Jonathan Banks Joins 'Better Call Saul' As Series Regular | AMC

It's a good day for fans of "Breaking Bad." Jonathan Banks has reportedly signed on to the prequel series "Better Call Saul" as a series regular.

As fans of "Breaking Bad" already know -- stop reading if you haven't watched yet! -- Mike Ehrmantraut (Banks) was one of many who died at the hands of Walter White (Bryan Cranston). He never made it to his sunny retirement in Belize. Stepping back in time with "Saul," though, fans might get the chance to see why Mike became such a terrifying character.

Currently appearing on NBC's "Community," Banks was nominated for an Emmy Award for his "Breaking Bad" role.

Jonathan Banks can be seen on "Community," Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. "Better Call Saul" is scheduled to premiere on AMC in November 2014.
