The prequel to “Breaking Bad” hasn’t even premiered yet but “Better Call Saul” has been renewed for Season 2! This is good news but there’s a catch, though…

“Better Call Saul” gets renewed for Season 2 but the catch is fans will need to wait a little longer to see the first season. AMC announced the renewal of the second season of the new show but they also announced that they will be pushing the series premiere early next year (2015).

Vince Gilligan, “Breaking Bad” creator has now signed on as the show’s co-showrunner and he also directed the pilot of “Better Call Saul” together with Peter Gould.

The first season of “Better Call Saul” consists of 10 episodes while the second season will consist of 13 episodes and will premiere in early 2016.

AMC president Charlie Collier released the statement below which was published on E! Online.

“Production on ‘Better Call Saul’ is underway and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date. We join the fans in eager anticipation for this series and today we happily confirm that our initial Saul order is for two seasons and a total of 23 episodes,” said Collier in the E! Online report.

“Better Call Saul” is actually a prequel to “Breaking Bad” and it will follow the life of Saul Goodman before he got involved with Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

Jonathan Banks has signed on to do his role again as Mike Ehrmantraut and Michael McKean will play the role as one of Goodman’s fellow attorneys.

Well, it is such a bummer because the first season got pushed until early 2015 and we’re going to have to wait a bit longer than expected. But if you think about it, we are guaranteed two seasons of “Better Call Saul” and even if it hasn’t premiered yet, we have a good feeling that it’s a great series to watch.
