‘Better Call Saul’ renewed for season 3; Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould staying on board

Better Call Saul season 2All fans of “Better Call Saul,” rejoice! You now know for certain that you’re favorite morally-ambiguous attorney is going to be around for a little while longer.

Today, AMC confirmed that the Bob Odenkirk series is going to be sticking around for one more season, with the network president’s Charlie Collier saying the following in a statement:

“What Vince, Peter, Bob [Odenkirk] 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. 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.”

The third season will run for ten episodes (which is really the ideal length for this show by our money), with Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan holding down the fort as showrunners in the same way that they have over the course of the series’ run so far. As for whether or not this will be the season he becomes Saul Goodman, or we get more of the story of future Jimmy a.k.a. Cinnabon worker Gene, that remains to be seen. There’s still much more story to tell in season 2.
