Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman gets spinoff: “Better Call Saul”
“Breaking Bad” fans will be ecstatic to learn that there is a new chapter in the show after it ends: Saul Goodman is getting his own spinoff series, tentatively called “Better Call Saul.” Television’s funniest, slimiest fictional lawyer, Saul Goodman (neé McGill – he changed his name to seem Jewish), is returning to AMC with a one hour show that acts as a prequel to “Breaking Bad.”Rumors had been swirling for a while that Saul might get his own spinoff, but AMC and Sony Pictures Television confirmed today that they reached a licensing agreement regarding the spinoff. Don’t expect to see Walter White or Jesse Pinkman here, though. The show “will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer,” according to a statement by AMC. Bob Odenkirk, also of Adult Swim fame, will reprise his role as Saul.
