‘Better Call Saul’ to Premiere February 8

AMC has announced a premiere date for “Better Call Saul,” the highly anticipated spinoff to “Breaking Bad.”

Better Call Saul” will have a two-night premiere, with back-to-back episodes airing on Sunday, February 8 at 10PM, followed by Monday, February 9 at 10PM. The series will then continue to air Mondays at 10PM.

The series, which stars Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, is set six years before the ethically-challenged lawyer ever met Walter White. “Saul,” from Sony Pictures Television, is executive produced by Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Mark Johnson, and Melissa Bernstein. The first season consists of 10 episodes; the series has already been greenlit for a second season of 13 episodes.

“Known to ‘Breaking Bad’ fans as Saul Goodman, viewers will soon discover Saul wasn’t always Albuquerque’s top criminal lawyer,” said AMC president Charlie Collier. “Huge thanks to Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Bob Odenkirk, our partners at Sony and the entire team. We’re thrilled to be cooking together again.”

The premiere of “Better Call Saul” will follow the mid-season premiere of “Walking Dead,” which will air February 8 at 9PM.
