On Tuesday, the American television crime drama series “Better Call Saul” has been officially renewed for a third season in the basic cable and satellite television channel “AMC.” Season 3 will be produced by Sony Pictures Television and is set to consist of 10 episodes.
The announcement itself was made by Charlie Collier, AMC president. In his statement, he said, “What Vince, Peter, Bob and the entire production have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable. The crew had taken one of the most iconic, immersive and fan-obsessive (in the best possible way) shows in television history and bring into existence a prequel that stands on its own.”
He added that the show is amazing on its own, even though it was a spinoff from “Breaking Bad.” “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 TV series has its own feel, pace and sensibility and we are eager to see what this incredibly talented group comes up with next in the forthcoming season three,” he said.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Gilligan and Gould are slated to come back as co-showrunners of “Better Call Saul” season 3, Bob Odenkirk is going to reprise his role as well. The executive producers of the show are going to be Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz.
