Spin-off centered on Walter White's dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman is set to debut in February
The official poster for Better Call Saul – the Breaking Bad spin-off series centered on Walter White’s dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman – has been released by US cable network AMC. Check it out above.
AMC has recently announced that it will air the first episode of Better Call Saul on February 8 – with episode two to follow 24 hours later on February 9. In the UK, the series will arrive on Netflix, also in February.
The spin-off series is initially set in 2002, six years before Saul meets Walt. When we meet Saul he’s actually called James McGill and hustling for supposed “legal” work with private investigator Mike.
Better Call Saul‘s first season will consist of 10 episodes, and AMC has already commissioned a second season comprising 13 episodes. The spin-off series is being steered by Peter Gould, one of Breaking Bad‘s executive producers, and Vince Gilligan, who created the award-winning drugs drama starring Bryan Cranston.
Earlier this month (December) AMC released a preview clip for Better Call Saul showing a disagreement between Bob Odenkirk’s Saul and Jonathan Banks’ Mike, a character who is also familiar from Breaking Bad. Watch it here.
