While many TV spin-offs don’t last more than a couple of seasons, the Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul has been a huge success. The show returns for Season 5 next month, and a new teaser has been released.
The latest Better Call Saul teaser is set in what seems to be some kind of nighttime carnival. A long line of people stretches towards a colorful tent, where shady lawyer Saul Goodman–real name Jimmy McGill–emerges, shouting for his next customer. It’s a big change from the offices that Jimmy has worked out of in previous seasons and hints at his career shift to a more dubious type of legal work. Check it out below:

Better Call Saul stars Bob Odenkirk as Goodman. The cast also includes Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks, Michael Mando, Giancarlo Esposito, and Patrick Fabian, and it premieres on February 23rd on AMC.
In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Odenkirk spoke about where the character goes from here. “He just needs to get the office and come up with the idea that, ‘Who will be beneficiary of these particular skills? Who would value them the most?’,” he said.
“I don’t think it’s a long journey to drug dealers and scumbags are gonna appreciate how fast and loose I play with the truth,” Odenkirk continued. “They’re gonna marvel at it and appreciate it and not in any way have any issue with being a con-job lawyer.”
