Season two of ‘Better Call Saul’ will be shorter than originally planned

Netflix has the UK rights and will begin streaming season two in February

Netflix has confirmed the UK premiere date for season two of Better Call Saul.

The streaming giant will start showing season two on February 16, 2016, shortly after it begins on US cable network AMC. As with season one of Better Call Saul, Netflix will add new episodes on a weekly basis as they premiere in the US.

Netflix has also announced that season two will comprise 10 new episodes – the same number as season one, but three fewer than AMC originally ordered. Asked by a fan to confirm that the new season will be shorter than originally planned, the show’s co-creator tweeted: “No mistake! 10 big, big episodes!”

Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks are reprising their roles as Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut in season two, joined once again by Michael McKean as Chuck McGill and Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler.

Season one of the Breaking Bad spin-off series was nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards earlier this year, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series for Bob Odenkirk. However, it failed to win in any category.
