AMC announces ‘Breaking Bad’ spinoff

Better Call Saul.

Well it looks like someone has been calling Saul. As AMC’s Breaking Bad enters its fifth and final season, it is likely that the franchise will continue, but in a different light.

It is rumored that a new series will come about, which will circulate around Bob Odenkirk’s criminal lawyer character, Saul Goodman.

No deals have been made, but it is assumed that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and series writer-producer Peter Gould will develop the series.

While Gilligan hasn’t confirmed any details, he did say,

“I like the idea of a lawyer show in which the main lawyer will do anything it takes to stay out of a court of law. He’ll settle on the courthouse steps, whatever it takes to stay out of the courtroom. That would be fun — I would like that.”

If you’re familiar with Odenkirk’s character, then you know he is quite the sleazeball. With all the action-packed drama in the show, he definitely brings some comic relief.

If the show is developed, it will most likely be a comedy; whether it will be a half hour or an hour long is yet to be decided.
