Halfway through its second season, and AMC has officially renewed its “Breaking Bad” spin-off series, “Better Call Saul,” for a third season.
The network announced the renewal Tuesday for the Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould-created series, which has been a strong ratings performer for AMC, drawing in 2.7 million viewers among 18-49s in delayed viewing for its Season 2 premiere back in mid-February.
Taking place six years before the events of “Breaking Bad,” the show follows Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman who at the time is known as Jimmy McGill, the shady lawyer from the original series, as he struggles to make ends meet by hustling and scheming his way through life.
The third season will be comprised of ten, hour-long episodes like the previous two. “Better Call Saul” airs every Monday night on AMC.
