TORONTO, Ont. (October 21, 2016) – Grab your brightest suit (and most vivacious tie), because “Slippin’ Jimmy” returns when Better Call Saul: Season two debuts on Blu-ray™ and DVD November 15 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Canada. This critically acclaimed hit prequel to the Emmy®-winning pop culture phenomenon Breaking Bad continues to lay the groundwork for Jimmy McGill’s metamorphosis from small-time, hustling attorney into legendary criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. Season Two finds Jimmy leaving shortcuts behind for his budding romance with Kim, but with his upstanding brother Chuck keeping watch and disgraced cop Mike drawn into a menacing cartel web, how long can “Slippin’ Jimmy” stay on the straight and narrow?
Ripe with fan-favorite Breaking Bad backstories, BETTER CALL SAUL: SEASON TWO stars Bob Odenkirk (TV’s “Breaking Bad”) as Jimmy McGill, Jonathan Banks (TV’s “Breaking Bad”) as Mike Ehrmantraut, and Michael McKean (This Is Spinal Tap) as Chuck McGill. The AMC drama series, produced by Sony Pictures Television, comes from creators Vince Gilligan & Peter Gould, and executive producers Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz. Rounding out the ensemble cast are Rhea Seehorn (TV’s “Franklin & Bash”), Patrick Fabian (The Last Exorcism) and Michael Mando (TV’s “Orphan Black”).
The season received seven Emmy® nominations including Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor (Bob Odenkirk) and Supporting Actor (Jonathan Banks). Better Call Saul also yielded two nods for Single-Camera Picture Editing, one for Sound Mixing and one for Visual Effects in a Supporting Role.
BETTER CALL SAUL: SEASON TWO contains all ten episodes in three-disc Blu-ray and DVD sets, along with cast & crew commentaries on every episode, a gag reel, a table read with the cast of the episode “Switch,” and two featurettes. “Settling the Score: Original Music by Composer Dave Porter” offers a never-before-heard piece of music written for a pivotal scene in the episode “Klick,” and “Building The Shot” breaks down the brilliant single shot border crossing camera move from the episode “Fifi.”
Blu-ray exclusive content includes the additional featurettes “Jimmy and Kim: A Complicated Relationship” where Rhea Seehorn and Bob Odenkirk discuss how Jimmy & Kim’s unusual relationship has evolved since the series began; “The Takedown” which deconstructs the fight scene between Mike and a pair of home invaders in the episode “Bali Ha’i”; “In Conversation: Jonathan Banks & Mark Margolis,” with Jonathan Banks (“Mike”) and Mark Margolis (“Hector”) sitting down to discuss their illustrious careers from their humble beginnings; “Constructing Davis & Main,” a tour of the exciting new set built for Season Two led by Production Designer Anthony T. Fanning and Set Decorator Elaine O’Donnell; and “Landing FIFI” detailing how the crew teamed up with the Commemorative Air Force to bring the last airworthy B-29 Superfortress to Albuquerque. The Blu-ray also features the full-length versions of all four legal commercials created for the show and the provocative and hilarious new bonus scene: “HSC: Beaches ’n’ Peaches.”
Season 2 of Better Call Saul follows the twists and turns of Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) journey toward becoming his Breaking Bad alter ego, along the way soaring to new heights and sinking to new lows. Jimmy grows closer to confidante Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), while his relationship with afflicted brother Chuck McGill (Michael McKean) becomes increasingly complex. Mike (Jonathan Banks) finds himself pulled deeper into the criminal underworld. As Jimmy evolves (or regresses) toward “it’s all good man,” he’s faced with impossible choices that foreshadow his future. Back stories are further revealed, along with new characters and nods to the Breaking Bad universe.
