AMC’s unveiled this first official photo from the set of the Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul, featuring Bob Odenkirk as attorney Saul Goodman, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul series creator and showrunner Vince Gilligan (who’s also directing the first episode) and co-showrunner Peter Gould (he created the ‘Saul’ character). However along with this bit of Better Call Saul goodness from the Albuquerque set comes word that the series has been pushed back from a late 2014 premiere to early 2015.
In the good news department, the network has confirmed there will be a season two of Better Call Saul with an episode order that’s upped from the first season’s 10 episode order to 13. Season one will air during the first quarter of 2015 and season two will follow in the first quarter of 2016.
“Production on Better Call Saul is underway, and we could not be more proud of, nor more excited about, the work to date. 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,” said AMC president Charlie Collier. “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.”
