Ursula Coyote/AMC(NEW YORK) — Better call Saul: his much-rumored Breaking Bad spinoff is becoming a reality.

AMC announced Wednesday it is moving forward with a show that will center around Saul Goodman, the attorney played by Bob Odenkirk on Breaking Bad.  Goodman represents Bryan Cranston’s meth-dealing character, Walter White, as well as Walter’s sidekick, Jesse Pinkman.  Aaron Paul plays Jesse.

AMC says the new project, tentatively titled Better Call Saul after the lawyer’s signature motto, will be a prequel that will “focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character” before he began working for Walter.

The cable network didn’t offer any other details, including a potential premiere date.

Breaking Bad ends its five-season run on Sept. 29.
