Europe and Latin America stand to get the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul next year on Netflix, right after it’s been aired on AMC in the United States.
Digital Spy reports that, in the US and Canada, “the complete first run of Better Call Saul will be available to Netflix members after the season finale airs on TV.”
The entertainment website quotes Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos as saying: “Breaking Bad is widely recognised as one of the great TV experiences in this new golden age of television
“It has also proven very popular with Netflix subscribers around the world. This spinoff promises to continue its tradition of powerful storytelling. We are proud to be in business with Sony Pictures Television to bring Saul Goodman to our subscribers around the world.”
Breaking Bad – for the uninitiated – is an American crime drama featuring a high-school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer, and turns to crime to safeguard his family’s future once he’s died.
In Canada and the US, the series premiered at the beginning of 2008, with the series finale airing in September 2013 and attracting 10,280,000 viewers.
Better Call Saul features the main character, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), and is a prequel about Saul before he became the lawyer for Walter White (Bryan Cranston).
“The show,” continues Digital Spy, has been co-created and executive produced by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and stars Bob Odenkirk as mall-based super lawyer Saul Goodman in the years before he became Walter White’s attorney.”
And Sony Pictures Television’s president, Steve Mosko, added: “Coming off of the overwhelming success of Breaking Bad, we’re excited to continue our collaboration with Vince, as well as Peter Gould, and that fans around the world will be able to embrace Saul.”
