Where once it surprised that Bob Odenkirk would return to AMC in spinning off Better Call Saul from Breaking Bad, the once and future Saul Goodman is firmly sticking with the network. Odenkirk will lead a new AMC miniseries based on New York Times journalist David Carr’s memoir The Night of the Gun, as written by The Shield alum Shawn Ryan.

Lest you think AMC had in mind to abandon the journey from Better Call Saul to Breaking Bad midway through Jimmy McGill’s transformation, there’s no need to call a new lawyer just yet. Bob Odenkirk will continue breaking bad through a third season of Better Call Saul, creative team and all.

Prequels often afford the ability to trace history of fan-favorite characters, even if certain backstories are best-left unexplored. Case in point, Better Call Saul has lent plenty of depth to Bob Odenkirk’s erstwhile Jimmy McGill, though the actor himself wants fans to “stop hoping” that Bryan Cranston’s Walter White drops by for an appearance.

Early into Better Call Saul’s inception, Bob Odenkirk puzzled fans with news that the prequel lawyer drama wasn’t actually a prequel at all, but a hybrid of events before and after Breaking Bad. Last night’s Season 2 “Switch” premiere briefly returned us to Saul’s post-Bad life as “Gene,” but writers eventually intend to tell an entire episode in the sequel Breaking Bad timeline.

Bob Odenkirk‘s Jimmy McGill is a character of continually shifting morals. In the first season of Vince Gilligan‘s ‘Better Call Saul’ we got to know the man who would go on to become ‘Breaking Bad‘s shady criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. Circa 2002 in Albuquerque, New Mexico Jimmy was a nobody working as a public defender, a one-man law firm who (mostly) tried to do the right thing. But the first season also hinted at his underlying con man persona, Slippin’ Jimmy, the nickname given to him as a kid for faking car accident injuries and conning drivers into paying him to keep quiet. In the season two premiere of ‘Better Call Saul’ we see even more fragments of a man riding ethical lines, further revealing Jimmy as the most complex character to emerge out of the ‘Breaking Bad’ universe next to Walter White.

Welp, if Walking Dead followup Talking Dead could birth the less-cleverly named Talking Bad, it was only a matter of time Better Call Saul would follow suit. So decrees AMC for Season 2 of the prequel lawyer dramedy, tapping Chris Hardwick for the even less-cleverly named Talking Saul.

Knowing the ending, or even the ending’s ending isn’t a spoiler when it comes to prequels, right? After all, we may know where Better Call Saul ultimately ends up, but the erstwhile Jimmy McGill still has a few lines to cross by the time Season 2 premiere. See for yourself as Bob Odenkirk returns to New Mexico in the first footage!

Prequels shouldn’t suck all the fun out of a given story, and AMC’s Better Call Saul went a long way in Season 1 toward eking out from Breaking Bad’s shadow. Case in point, Saul is front and center (with a fellow alum or two) in the latest colorful key art for the 2016 premiere of Saul’s Season 2 return.
