Already renewed for a second season, AMC has described Better Call Saul as follows:

Bob Odenkirk, who played Goodman in Breaking Bad and stars as McGill in Better Call Saul, has said that to go back in time to Saul's origins required completely revisiting the character.

"I did kind of clean slate it and I took these scripts that Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould wrote and I sat with them," Odenkirk told Variety.

"I acted them out and thought about this guy. They added so many layers to the character. It's a different person."

Vince Gilligan, co-creator and executive producer of the show along with Peter Gould, said the writers were forced to figure out how to craft a new show and narrative around a character that fans already knew.

"The biggest challenge of all [being] that Saul Goodman as we know him on 'Breaking Bad' is very self-assured, very confident. And that can be a tricky thing, dramatically," Gilligan said.

"It really helped us to go six years in the past and see him before he was Saul Goodman, and see him as an underdog and struggling and really trying to make it," he added.
