Better Call Saul

One of the biggest burning questions regarding the AMC Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul has been answered. It’s a prequel to Breaking Bad. And a sequel to Breaking Bad. And a part of Breaking Bad, all at the same time. Executive producer Peter Gould told the NY Daily News the show is going to have flexible timeline, which would allow the story to span decades including, yes, those where Saul (Bob Odenkirk) was working with Walter White (Bryan Cranston).

Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad

Desperate for a Breaking Bad fix? AMC has both good and bad news for you.

The network announced today that the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul has been delayed by several months, from late 2014 to early 2015. On the bright side, when the show finally does air we can expect more of it. AMC revealed that it has already renewed the series for a second season. For now, though, you’ll just have to settle for the first image from the set. More details and the first Better Call Saul image after the jump.

Breaking Bad - Saul Goodman

Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff show set around Bob Odenkirk‘s rakish, pragmatic, and charismatic lawyer Saul Goodman, is now the subject of a “go-ahead” licensing agreement between AMC and Breaking Bad producer Sony Pictures TV. Read More »

Badger Breaking Bad

The final season premiere of Breaking Bad left us with a lot to think about. Like, a lot to think about. But what makes the show great is not only the slowly unfolding mysteries, incredible performances, writing or white knuckle tension. It’s how creator Vince Gilligan chooses to sprinkle humor in with all of that. In Sunday’s episode, Blood Money, that humor was provided in the form of Jesse Pinkman’s drugged out friends, Badger (Matt Jones) and Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) discussing Star Trek.

You see, Badger has written a script for a Star Trek movie! He just hasn’t put it on paper yet. The Internet never disappoints, though, and it’s already been animated into a cartoon. Check it out below. Read More »

Saul Goodman Breaking Bad Bob Odenkirk

Just a few weeks remain until the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad begin to air on AMC. Fans across the world have begun to rewatch the previous seasons in anticipation. (New Yorkers can catch prior seasons of the show for free at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater from July 26-30.) There’s a good chance, however, that the world of Breaking Bad be closed for good come this fall.

For months we’ve heard show creator Vince Gilligan was considering a spin-off series focusing on Walter White’s crooked lawyer, Saul Goodman, memorably played by Bob Odenkirk. Gilligan admitted he wants to do the show, but has been unsure of how to go about it. Prequel? Maybe a sequel? In a new interview, Gilligan doesn’t answer that question, but does say he and fellow writer Peter Gould are moving “full speed ahead” with the project. They hope to pitch it to Sony in the near future. As of now, it’s Gilligan’s only planned post-Breaking Bad project. Read More »

Breaking Bad - Saul Goodman

Walter White’s torturous journey will come to an end one way or another this summer, as Breaking Bad concludes its fifth and final season. But one of his business partners could stick around AMC a little while longer.

The cable channel is reportedly eyeing a Breaking Bad spinoff series centered on Saul Goodman, the sleazy but competent lawyer played by Bob Odenkirk. This development comes months after series creator Vince Gilligan first floated the idea. At the time, he admitted that the potential project was nowhere near production. Now that Breaking Bad is on the verge of ending its acclaimed run, though, AMC is apparently willing to give it some serious consideration. Hit the jump to keep reading.
