“Saul” is sticking around.
The Emmy Award-nominated TV series got renewed for a third season by AMC.
The series is filmed and set in Albuqueruqe. It is housed at Albuquerque Studios.
It is a prequel to “Breaking Bad” and follows the transformation of Jimmy McGill into Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk.
Season three of the drama, produced by Sony Pictures Television, will consist of another batch of 10 episodes with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould set to return as co-showrunners.
The series is averaging 4.4 million total viewers when factoring in three days of DVR viewing, with 2.7 million among the adults 25-54 set and 2.5 million among adults under 50.
“What Vince, Peter, Bob and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable. They have taken one of the most iconic, immersive and fan-obsessive (in the best possible way) shows in television history and created a prequel that stands on its own,” AMC president Charlie Collier said Tuesday in a statement. “Watching Jimmy McGill’s thoughtful, melodic and morally flexible transformation into Saul Goodman is entertaining and delighting millions of fans, whether their starting point was Breaking Bad or not. This series has its own feel, pace and sensibility and we can’t wait to see what this incredibly talented group comes up with next in season three.”
