As fans of good television know, AMC giveth, and AMC taketh away (actually, I don’t know if that’s true, but it’s a nice opening sentence for today’s news bit, so roll with me here, please). Those of us waiting to catch the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul got some good news yesterday… and some bad.
First, the good—yet kind of perplexing—news: AMC, despite not having aired a single episode of Better Call Saul, has already ordered a second 13-episode season of the show. So either AMC is really happy with the Saul scripts/meetings so far, or they’re simply hoping Breaking Bad’s popularity will give the series enough ratings momentum to justify a second season.
Now for the not-so-good news: those of you who were waiting to see the show premiere this fall will have to wait a little longer, as AMC has pushed back the premiere to early 2015. Back to rewatching Breaking Bad on Netflix and Blu-Ray until 2015, I suppose.
