There's good news and bad news today for "Breaking Bad" fans. The bad news first. The upcoming spinoff series, "Better Call Saul," has been delayed. Originally planned to premiere this November, the new show will now air in 2015. The good news, however, is that AMC has already renewed the series for a second season! You can check out the first behind-the-scenes photo for the series below.

From AMC and Sony Pictures, "Better Call Saul" will take place prior to "Breaking Bad" and will feature the return of Bob Odenkirk's Albuquerque lawyer Saul Goodman and Jonathan Banks' Mike Ehrmantraut with a new role for Michael McKean. The first season is slated to run ten episodes with the second planned for 13.

"Breaking Bad" creator and showrunner Vince Gilligan is directing the "Better Call Saul" series premiere, and co-showrunning along with fellow "Breaking Bad" alum Peter Gould, creator of the Saul Goodman character.

"Production on 'Better Call Saul' is underway," says AMC president Charlie Collier, "and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date. We join the fans in eager anticipation for this series and today we happily confirm that our initial 'Saul' order is for two seasons and a total of 23 episodes. When introducing any series, especially one with the DNA of 'Breaking Bad,' there are countless factors to consider in making sure the show gets the launch it deserves. We have a strong history with Vince, Peter, Bob, the studio and so many involved with this production; we are enjoying the process on 'Saul' and all share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures."

In addition to Gilligan and Gould, several "Breaking Bad" writers have returned to work on "Saul," including Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison. Bradley Paul has also joined the writing team, along with Gordon Smith, who was a writers’ assistant on "Breaking Bad." "Better Call Saul" is executive produced by Gilligan, Gould, Mark Johnson ("Breaking Bad") and Melissa Bernstein ("Breaking Bad") with "Breaking Bad" alums Stewart A. Lyons and Schnauz as co-executive producers for Sony Pictures Television.
