Netflix to Stream BREAKING BAD Spinoff Immediately After AMC Airing

Batter Call Saul on Netflix

Didn't get enough Breaking Bad? Then maybe Saul Goodman can help. Though the series that some have already proclaimed the best TV show of all time is over, those needing more can (kind of) get their fix when every episode of the Breaking Bad spinoff series called Better Call Saul begins airing on Netflix as soon as it concludes its run on AMC in 2014.

Though AMC has yet to announce a premiere date, the show which is to star Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, the strip-mall lawyer with questionable ethics, will likely finish its run on AMC sometime in 2014 and will be immediately available to binge watch on Netflix Instant Streaming for U.S and Canadian customers. Subscribers in Europe and Latin America will gain access to new episodes a few days after the U.S. broadcast.

The show is co-created and executive-produced by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and writer Peter Gould, and is said to tell the story of Saul Goodman in the years leading up to the day he met Walter White (Bryan Cranston), the high school chemistry teacher who turned to making Crystal meth to support his family.

Netflix Instant streaming, which allows subscribers to watch its programming on computers and wi-fi-enabled electronic devices, has grown tremendously in the last few years and promises continued expansion via its non-traditional model of making available all episodes of a TV series at once, rather thanĀ  stretching a series out over several months.

If you've yet to get on the Breaking Bad bandwagon, there's still time to catch up as Netflix currently carries the first five seasons of the Emmy Award-winning drama. So, climb aboard and discover the pleasures of bing-watching.
