Hank Schrader from Breaking Bad is already celebrating his comeback in Better Call Saul with the upcoming episode. The showrunner promises: The figure’s appearance will be memorable.
The series prequel Better Call Saul started its 5th season last week and will have a special highlight tomorrow. As we have known for a while, DEA investigator Hank Schrader from Breaking Bad appears on the scene here too – now it is so far. The spin-off undoubtedly gives us one of the most exciting figure comebacks to date.
Showrunner Peter Gould spoke to TV Line about the return of actor Dean Norris, who is already waiting for us in the upcoming episode with the original title The Guy for This. He reveals that the star will play a pretty big role in at least two episodes.
As Gould tells in the conversation, a suitable moment had to be found for Hank Schrader’s use in Better Call Saul and this has now come. We come across a comparatively fresh Hank, who has not yet lost his senses in the spectacular hunt for his swing-in-law Walter White.
Fortunately for all fans, Dean Norris is by no means fed off with a guest role. Rather, Gould reveals that Schrader plays an important part in at least two episodes – Season 3 and Episode 4, to be more precise :
A cameo is something we have never been interested in because I am afraid that it will throw you out of the action if familiar characters only reappear for a few lines. […] There is more to come in episode 4. You will see Hank and Gomez in action. You are just great.
Steve Gomez ( Steven Michael Quezada ) is also a familiar face from Breaking Bad. He is Hank’s colleague at the drug enforcement agency in Albuquerque, and the two investigators are also good friends privately.
