With the end of one of television’s best drama’s in sight, Breaking Bad‘s creator, Vince Gilligan, and co-conceiver of beloved character Saul Goodman, Peter Gould, are working on a spin-off of AMC’s Breaking Bad.  Set before the events of Walter White’s journey into cooking meth, the new series, currently titled Better Call Saul, will focus on Saul Goodman and have a lighter tone than its soon-to-end counterpart.  Bob Odenkirk will reprise his role as Saul Goodman in the hour-format series.  There’s currently no set date for a series premiere, but given the success of Breaking Bad, it’s likely we’ll be seeing this show sooner rather than later.  Better Call Saul has been, expectedly, licensed to AMC.
