Yesterday, the network announced officially that AMC will have a spin off show based around the character of Saul Goodman. The show, unofficially titled ‘Better Call Saul’ will be a prequel to the Breaking Bad series.
The network and studio said in a joint statement, ‘Plans call for Saul to be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character [played by Bob Odenkirk] before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer’.
I think there are other characters they can do a prequel on….but I’m sure this will be just as impressive.
Vince Gilligan will not be the captain of the new show, instead Breaking Bad writer and producer Peter Gould will be running things, and we’re sure he’ll do a fine job.
The Breaking Bad series finale will air Sunday September 29th 2013.
Until then, happy Breaking Bad Sundays!
