AMC to Air Live After-Shows Following Premiere, Finale of ‘Better Call Saul’

AMC is looking to build off the buzz it has generated for the second season of “Better Call Saul,” announcing on Friday plans to air live aftershows following the drama’s premiere and finale episodes.

Hosted by comic and super-fan Chris Hardwick, the hourlong talk-show “Talking Saul” will feature series cast, producers, celebrity fans and more reacting to and discussing the twists and turns of “Better Call Saul” and taking questions and comments from viewers. Series creators and executive producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould and star Bob Odenkirk (Jimmy McGill) will appear as guests on the show’s debut episode Monday.

The network, of course, has had a great deal of success with its post-“The Walking Dead” show “Talking Dead,” which will return Sunday at 10 p.m. following the zombie drama’s midseason premiere on AMC.

“Better Call Saul” debuted last February as the season’s No. 1 new series on cable among adults 18-49, adults 25-54 and total viewers. It now holds the title as the No. 3 highest-rated first season in cable history in the key demos. Its inaugural season garnered seven Primetime Emmy Award nominations (including outstanding drama series), won two Critics’ Choice TV Awards for best actor in a drama series and the TCA Award for Outstanding New Program, and was recognized by AFI as one of the top 10 programs of 2015.
