Better Call Saul debuts February 8 with two-night premiere

The Breaking Bad spinoff "Better Call Saul" featuring lawyer Saul Goodman was announced way back in December 2013, and since then we've seen a couple trailers and brief TV spots surface, one of which revealed that the show would debut sometime in February. That hasn't changed, and now AMC has revealed exactly when we can expect to see it: February 8. Even better, the launch will happen as part of a two-day premiere, with the second episode airing a day after the first one.

The information comes from Entertainment Weekly, which is reporting that on February 8 the series premiere for "Better Call Saul" will air at 10PM on AMC. Then, the next night on February 9 again at 10PM, AMC will air the second episode of the season.

After the second episode airs, AMC will shift to the regular show schedule, with each following episode releasing at 10PM on Monday nights. For those wondering, a second season is already in the works and will be airing in 2016, something that was confirmed this past summer.

The series is set before the events that took place in Breaking Bad, showing character James McGill in his various life situations as he later becomes the sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman. The first season will be comprised of 10 one-hour episodes.
