LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Breaking Bad” might be coming to a close this season, but fans jonesing for another hit are in luck!
“AMC and Sony Pictures Television confirmed today that they have reached a licensing agreement for a spinoff of Vince Gilligan’s landmark AMC/SPT series ‘Breaking Bad,’” the network said in a statement on Wednesday.
“As conceived, the new series is based on the show’s popular Saul Goodman character with the working title ‘Better Call Saul,’” the statement continued. “Plans call for Saul to be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer.”
Actor Bob Odenkirk currently plays Saul on the hit AMC drama.
The series finale of “Breaking Bad” airs on September 29.
