'Better Call Saul' is AMC's spinoff of the hit 'Breaking Bad', featuring Bob Odenkirk as the lawyer to Walter White and his band of meth dealers.

AMC released a short trailer for the show over the weekend, which ends with a premier date of February 2015.

Odenkirk told IGN that the spinoff could be either a prequel to the 'Breaking Bad' series or could pick up with Saul's life after Walter.

"Well, I’ve talked to Vince [Gilligan] and Peter [Gould], who are writing and creating the series, about this and I’ve said that a lot of people do want to see what happens to next to Saul," Odenkirk told IGN. "They’ve also talked to me about a mix of prequel and sequel."

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have not announced whether they will be appearing in the new show.
