AMC has officially announced that they have decided to continue their journey into the world of their wildly popular series Breaking Bad. The world has been counting the down the days until the shows end on September 29th with bitter-sweet anticipation. Now that pain will be dulled, if only a bit, as the follow-up series has been agreed upon, and will be titled “Better Call Saul”.
An hour-long series that serves as a prequel to Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul obviously follows the story of Saul Goodman, the lawyer of Bryan Cranston’s Walter White, the teacher-turned-meth-dealer that has been the star of the series throughout it’s five-season run on AMC. No dates have been announced for the shows premier, nor word on when the show will begin production, but fans should expect it sometime late in 2014, as outside of Bob Odenkirk reprising the titular role, principal casting hasn’t begun yet.
Better Call Saul is set in a time “before the character ever became Walter White’s lawyer”, according to creator Vince Gilligan, so it currently seems unlikely Cranston will return in any form of a cameo role, at least not until late in the series run, when it may begin to tie into the early story of Breaking Bad.
