Better Call Saul” returns on Monday, Feb. 15 at 10 p.m., and in anticipation of the premiere, Variety has first-look character portraits for Season 2.

Series star Bob Odenkirk has promised more surprises in the AMC hit’s second season. “The fans are going to go crazy,” he told Variety in an exclusive interview. “Wait ’til you see who you see.”

In its first season, the “Breaking Bad” prequel ranked as one of the highest-rated new cable series of all time, debuting in Feb. 2015 as the season’s No. 1 new cable among adults 18-49, adults 25-54 and total viewers.

Take a look at the new character photos:

When we left Jimmy McGill (Odenkirk) at the end of last season, he’d turned down an offer to join a big New Mexico law firm. Given that he’s toting a briefcase above, safe to assume he’s back in business — and likely struck out on his own.

Has Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) finally left that parking booth for good? By the end of last season, he was starting to prove his skills as Jimmy’s (mental) muscle.

Chuck (Michael McKean) confronted his brother, Jimmy, in a brutal face-off that led to a seemingly irreparable breakdown between the two. The questions for season two: Can they repair their bond? And can Chuck finally conquer his “disease”?

Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) has been Jimmy’s confidante — with the long-simmering promise of something more. Will that romance finally blossom?

We learned that Jimmy’s nemesis, Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian), was perhaps not as evil as we’d been led to believe. So what’s in store for “Lord Vader” as Jimmy launches his own law firm?
