Better Call Saul Gets the Green Light for a Second Season
Kyle Williams / 3 years ago
If, like me, you’re thinking “Wait, when did the first season come out?.” Don’t worry, it hasn’t even been aired yet over in the USA but the executives at AMC have just given the prequel series to ‘Breaking Bad’ the green light for another 13 episodes.
The prequel was due to air in November but it’s been pushed back until early next year, due to AMC saying it was because they wanted to make the series perfect.
“Production on Better Call Saul is underway, and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date,” network president Charlie Collier said in a release. “We join the fans in eager anticipation for this series, and today we happily confirm that our initial Saul order is for two seasons and a total of 23 episodes. When introducing any series, especially one with the DNA of Breaking Bad, there are countless factors to consider in making sure the show gets the launch it deserves. We have a strong history with Vince, Peter, Bob, 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.”
I can see why AMC are taking their time with it, after the enormous success that was Breaking Bad they have a very high standard to match. If they fail to do so then it will leave millions of fans disappointed. Get it right though and it will be back to sitting on the sofa watching countless episodes back to back!
Are you guys excited for Better Call Saul? Do you think they can pull it off? Let us know!
