As the critically acclaimed series "Breaking Bad" comes to an end, AMC has confirmed the spinoff focused around character Saul Goodman, "Better Call Saul," will move forward. The show, named after Goodman's catchphrase, will retain Bob Odenkirk as the seedy lawyer who advises meth kingpin Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston.

The series of hour-long episodes will serve as a prequel to "Breaking Bad," before Goodman and White ever meet. "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan will "remain involved in the creative process of the spinoff," reports Variety.
