The Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul, is set to continue on AMC and Netflix for a third season.
Season three will consist of another ten episodes – in the same vein as seasons one and two – with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould returning as co-showrunners. Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz are also set to return as executive producers.
AMC president Charlie Collier gave a statement about the show’s return this Tuesday (15th March 2016), stating: “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 out 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.”
Better Call Saul first aired on 8th February 2015, and has since been nominated for seven Emmy awards. Bob Odenkirk also won Best Actor in a Drama Series at the 5th Critics’ Choice Television Awards last year.
The second season of Better Call Saul is currently airing on Netflix, with new episodes added every Tuesday.
