AMC is offering a double dose of its “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul” for its premiere.
The series, starring Bob Odenkirk, will receive a two-night premiere on Feb. 8 and 9 at 10 p.m., the network said Thursday.
AMC has also released a new teaser for the series.
Following its two-night premiere event, “Better Call Saul” will air Mondays at 10 p.m.
“This February, during AMC’s first ever two-night series premiere event, 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,” AMC president Charlie Collier said. “Huge thanks to Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Bob Odenkirk, our partners at Sony, and the entire team. We’re thrilled to be cooking together again.”
Set six years before Goodman met “Breaking Bad” meth kingpin Walter White, “Better Call Saul” follows Goodman’s evolution. When he’s first introduced, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny and hustling to make ends meet.
Also starring in the series is “Breaking Bad” alum Jonathan Banks, who’s reprising his role as Goodman’s “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut.
