A Sept. 11 report from US Weekly gives the details on the new series, which will spinoff after the "Breaking Bad" series ends. The hit drama is heading towards it's grand finale, but fans of the show will apparently be able to see the "slimy but lovable" lawyer known as Saul Goodman for the new series. Odenkirk and his Saul Goodman character started appearing in season 2 of "Breaking Bad" and then he joined the main cast for the past three seasons. "Breaking Bad" has been airing on AMC since 2008.
A press release was sent out by AMC and Sony Pictures on Wednesday, in which they announced there's a "licensing agreement" for the new show. It's also been heavily-noted that this new spinoff "Better Call Saul" will be a prequel to "Breaking Bad," rather than being based on events after the series ends. The series is expected to have what US Weekly refers to as a "bloodbath" within the final three episodes of the series.
"Breaking Bad" currently airs on AMC via satellite and cable providers around the United States, including DISH Network channel 131. There's currently no reported date for the first episode of the "Better Call Saul" spinoff on AMC.
