The Breaking Bad spin-off, which airs on AMC in the US and Netflix in the UK, will return for 10 new episodes, following small time lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), six years before Walter White meets him as Saul Goodman. 

Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould will return as executive producers and co-showrunners.

“What Vince, Peter, Bob and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable,” said AMC president Charlie Collier in a statement. “They have taken one of the most iconic, immersive and fan-obsessive (in the best possible way) shows in television history and created a prequel that stands on its own.”
