AMC have this week announced a delay in the production and broadcast schedule of the upcoming first season of their drama Better Call Saul and the commissioning of a second series of the programme. Currently filming over in the United States, the show in question will serve as a spin-off from the beloved cult smash-hit Breaking Bad (which is available to watch in its entirety on Netflix now, in case you've yet to experience the original series) and will see Bob Odenkirk reprise his role as corrupt barrister Saul Goodman alongside Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn and a host of other acclaimed guest stars.
Now, we'll make an honest admission right from the off - at the time of writing, we've only actually watched the first season of Breaking Bad as a whole, and as such have yet to come across the character of Saul in his initial guise. While we can't necessarily deliver a direct verdict on Better Call Saul's potential as both a standalone and narratively-intertwined entity, then, what's plain to see is that both the mother show and this titular character in particular have garnered more than enough appeal to warrant the spin-off's creation, and that AMC have gone ahead and announced a full second season speaks wonders about the project's potency anyway.
Better Call Saul will début its electrifying first season on AMC and Netflix in 2015 and will return for a second season of madcap outings in 2016.
