Netflix has given viewers a glimpse of what to expect from the latest series of Better Call Saul after releasing a new trailer for the show.
The Breaking Bad spin-off will return later this month for its sixth and final season, concluding the story of Jimmy McGill and his corrupt Defender alter-ego Saul Goodman.
The newly released trailer begins with Kim Wexler, Jimmy’s love interest and fellow attorney, played by Rhea Seehorn, asking McGill, “Do you ever feel like you’re being followed?”
To which Jimmy, played by Bob Odenkirk, replies, “Well, you know what they say, the bad guys flee when nobody’s chasing them.”
She replies, “You think we’re evil?”
The trailer continues with slow jazz music played over a montage of dramatic clips from the last series.
Odenkirk, 59, collapsed on the set of the series in New Mexico during filming in July 2021.
The former comedy writer rose to fame playing the ruthless Goodman on Breaking Bad before starring in Better Call Saul.
Odenkirk, who later discovered he had suffered a heart attack, made a full recovery and was able to wrap up production on the show.

At the time he said: “I had a little heart attack.
“But thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who knew how to clear the blockage without surgery, I’ll be fine.”
The trailer also confirms the return of a host of familiar faces from the series, including Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut and Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring.
At the end, Ehrmantraut is heard saying, “Whatever happens next, it’s not going to go the way you want it to.”
Netflix has confirmed that the season will consist of 13 episodes split into two parts.
Episodes one and two will be available on Netflix on April 19, with the next five episodes airing weekly.
After a break, the final six-episode season begins on July 12.
