AMC extends Breaking Bad spin-off

US cablenet AMC has renewed Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul for a second season before a single episode of the first has aired.

AMC and Sony Pictures Television (SPT) reached a licensing agreement for the series last year, with the first 10-part season now in production. The show had been due to debut in November but has now been pushed back until early 2015.

The series premiere will be directed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, with the second 13-episode run slated to air in 2016.

Better Call Saul is based on Breaking Bad character Saul Goodman, a sleazy lawyer who works for Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who begins producing drugs after being diagnosed with cancer.

The show is being developed by Breaking Bad writer Peter Gould, who created the character of Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk.

Breaking Bad ended after five seasons on AMC in 2013, having won 10 Emmys and becoming one of the most-watched shows on cable TV last year.

It also spawned a Spanish-language remake called Metastasis, currently being produced by SPT and Colombia’s Teleset for Univision.
