Peter Gould, who is credited with created the Saul Goodman character for Breaking Bad, is co-showrunner and executive producer with Gilligan on the new series.

“Production on Better Call Saul is underway and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date," AMC president Charlie Collier in a statement. “We join the fans in eager anticipation for this series and today we happily confirm that our initial Saul order is for two seasons and a total of 23 episodes.”

Collier continued, “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 so many involved with this production; we are enjoying the process on Saul and all share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures.”
