Here is some interesting news. Currently, the new series Better Call Saul (Breaking Bad spin-off) is filming in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The 10 episode Season isn’t due out until early 2015, but as Vince Gilligan and company proceed with production, AMC has made the impressive choice to order Season 2 with 13 episodes.

Wow! Quite a confident move if you ask me.

The announcement was broke by Deadline with a quote from AMC president Charlie Collier, who says, “Production on Better Call Saul is underway and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date.” He further adds, “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 all share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures.”

As Deadline points out, a lot is riding on the success of this show after many failed attempts like Below Winter Sun, The Killing, Halt and Catch Fire, and Turn. I have two theories myself why this decision was made: 1) They are betting the barn for the same magical following that Breaking Bad established, or 2) They know what they have and this show is going to rock our socks off! Either way, expect 23 episodes of the Breaking Bad  prequel starting in 2015!

What do you guys think? Is ordering a second season of Better Call Saul a hasty move? Chime in below!
