The Hollywood Reporter's Michael O'Connell reported that Banks will be a series regular. 

During the Television Critics Association press tour earlier this month, AMC gave Better Call Saul a November premiere date, so we've got a while before learning who else is going to show up.
