Breaking Bad fans were primed and ready to watch the AMC series spin-off Better Call Saul this November, but the TV network has decided to push its premiere back to early 2015.  However, that’s all the bad news I have for you today, since AMC also put in a 13-episode second-season order for the series, bringing the total to 23.  The first and second season of Better Call Saul will now team up with the network’s hit shows The Walking Dead and Talking Dead in early 2015 and 2016.  If that’s still not enough good news to make up for the delay, then perhaps the release of the first image from Better Call Saul will help to smooth things over.  Hit the jump for more and to check out the image.

“Production on Better Call Saul is underway and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date. 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.”

It sounds like AMC’s fall line-up is set, so we’ll just have to welcome the new series in the new year.  Take a look at the first image from Better Call Saul below:
