If you’re a fan of the epic show Breaking Bad, then you must already know about the Better Call Saul spin off. Now, Better Call Saul makes headlines due to good and bad news.
The bad news is that Better Call Saul was originally supposed to air this November, but AMC has delayed the premiere until early 2015. AMC does note that the Breaking Bad spin off will air alongside The Walking Dead. This means that Better Call Saul will most likely air when The Walking Dead comes back from their mid-season finale.
The good news, however, is that Better Call Saul has already been renewed for season two. What’s interesting about that is that the show is just starting to film season one. To start things, season one of Better Call Saul will only be ten episodes, but then season two will be comprised of 13 episodes. AMC has definitely put a lot of faith in the production of Better Call Saul.
AMC also confirms that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is currently directing the pilot, and will also serve as co-show runner on the series alongside Peter Gould, who is the Breaking Bad writer that actually created Saul Goodman. Gould of course isn’t the only Breaking Bad writer to return to the Better Call Saul series: Thomas Schnauz, Gennifer Hutchison, Bradley Paul, and Gordon Smith will return to the series as well. AMC President Charlie Collier also has released a statement about how excited they are for their new series:
” Production on Better Call Saul is underway and we could not be more proud of more excited about the work to date. We Join the fans in eager anticipation for this series and today we happily confirm that our initial Saul order is for two seasons and a total of 23 episodes. When introducing any series, especially one with the DNA of Breaking Bad, there are countless factors to consider in making sure the show gets the launch it deserves. We have a strong history with Vince, Peter, Bob, the studio and so many involved with this production; We are enjoying the process on Saul and all share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures.”
