Good news for Netflix subscribers in Europe and Latin America who are awaiting the premiere of AMC's Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul with baited breath—according to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has picked up the series for streaming in 2014, and the full first season will be made available to customers after the season finale airs on AMC. Under this new deal, Netflix is officially the exclusive subscription service for Better Call Saul, as well as most of Breaking Bad.
"Coming off of the overwhelming success of Breaking Bad, we're excited to continue our collaboration with Vince [Gilligan], as well as Peter Gould, and that fans around the world will be able to embrace Saul," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. "We are proud to be in business with Sony Pictures Television to bring Saul Goodman to our subscribers around the world."
As previously reported, Better Call Saul will focus on Walter White's laywer, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in the years before he actually became Walt's lawyer, and it will serve as sort of a prequel to Breaking Bad. As of now, AMC plans to have the series on air between August and October 2014—meaning that by late 2014, the series should be available on Netflix for overseas customers through this new deal.
