AMC Renews 'Better Call Saul' for Season 3

AMC has renewed its original drama series Better Call Saul for a third season, it was announced today by Charlie Collier, President, AMC and SundanceTV. The third season will again consist of 10 episodes, with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould returning as co-showrunners.

When factoring in three days of DVR viewing, the second season of Better Call Saul is averaging 4.4 million total viewers per episode, with 2.7 million in Adults 25-54 and 2.5 million in Adults under 50.

The drama stars Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando and Michael McKean.

Gilligan and Gould executive produce the series with Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz. Sony Pictures Television, Gran Via Productions, Crystal Diner Productions and High Bridge Productions produce.

"What Vince, Peter, Bob and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable. They have taken one of the most iconic, immersive and fan-obsessive (in the best possible way) shows in television history and created a prequel that stands on its own," said Collier. "Watching Jimmy McGill's thoughtful, melodic and morally flexible transformation into Saul Goodman is entertaining and delighting millions of fans, whether their starting point was Breaking Bad or not. This series has its own feel, pace and sensibility and we can't wait to see what this incredibly talented group comes up with next in season three."
