Breaking Bad prequel gets second season order

breaking-bad-saulThere must be a lot of confidence at AMC over the prequel for Breaking Bad as the network has already signed on for a second 13 episode season before Better Call Saul has even debuted on screens.

The series was originally supposed to premiere in November, but has been pushed back to early 2015, so we’ll have to wait a little longer to see everyone’s favorite crooked television attorney, which AMC swears is only because they really want to get the show right..

“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.”
