The “Breaking Bad” spin-off “Better Call Saul” has already been greenlit for a second season nearly a year before the series premieres in 2015.

Bosses at the AMC network have decided to give the show a 13-episode second season, due to air in early 2016.

“Better Call Saul,” a prequel series starring Bob Odenkirk as scheming lawyer Saul Goodman, was originally slated to premiere this November, but executives pushed its debut back to early 2015.

Production is already underway in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the Emmy-winning drug drama was also shot, and “Breaking Bad” creator and executive producer Vince Gilligan is slated to direct the season premiere.
