As widely expected, there will be a "Breaking Bad" spinoff built around the Saul Goodman character.
The series will be called "Better Call Saul," and it will air on AMC.
"Breaking Bad" is winding down its run; the series finale will be Sept. 29.
Sony Pictures Television and AMC described the series: "Plans call for 'Saul' to be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White's lawyer."
Bob Odenkirk has played Saul on "Breaking Bad."
AMC also has announced that it is canceling "The Killing."
