Better Call Saul has its penultimate season rolling right now and while the last season scheduled for 2021 may have Bryan Cranston coming back as Walter White, the ongoing Season also has a few Breaking Bad comebacks to look forward to.
Returning alongside longtime partner and friend Steve "Gomey" Gomez (Steven Michael Quezada), Hank steps into Better Call Saul when Domingo "Krazy-8" Gallardo Molina (Maximino Arciniega) is arrested and in need of legal help. Enter: Bob Odenkirk's Jimmy McGill, now officially named Saul Goodman and well on his way toward the criminal lawyer's worst criminal activities.
On fans wanting Hank back in action for a long time, Norris said, " I talked to Peter and Vince years ago about the possibility. They mentioned it to me. I only had one request: "I don't want it to be gratuitous. I don't want it to be jokey, where he's just there for the sake of being there." That was my main concern. I got a call. My agent said Peter and Vince wanted to talk, and I knew what it was going to be about. I told them, "Look, if you think this is legitimate — if you think it's fair and justified to have him back — then I would love to do it." And Vince said, "Absolutely." So I was in. Peter said something interesting to me. He said that Saul's development as a character, maybe Hank had something to do with that. That was great to me. It made sense, and it wasn't gratuitous. It was great to see early Hank. The last half of Breaking Bad, he was just so depressed. It was a tough time for Hank. It was good to see him in all of his glory and swagger and loud-mouthed self."
Quezada said, "It's a pretty awesome blessing. You just never know how writing goes. When we got the call, and Dean called me about it, we were so excited. It pretty much fell on Dean. If Dean said no, then I'm out of the loop, man, so I'm glad he said yes. (Laughs.) I'm glad we got to go play and bring back characters we love so much."
