Though the rumors have been floating around for more than a year, AMC finally confirmed that the Saul Goodman spin-off series Better Call Saul is a go. Don’t worry, spoiler sticklers, this show is a pre-quel so there’s still no telling if Albuquerque’s slickest legal mind will make it out of then next three episodes alice. According to Deadline:
Conceived by Breaking Bad creator Gilligan and series writer-producer Peter Gould, who created the Saul character together for a Season 2 episode written by Gould, the spinoff will be be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer, AMC said.
Bob Odenkirk’s performance has been an absolute bright spot of the series and I eagerly anticipated something a little lighter from the Breaking Bad creative minds. On a recent episode of the Breaking Bad Insider podcast, the casting director Sharon Bialy said her background is in comedy and that’s why so many great comedians have found their way on to one of TV’s darker shows. Does this mean we’ll see more from Huell and Kuby?
And maybe even this guy? One can hope.
