Better Call Saul: Season One

Story by Jack Foley

BREAKING Bad spin-off Better Call Saul has been renewed for a third season by AMC.

The season will consist of another batch of 10 episodes with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould set to return as co-show-runners. Bob Odenkirk will also reprise his lead role.

The first season of Saul won widespread critical acclaim and was nominated for seven Emmys last year, including best drama series. The sophomore season is averaging 4.4 million total viewers when factoring in three days of DVR viewing.

Commenting on the renewal, AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement: “What Vince, Peter, Bob and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable. 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.

“Watching Jimmy McGill’s thoughtful, melodic and morally flexible transformation into Saul Goodman is entertaining and delighting millions of fans, whether their starting point was Breaking Bad or not. This series has its own feel, pace and sensibility and we can’t wait to see what this incredibly talented group comes up with next in season three.”
