Still at least seven months away from the premiere of the Breaking Bad spinoff, AMC announced yesterday that Better Call Saul has already been renewed. The much-anticipated first season which is now scheduled to debut in early 2015, will be followed by a thirteen episode second season in 2016. The Breaking Bad prequel will see the return of Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, and Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, who both played key roles on the popular and critically acclaimed drama series.
Also set to star are actors Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, Eileen Fogarty as Mrs. Nguyen, Michael Mando, and Michael McKean, with Saul Goodman creator Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan co-writing the pilot episode. Production is now underway.
