The fifth season, which debuted over a year ago, garnered Emmy nominations including Outstanding Drama Series as well as a single Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor – Television Series Drama for Bob Odenkirk’s acclaimed performance in the last season.
The Breaking Bad prequel series stars Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Michael McKean as Chuck McGill Jr,, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, Michael Mando as Nacho Vargo and Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring.
In Season 5, Jimmy McGill’s decision to practice law as “Saul Goodman” creates unexpected and profound waves of change for those in his orbit. Last season also featured the return of Breaking Bad fan favorites Dean Norris and Steven Michael Quezada, who are reprising their roles as Hank Schrader and Steven Gomez.
The critically acclaimed drama is created by Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan, who are serving as executive producers along with Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison. The series recently garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over three seasons, has earned 23 Emmy Award nominations, three Golden Globe Award nominations, two Writers Guild Awards, three Critics’ Choice Awards, a Television Critics Association Award and two AFI Awards for “TV Programs of the Year,” among many other Guild nominations.
