EXCLUSIVE: 'Better Call Saul' Stars Spill on the Iconic 'Breaking Bad' Cameos and Locations in Season 2!
By Leanne Aguilera
Better Call Saul's second season is almost here!
As we impatiently wait for Jimmy McGill to make his inevitable transition into Saul Goodman -- aka Walter White's slimy lawyer we came to know and love -- fans are anxiously wondering if the sophomore season will host any more Breaking Bad cameos.
Luckily for you, ET was the very first outlet invited to Better Call Saul's season two set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and we caught up with series stars Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn to get the exclusive details on the upcoming character and location crossovers.
"It's really crazy how much cool stuff and characters are finding their way into this world in a very organic way," Odenkirk spilled to ET in between scenes on a late October night.
"You know, Albuquerque is a city, but it's not as big as L.A. or New York, so the [Breaking Bad] characters are here," Odenkirk continues. "They're going to see each other."
Be still our Heisenberg-loving hearts!
Despite the fact that Better Call Saul has been linked to Breaking Bad from the get-go, the drama's first season proved to be a standalone smash for AMC.
Those who had missed the Walter White bandwagon were able to tune into Better Call Saul's prequel timeline and not feel out of the loop, while longtime Breaking Bad fans expanded their TV universe with plenty of nods and inside jokes from the flagship series.
Not only will we be seeing some familiar faces in season two, fans will also be treated to so some major meth-related easter eggs, including a trip back to an iconic location!
Remember The Dog House? (FYI, each and every Breaking Bad fan should be feverishly nodding right about now!)
Viewers were first introduced to this unique eatery during season one of the smash AMC series when Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) sold meth out of the walk-up window. And now, it's time for our Better Call Saul stars to bask in the stand's neon glow.
During our time on set, ET watched a scene from an upcoming episode in which Saul and Kim share a simple, yet sweet chili dog dinner together. However, what fans are not going to be seeing on screen is just how many takes it took -- and hot dogs the stars ate! -- in order to capture each and every angle needed to achieve the series' cinematic shooting style.
Spoiler Alert: It was a lot!
"This scene is going to be me eating about 14 chili dogs until about 5 o'clock in the morning," Seehorn shared with a laugh. "I'm excited! I'll eat 'em. On the 14th one I might not be as excited, but I will act."
Season two of Better Call Saul premieres Monday, Feb. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
