You can Call Saul for another season.
AMC announced on Tuesday that it has renewed Breaking Bad prequel/spin-off Better Call Saul. The network has ordered a 10-episode third season of the drama starring Bob Odenkirk as troubled lawyer Jimmy McGill, who eventually will transform into Bad‘s shady Saul Goodman. Series creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould will remain as showrunners for season 3.
“What Vince, Peter, Bob and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable,” said AMC president Charlie Collier in a statement. “They have taken one of the most iconic, immersive and fan-obsessive (in the best possible way) shows in television history and created a prequel that stands on its own. Watching Jimmy McGill’s thoughtful, melodic and morally flexible transformation into Saul Goodman is entertaining and delighting millions of fans, whether their starting point was Breaking Bad or not. This series has its own feel, pace and sensibility and we can’t wait to see what this incredibly talented group comes up with next in season three.”
Better Call Saul earned seven Emmy nominations in 2015, including one for Outstanding Drama Series. Through the first four episodes of season 2, the show is averaging 4.4 million viewers, according to the network.
