AMC has announced a two-night premiere for Better Call Saul, with the first episode of the Breaking Bad spinoff airing Sunday, Feb. 8, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the second on Monday, Feb. 9, at 10 p.m.. The series will then continue to air Mondays at 10 p.m.
Created by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and writer Peter Gould, Better Call Saul sees Bob Odenkirk reprise his role as Saul Goodman for a series that focuses on his life before he became Walter White's lawyer.
Odenkirk is joined by fellow Breaking Bad alum Jonathan Banks as Mike Erhmantraut, Michael McKean as Chuck McGill, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin and Michael Mando as Nacho Varga.
Here's the series' official description:
“Better Call Saul” is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny and hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside and often against Jimmy is “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut, a beloved character first introduced in “Breaking Bad.” The series will track Jimmy's transformation into a man who puts the criminal in “criminal lawyer.”
The first season will consist of 10 episodes, with the already-greenlit second season boasting 13 episodes.
