“Better Call Saul” AMC’s “Breaking Bad” Prequel is a Thing and Its Happening

Breaking Bad Better Call Saul

Breaking Bad can be just as dramatic as it is sad, but there are few moments within the show that can be classified as comical. Of those brief comedic moments, Saul Goodman is always present. The popular lawyer has a penchant for helping creatures of the underworld, including the infamous Walter White hide money, get out of jail and generally skirt the law.

As we all look forward to the finale of Breaking Bad this Sunday, AMC has released this gem of a statement:

AMC and Sony Pictures Television confirmed today that they have reached a licensing agreement for a spinoff of Vince Gilligan’s landmark AMC/SPT series Breaking 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.

AMC has confirmed that Bob Odenkirk will star in the series and the Peter Gould, a writer/producer that have worked on all seasons of Breaking Bad will be “spearheading the project.”
