AMC has given us a great little tease of their upcoming Breaking Bad spinoff series Better Call Saul. The video may only clock in at ten seconds, but it's ten seconds of straight-up Saul Goodman, working his magic in explaining just how crucial a lawyer is when you need one.
The odd thing is, it isnít even Saul Goodman that people are interested in calling here. As revealed a couple of weeks ago by series creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, the southwestern criminal worldís go-to lawyer is going by the name Jimmy M. McGill when Better Call Saul begins its story.
AMC has released two new photos for their highly anticipated Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul, along with confirmation of the series regulars. One of the new photos gives us a look at Bob Odenkirk, who plays the titular Saul Goodman, and Michael McKean, whoís playing the role of Chuck.
Details about Better Call Saul have been kept under the rug and inside a desk drawer and behind a bookshelf, but Gould just confirmed that the series will definitely have a non-static timeline that will occur before, after and during the events of Breaking Bad. So does that mean weíll get to see Bryan Cranstonís iconic Walter White again?
There's good news, bad news and a picture for Breaking Bad fans. The bad news is, the Breaking Bad prequel spinoff series Better Call Saul won't be premiering this fall as originally planned. Instead, AMC's pushing the premiere off to 2015.
With three solid leads in Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks and Michael McKean, creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have signed on another talented trio in Patrick Fabian (The Last Exorcism), Rhea Seehorn (Whitney) and Michael Mando (Orphan Black). And it sounds like everyone may serve to make Saulís life a living hell.
It makes total sense that Better Call Saul is shaping up to be the must-see comedy of the year. And if it wasnít already, the recent addition of comedic maestro Michael McKean definitely puts it into the upper stratosphere.
One thing is for certain: we're all very, very excited for AMCís upcoming new series, Better Call Saul. Since the day the spin-off was announced, fans of Breaking Bad have gone off the deep-end of excitement. We here at Cinemablend know that it sucks to be out of the loop, so we've compile everything we know about your new favorite TV series thus far. Don't say we never did anything nice for ya!
Itís a tricky thing, bringing characters from a beloved series onto a different show within the same universe. But not once has that worry gone through our heads regarding Vince Gilliganís Breaking Bad spin-off series, Better Call Saul. Especially with the news that Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman. Now weíre just thinking about how we're going to lose our ever-loving minds in the best way.
One of the major up-sides to AMC's Better Call Saul series being a prequel is that it opens up the opportunity to bring back pretty much anyone from Breaking Bad at some point or another, whether it be for a cameo or a bigger arc in the series.

It probably wonít be long before we all start to go through serious Breaking Bad withdrawal. Oh, sure, the series wrapped up months ago, but the satisfaction of a drama well concluded will eventually wear off and those of us who anticipated the seriesí return each year will find ourselves reminding ourselves that Breaking Bad isnít coming back this year.
Better Call Saul has yet to air. In fact, we havenít seen so much as a teaser for the planned Breaking Bad spinoff, but that isnít stopping Netflix from calling dibs on the planned AMC series, ensuring that their U.S., Canadian, European and South American subscribers have access to it shortly after its first season run.
Itís December, which means another month has wedged itself between us and the end of Breaking Bad. Luckily, the separation from the show has given series creator Vince Gilligan, and soon-to-be showrunner Peter Gould time to talk a bit more in depth about their next venture: the spinoff Better Call Saul. And guess what? Thereís heaps to say about its potential future, which is slated to appear on our small screens before the end of 2014. Rejoice: itís all good!
So weíre all anticipating the future of AMCís Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, yes? (Obviously, or else why would you click this article?) Those of us waiting for another taste of the Albuquerque life are waiting with breath so baited that weíre positively flooded with its hypothetical potential. But any previous notions one mightíve had about Saulís structure are being called into question at this point, because nobody knows what the series is going to look like.
