After the mega success of AMC’s hit series Breaking Bad, creator Vince Gilligan announced that he would be at the helm of a spin-off, entitled Better Call Saul. The show fill focus on the life of attorney Saul Goodman (played by Bob Odenkirk), before his encounters with Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
Now, the much-anticipated new series has been confirmed to debut on AMC in November of this year, though a specific date has yet to be announced.
I was really happy yet a bit surprised when Gilligan first announced the spin-off, though I feel like with the way that Breaking Bad ended, this could be one of the very few ways something could successfully keep the story going.
I’m really looking forward to the series, which creators say will be “75% comedy and 25% drama”, just about the polar opposite of Breaking Bad’s approach.
