While Breaking Bad is still on our minds, it won’t be fading from our memories anytime soon thanks to the AMC spinoff series Better Call Saul, which will be premiering later this fall. We’re staring to learn more and more about the series and today saw the release of new information in the form of characters being added to the show.

Per Showbiz 411:

[New characters] include regular players named Burt, Dr. Thurber, Beth, Eddie, and Zak and Luke. Burt is described as a “Kennedy” type lawyer in a white-shoe law firm. Dr. Thurber and Beth are also supposed to be lawyers. Eddie is a career criminal, a cool guy who speaks Spanish. Zak and Luke are skateboarding twins around 20 years old.

Better Call Saul is set to follow Bob Odenkirk’s character Saul Goodman, who was Walter White’s lawyer, through his years of coming up as a lawyer and likely his life after Walter White throws it into chaos. Most of the Breaking Bad writing staff is coming over to the series and there will be cameos from characters we saw on the original series as well. We don’t know who will be showing up for a cameo but the cast of regulars is starting to fill out nicely.

Better Call Saul premieres this fall on AMC.
