AMC to debut 'Better Call Saul' with two-night event
Better clear your calendar: AMC has given Better Call Saul a debut date. On Feb. 8 at 10 p.m., the network will unveil the first episode of the Breaking Bad spin-off featuring Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman, the not-so-virtuous lawyer employed by meth king Walter White (Bryan Cranston). The following night at 10 p.m., the second episode will be unspooled. Subsequent episodes will air in the show’s regular Mondays-at-10-p.m. slot.
Created and executive-produced by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and co-executive producer Peter Gould, the hour-long show will chronicle the exploits of James McGill—who would later take the name Saul Goodman—before he teamed up with Walt, starting in 2002. The cast also includes Breaking Bad vet Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian, Rhea Seehorn, and Michael Mando.
Back in June, AMC announced that the 10-episode first season would launch in February, three months later than originally planned, and that it had already ordered a second season of Saul that is slated to hit the air in 2016.
