Sep 11, 2013  •  Post A Comment

After months of rumors, it is now official: AMC’s acclaimed drama series "Breaking Bad" will have a spinoff. The Los Angeles Times reports that the new show, "Better Call Saul," has received a green light — just as "Breaking Bad" is in its endgame.

The new show will focus on not-always-ethical attorney Saul Goodman.

"’Better Call Saul’ will feature Bob Odenkirk as Goodman in a one-hour series that is being positioned as a prequel to ‘Breaking Bad,’ focusing on Goodman before he became the lawyer for chemistry-teacher-turned-criminal Walter White," the Times reports. "AMC and Sony Pictures Television announced the deal in a joint statement."

The announcement did not offer additional details.

"Vince Gilligan, who is the creator of ‘Breaking Bad,’ has said in several interviews that he wanted to base a show around Goodman after ‘Breaking Bad’ ended its run," the report notes.
