As the prequel to the critically-acclaimed AMC series 'Breaking Bad', 'Better Call Saul' has seen some incredible success, following the story of down-on-his-luck lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk); the man that would go on to become the crooked lawyer all 'Breaking Bad' fans know as Saul Goodman.

Through the three seasons that have aired to-date on AMC in the US and on Netflix across the globe, fans have seen McGill form an incredible bond with his colleague-turned-girlfriend Kim (Rhea Seehorn) and look after his brother Chuck (Michael McKean). He's been an incredibly loveable character and somebody you can root for, but that could all change as his transformation to Saul Goodman takes place.

Traditionally, spin-off series either fall into the disastrous ‘Joey’ category, or the 'perhaps better than its predecessor' group which is headed by 'Frasier'. So it’s no surprise that ‘Breaking Bad’ fans where anxious ahead of ‘Better Call Saul’s’ premiere. But if the series’ debut episodes are anything to go by fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief, as ‘Better Call Saul’ seems to hit all the right ‘Breaking Bad’ spots.

It’s happening! It’s really happening! Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul now has a trailer, but better still, it has a release date. AMC dropped the video yesterday, touting a February release date. So it won’t be long now, Breaking Bad fans.

‘Better Call Saul’ Gets Delayed And Renewed, But What Does It Mean?


Bob Odenkirk

For those excited for the upcoming ‘Breaking Bad’ spin off, ‘Better Call Saul,’ there’s some great news: it’s already been renewed for a second season before a single episode has even aired. Now, of course, some bad news, too: a single episode for the first season won’t premiere at the end of 2014 like previously planned. AMC now has it set for a debut in early 2015. "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,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, in a statement.

Better Call Saul
Can 'Better Call Saul' be as successful as 'Breaking Bad'?

Getting the launch it deserves is an understatement. Following up the success of ‘Breaking Bad’ is a difficult task in itself, but delaying the show’s release could negatively impact it if it doesn’t live up to expectations when it does eventually air. Luckily, ‘Breaking Bad’ mastermind Vince Gilligan, who is directing the pilot to ‘Better Call Saul,’ will take on co-showrunning duties with producer Peter Gould, and if that’s not a recipe for success, then what is? In addition to Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as Saul Goodman, you’ve also got Jonathan Banks making an appearance as Mike Ehrmantraut, while actor Michael McKean is set to play the role as one of Goodman’s attorneys.
