Good News Breaking Bad fans! The US TV network AMC has already ordered a second season of the Breaking Bad spinoff ‘Better Call Saul’…

Following on from the success of Breaking Bad, AMC has decided to order a second 13-episode season of ‘Better Call Saul’ before the pilot for the first show even airs. While that might come as good news to Vince Gilligan and Saul Goodman fans, there is a bit of bad news too…

The first season, which was due to debut later this year and includes just 10-episodes, has been pushed back to the first quarter of 2015. As for the second season, it’s due to air in the first quarter of 2016.

Speaking about the announcement, AMC president Charlie Collier said: “Production on Better Call Saul is underway and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date.

“We have a strong history with Vince, Peter Gould, Bob Odenkirk, the studio, and so many involved with this production; we are enjoying the process on Saul and all share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures.”
