The Saul Goodman comedy hour is a go.

AMC greenlit the “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better Call Saul,” on Wednesday after months of discussions between the network and creator Vince Gilligan. The series will focus on sleazy lawyer and fan favorite Saul Goodman, played by comedian Bob Odenkirk.

If you think Gilligan slipped up by announcing the spinoff before “Breaking Bad” ends in three weeks and somehow gave away part of how the series ends, don’t worry. Even if Saul Goodman perishes in the season finale in a blaze of gunfire (like what is probably going to happen with Hank and Gomez — let’s just be honest here), the new series will take place before Heisenberg stepped into Goodman’s tacky office.

The one-hour comedy will “focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer,” AMC said in a joint statement with Sony Pictures on Wednesday.

Let’s just also hope this means more Huell.
