Better Call Saul has an official release date. The Breaking Bad spinoff, starring Bob Odenkirk as the loose-with-the-law attorney, will debut in the US on AMC on 8 February, with its second episode scheduled for the following night. It will then default to weekly instalments every Monday.
Following multiple short clips and a behind-the-scenes mini-feature, a new teaser has been released, continuing the highly stylised feel that has been suggested so far with a sleazy hotel room setting. AMC president Charlie Collier also confirmed that the series will focus on the lawyer’s pre-Goodman life as Jimmy McGill.
“This February, during AMC’s first ever two-night series premiere event, we’re going to introduce Jimmy McGill to the world. Known to Breaking Bad fans as Saul Goodman, viewers will soon discover Saul wasn’t always Albuquerque’s top criminal (criminal) lawyer,” said Collier.
The series will air on Netflix in the UK.
