The “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better call Saul,” has had its release date pushed due to high demands for a second season.
With the finale of “Breaking Bad” leaving fans questioning what will happen to their beloved characters, this spin off could give them the answers they crave. Although not much is known about it, like whether Walt or Jesse will make any cameos, it will still be set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and will hopefully have more of the same characters, just in a different story line.
According to The Verge, AMC gave the first season a 10-episode run, and even though the first season has yet to release, they are already asking for a second season with 13 episodes. This is only getting fans more hyped up about the show, even if it means they will have to wait even longer to view it.
“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,” said AMC President Charlie Collier.
Vince Gilligan was meticulous in the details of Breaking Bad, and it’s comforting to see that so much care is being put into portraying the characters beyond the original series. The show will still have the same writers, making the transition of focus onto Saul’s character seamless.
Originally the show would have premiered earlier this year, but due to this change, its air date has been pushed to early 2015, and the second season will be released, roughly, a year later in 2016.
