We aren’t exactly breaking this news, but we would be remiss if we did not comment. In case you have been living under a rock for the last day, we are here to let you know that the much anticipated Breaking Bad spinoff “Better Call Saul” is happening. We are pee-in-your-pants kind of happy about this!
The AMC PR Department released the following statement yesterday:
“AMC and Sony Pictures Television confirmed today that they have reached a licensing agreement for a spinoff of Vince Gilligan’s landmark AMC/SPT seriesBreaking Bad. As conceived, the new series is based on the show’s popular Saul Goodman character with the working title Better Call Saul. Plans call for Saul to be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer.”
Bob Odenkirk will be reprising his role as Saul (thank goodness) and Peter Gould, a writer and producer from Breaking Bad, will be spearheading the project.
