Netflix UK has released the first trailer for Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, which is set to premiere on streaming service on Monday February 9th.
Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, Better Call Saul is set six years before Saul Goodman (Odenkirk) meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill. The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “criminal lawyer”. Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando also star.
Netflix UK & Ireland acquired Better Call Saul in December 2013, shortly after the project landed a series order at AMC, as part of a wide-ranging global deal between Netflix and series producer Sony Pictures Television. The series had been widely expected to land at Netflix UK, especially as the streaming site was the exclusive UK home to Breaking Bad.
The first season consists of ten episodes and AMC, in what is a big sign of faith in the Breaking Bad prequel, has already renewed Better Call Saul for a 13 episode third season, which is set to air in 2016.
