"Breaking Bad" fans that have been anticipating for its spin-off can sigh in relief as "Better Call Saul" has been given a release date, finally. AMC announced the new drama series will premiere in America on February 2015.
In line with the upcoming two-night special debut, AMC also released a new trailer for the upcoming show. In the muted teaser, audience can have a glimpse of what to expect on the upcoming series. The short clip, which featured an abandoned motel room, gave a "Breaking Bad"-ish aura.
Fans have been eagerly waiting for a new and lengthy teaser after AMC has released a six-second teaser several months ago. The new teaser, titled "Tingle Fingers," satisfied the anticipating viewers as it "feels a bit like the opening of a Breakin Bad episode."
Known for its silent and mysterious setting and shots, "Better Call Saul" is indeed a "Breaking Bad" spin-off as its trailer showed "very blank shots of a ransacked motel room - cigar burning in an ashtray, high heels discarded on the floor and glass of scotch on the night stand."
"Better Call Saul," which stars Bob Odenkirk, will have its first episode on Feb. 8 and its second on the following night, Feb. 9. The new series has no U.K. release date yet though it is believed that the anticipated spin-off will be landing in Europe through Netflix after it premiered in the U.S.
President of AMC, Charlie Collier, has already confirmed the main man of "Better Call Saul" will be Jimmy McGill. "We're going to introduce Jimmy McGill to the world. Known to Breaking Bad fans as Saul Goodman, viewers will soon discover Saul wasn't always Albuquerque's top criminal (criminal) lawyer," the network chief said.
Like Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks will also be reprising his role as Mike Ehrmantraut, while new set of casts will also be featured in "Better Call Saul." These include Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando and Julie Ann Emery.
"Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan has also hinted that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul may also be featured in the upcoming spin-off series.
