AMC’s highly anticipated prequel spinoff to ‘Breaking Bad’ is starting to come into focus this week, with news that the two-night premiere of ‘Better Call Saul’ is set for February 8th and 9th. AMC will broadcast back-to-back episodes starting at 10PM, and then settle into the Monday’s at 10PM slot for the rest of the series.
The show stars Robert Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, the crooked lawyer that helped Heisenberg build his Southwest meth empire, and is set six years before Saul met Walter White. To go with the premiere date announcement, AMC released a new 30-second trailer that’s hints of dark things to come.

‘Breaking Bad’ creator Vince Gilligan is signed on as an executive producer for the spinoff, which is set in Albuquerque New Mexico. The first season consists of 10 episodes and will follow Saul on his rise to become the city’s top criminal lawyer.
Little details have been revealed about the supporting characters, but we’re hoping Huell Babineaux will make an appearance. AMC has already greenlit the show for a second 13 episode season.
