Better Call Saul

Postby Prey » Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:37 pm

AMC has signed up for a Breaking Bad spinoff.

Better Call Saul, in discussions for months, will be a one-hour "prequel" to the acclaimed drama that will "focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White's lawyer," the network said in a joint statement with Sony Pictures Television. The show's title is the cheesy attorney's ad slogan.

White, of course, is the teacher-turned-meth-dealer played by Emmy-winning Bryan Cranston. Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, has been a regular character since the second season, and was created by Bad writer Peter Gould, who will produce the new show.

In lengthy discussions with creator Vince Gilligan, AMC spent time searching for the right tone for the new show, president Charlie Collier has said, while Sony privately mulled plans to shop it elsewhere if AMC had passed.

No word on when the show will hit the air, though it's not likely before the second half of next year.

It's still coming...

"One of the great things about having a time line which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before 'Breaking Bad,' during 'Breaking Bad,' and after 'Breaking Bad.' That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on 'Breaking Bad'."

Better Call Saul, commissioned for 2 seasons, will premiere on AMC in early 2015.

I desperately want this to be good, but following up on Breaking Bad is a terrifying prospect. I hope there aren't too many cameo moments just for the sake of it, e.g. Saul bumping into Walter in a supermarket, pre-Breaking Bad, and Walter being all Mr Nice Family Man, lols! Because he ends up cooking meth! Hahaha! Do you see? Because he's nice now but he's going to go bad!

Yeah, they shouldn't do that. Not more than once.

Yeah, 8th of February. I also didn't know that it's a prequel and Mike is a regular character, awesome.
