It’s barely enough to satisfy the craving, but Breaking Bad fans have been given a small fix in the form of a nine-second teaser for forthcoming spinoff Better Call Saul.
The clip, which aired on AMC in the US over the weekend, shows Bob Odenkirk’s errant lawyer Saul Goodman addressing a client: “Lawyers, we’re like health insurance. You hope you never need it, but man oh man, not having it? No.” Keen Breaking Bad viewers will notice that Goodman’s hair has more thickness to it than usual.
In July, a billboard appeared in Albuquerque advertising the services of “James M McGill”, Goodman’s alter ego as a younger man. Callers to the number given could hear Odenkirk’s voice on an answerphone message.
The teaser clip ends with a promised air date of February 2015. The show will air on Netflix in the UK.
