'Better Call Saul' Confirms Early 2015 Premiere With Teaser Trailer
Better Call Saul's delay won't be that long after all. After AMC pushed the Breaking Bad spinoff's November launch (and gave it an auspicious season-two renewal) earlier this summer, it's now set to debut in February 2015.
That little nugget of information was dropped in the first teaser trailer (below). The exact date will obviously reveal itself closer to the new year, but production on Saul is already well underway —with filming in Albuquerque pleasing fans with a billboard and co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould recently speaking with reporters about the decision to hold off a few months.
"We could have made the deadline, but I am slow as mud," said Gilligan, who noted that the same labor intensity applied to Breaking Bad will hold true with Saul. "I still feel I'm very slow for television."
Better Call Saul has done a remarkable job of lingering in the news, despite the space between the parent series' finale and the near seven months viewers will have to wait before it hits the air. A lot of that talk has lingered on the potential appearances from familiar characters. Bryan Cranston, for one, has pulled back a bit after first saying he'd likely make a cameo.
"I don't think we're giving anything away to say we're still figuring this out — including if and when we'll see some of these characters," Gilligan recently said. "We like nonlinear storytelling. I would point you in the direction of anything that was possible on Breaking Bad is possible on Better Call Saul."
