AMC's Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul, will air in early 2015.

The network clearly has faith in the spin-off as it has already given the green light for a second series, set to land in early 2016.

The show will follow lawyer Saul Goodman before his involvement with Breaking Bad's Walter White and the first series will be made up of ten episodes while the second will feature 13 episodes.

Breaking Bad creator and showrunner Vince Gilligan is directing the series premiere, and co-showrunning Better Call Saul along with Peter Gould, creator of the Saul Goodman character.

“Production on Better Call Saul is underway and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date," said AMC president Charlie Collier.

"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.

“When introducing any series, especially one with the DNA of Breaking Bad, there are countless factors to consider in making sure the show gets the launch it deserves.

"We have a strong history with Vince, Peter, Bob, the studio and so many involved with this production; we are enjoying the process on Saul and all share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures.”
