Jonathan Banks is bringing Mike Ehrmantraut back from the dead.

Deadline confirms that the actor will reprise his role as Saul Goodman's occasional right-hand man in AMC's upcoming Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul.

Mike in Action

Banks - currently appearing on Community Season 5 - will be a series regular on the new Vince Gilligan-penned, giving us a look at Mike before he became involved with Gun Fring.

Casting notes describe Mike as an-ex Philadelphia police officer who worked as the Head of Corporate Security at Los Pollos Hermano and who ended up being an "enforcer in Gustavo Fring’s crystal meth operation."

Sounds about right, doesn't it?

Bob Odenkirk and Banks are the only actors set for Better Call Saul at the moment.
