“As much as we enjoyed the year-plus gestation period that included friends, fans, critics, and even family members telling us not to mess with the legacy of Breaking Bad, one of the most beloved series in television history, this was never anything we took even close to lightly,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “Happily, the first season of Better Call Saul delivered on every level imaginable, thanks to the continued brilliance of, and enjoyable partnership with, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. The broad and passionate response to their incredibly well-executed vision, and to the achievements of the entire writing team, cast, crew, our studio partner Sony, and of course, notably, the remarkable Bob Odenkirk, is so well-deserved. Better Call Saul has already established itself as one of TV’s top dramas, and we can’t wait to share season two as Slippin’ Jimmy continues his metamorphosis into full-on Saul-dom.”
