'Better Call Saul' Delayed to 2015, Second Season Ordered


Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman


Fans of AMC's beloved drama 'Breaking Bad' are going to have to wait a little longer than expected to return to Vince Gilligan's Albuquerque. AMC has announced that the 10-episode first season of prequel series 'Better Call Saul' will now not premiere until the first quarter of 2015. Previous reports had pegged 'Saul' as debuting in fall 2014.

However, with the delay comes an early renewal for a 13-episode second season of 'Saul.' Somewhat oddly, 'Saul' will be paired up with AMC's hit zombie drama 'The Walking Dead,', and air alongside it in both 2015 and 2016. Then again, why not pair up a new show with one of the most watched scripted dramas in all of television?

They should just put the tin lid on this turkey. Breaking Bad was genius this is just a cheap ca$h in.

It sounds like they saw what the first batch of episodes were like and decided to give it a bigger chance to achieve its potential. Pairing with Walking Dead could bring many younger viewers that didnt watch Breaking Bad but are now older enough to enjoy that level of content. It is a good time slot too. I don't know the production details, but if they got some of Breaking Bad's writters, at least the funny ones, this show could be much better than most lawer shows to say the least. The Saul character was kind of annoying, but that was from the Walter White's point of view. From the point of view of sleazy criminals, Saul was actually a skillful guy trying not to get caught by the police or killed by unreasonable criminal clients. He actually gave plenty of good advice to which Walter heeded to. And when they disagreed, it was because Saul was insisting on lower risks of anyone getting caught.

If this happens again, i know who to call! ;)

They're probably taking it safe by coupling it with The Walking Dead, otherwise the show could have been Dead Man Walking by itself in the Fall/Autumn.
