Will AMC greenlight Lucky Hank Season 2? Bob Odenkirk has had a successful partnership with AMC, having been a crucial part of the network’s success with the Breaking Bad franchise over the last decade.

Better Call Saul has been wildly popular since its inception. With the announcement of a new AMC drama, Lucky Hank, fans are eagerly anticipating Odenkirk’s starring role and have high expectations.

Aaron Zelman and Paul Lieberstein, who served as showrunners, adapted Richard Russo’s 1997 novel Straight Man into a TV show. For those who don’t know, Lieberstein is known for playing the hated HR Manager Toby Flenderson in the US version of The Office and has also written and directed several episodes.

In a curious twist of fate, Bob Odenkirk had auditioned for the role of Michael Scott, which was eventually played by Steve Carell. As the boss of Toby Flenderson in The Office, Michael Scott was known to despise him. Now, Odenkirk must be admiring the talents of Paul Lieberstein, who plays Toby and serves as showrunner on Lucky Hank. The show has garnered positive attention in its first few episodes, impressing viewers with its storytelling and performances.

After saying Goodbye to the lonely character of Saul Goodman which Bob Odenkirk played for years, he returned with a new character of William Henry “Hank” in the new series. The show deals with how Hank, the English Department Chairman at a poorly funded college in Pennsylvania, deals with a midlife crisis.

At the time of writing this article, Lucky Hank Season 1 is yet to premiere its finale. The finale will air on May 4, 2023. Here’s what we know about Lucky Hank Season 2!
