'Better Call Saul' will come to Netflix if it exists at all
AMC hasn't actually produced a pilot for the "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul," nor has the comedy been ordered to series. However, Netflix announced this week that "Better Call Saul" will be featured on the streaming platform.
Per Netflix's press release, "Better Call Saul" will be available exclusively to streaming members in Europe and Latin America shortly after its airing in the U.S, beginning in 2014, while in the US And Canada, the complete first season will be available after its season finale on AMC.
"'Breaking Bad' is widely recognized as one of the great TV experiences in this new golden age of television," blurbs Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. "It has also proven very popular with Netflix subscribers around the world. This spin-off 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."
Again, though, it should be noted that AMC hasn't actually ordered the Bob Odenkirk centered prequel to series. But it sure sounds likely now, eh?
Netflix was given a lot of credit for the ratings boom experienced by "Breaking Bad" in its final season.
