You could say it’s all good in the Breaking Bad universe. Better Call Saul, the hit prequel to the ridiculously popular AMC series, has just been picked up for a third season just five episodes into its sophomoric run. According to Deadline, the new season will feature 10 additional episodes, and creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are set to return as both executive producers and co-showrunners.
Set six years before Saul Goodman runs into teacher-turned-meth dealer Walter White, the show follows his come up from a small-time attorney named Jimmy McGil to the criminal lawyer we meet later on. Working alongside him is the "fixer" Mike Ehrmantraut, a former Philadelphia cop who we also first see in Breaking Bad.
"What Vince, Peter, Bob and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable," AMC president Charlie Collier said. "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 on its own."
The next episode airs March 21 on AMC. If you’re still behind, here’s a quick season one recap from Saul himself, Bob Odenkirk.
