"Breaking Bad" may be coming to an end very soon, and that is certainly making fans around the world extremely depressed. All is not lost though as TIME revealed on Sept. 11, 2013, that a "Breaking Bad" spinoff titled "Better Call Saul" has been given the greenlight by AMC and was picked up.
Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, will star in his own series titled "Better Call Saul," and it is one that has been rumored for a very long time.
The new series will have Odenkirk playing Saul, the morally compromised lawyer who has represented two people that "Breaking Bad" fans are too familiar with: Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
Originally, AMC was not too keen on the idea of a "Breaking Bad" spinoff, but somehow ended up with it anyway. Several other networks toyed with the idea and showed serious interest in "Better Call Saul," but in the end, AMC won out.
It appears as if AMC had an exclusive negotiating period, but they actually let it expire.
Due to the great partnership and commitment that AMC had to "Breaking Bad," the time period was extended a little bit. That extra time was all that was needed as Sony and AMC struck a deal for the "Breaking Bad" spinoff.
There is no set air date yet for "Better Call Saul," which is planned as more of a prequel than a sequel.
