Vince Gilligan pulled off something amazing with Breaking Bad, not only did he wrap the show up under his own terms at the height of its popularity, but Breaking Bad actually managed to improve season after season. Following up one of the best television shows of all-time with a prequel seemed like a really bad idea to me, but Gilligan has proved me wrong as Better Call Saul has become a great show in its own right and a worthy companion to Breaking Bad. AMC has an equally high opinion of the show, which is currently in the middle of its second season, as they've just announced that Better Call Saul will be returning for a ten-episode third season.

Charlie Collier, president of AMC, had this to say:

What Vince, Peter, Bob 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.

Presidents of programming and producing for Sony Pictures Television Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg added:

It’s been an extraordinary show that lives up to its predecessor, Vince, Peter, Bob and the team are delivering brilliant storytelling and we’re proud to have AMC as our partner for another well-earned season.

In case you're not familiar with what Better Call Saul is all about, the show is set a number of years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) met up with Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) when he was known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny and hustling to make ends meet. The series chronicles Jimmy's transformation into the man who puts the "criminal" in criminal lawyer. Our own Chris Bumbray has been reviewing Better Call Saul since the very beginning, and you can check out all of his recaps/reviews right here!

Fantastic news!

I love Better Call Saul. I never really connected with Breaking Bad as I felt the storytelling was flawed (Walt was a crazy asshole from episode 1 so he didn't really seem to have much of an arc IMO) but Better Call Saul is one of the best shows on TV right now. So much better than BB IMO.

Great

This show is amazing. The pacing, the cinematography, the acting, the writing are all top notch. Stands toe to toe with BB. Gilligan and company are simply TV geniuses.

I think I still have a breaking bad hangover, since Mikes story lines have been a lot more compelling than Sauls.

I agree with you especially in regards to Season 2. Mike has held about 1/10th of Jimmy's (Saul's) screen time and he has definitely been way more interesting. I'm really hoping for a more eventful second half of Season 2 and I'd like to see Mike and Jimmy's paths intersect again like in Season 1. Not just Jimmy driving by him in the parking booth like last episode.

As much as I'm enjoying Saul surely they need to start wrapping this all up soon before the cast start to look far older than they did in BB?
