So far, trailers have told us little about the plot or the characters, but a newly released teaser video reveals so much more — just in time for the holidays!

Finally, we get to see actor Bob Odenkirk in action as Saul, the original series' slimy, money-laundering lawyer.

"You! Will! Atone!" he screams at a man and a woman dressed in business suits, to which the man calmly replies, "What can we do for you, Jimmy?"

According to Rolling Stone, the spin-off will tell the early story of Jimmy McGill's (who we know as Saul) development into the slimeball lawyer we know, long before Breaking Bad takes place — six years before, the magazine reports.

The Hollywood Reporter first debuted the trailer for the show, which we recently learned will stream on Netflix. The trailer gives us moments like Saul telling us how he feels about money (it's either beside the point or it is the point, depending on when you ask). It also shows Saul in action inside a courtroom and being tied up and pushed around, so we now know he definitely isn't squeaky clean, even years before making his Breaking Bad debut.

We also see Saul arguing with another beloved Breaking Bad character: his "fixer," Mike Ehrmantraut, played by Jonathan Banks.

Better Call Saul is currently scheduled for a two-night premiere on AMC on Feb. 8 and Feb. 9, both at 10/9c. All future episodes will air on Monday nights.
