Banks will reprise his role as righthand man to/enforcer for Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman; Breaking Bad fans will remember Mike as someone who (Spoiler alert!) was killed by Walter White toward the end of the original series’ run.

The network previously announced that the one-hour spin-off, scheduled to bow in November,  “will focus on the evolution” of the morally-challenged counselor before he became Heisenberg’s defender.
