First Images of Better Call Saul Season 2 Appear Online

Better Call Saul season 2 is still months away from its premiere, but we now have the first official images of the highly anticipates series.

Den of Geek published the photos on its website, including one image of Saul speaking two men in what appears to be his office (see above), as well as a second image of BCS frontrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould working on set. Granted, these photos don't provide much in terms of story, but it's still a pleasant surprise for all of us die-hard fans.

Originally premiering on AMC on February 8, 2015, Better Call Saul is a prequal spin-off to the network's critically acclaimed crime-drama Breaking Bad. Rather than centering around Walter White and his shenanigans in the drug trade, it follows the story of small-time layer James Morgan McGill, who simply goes by the name of "Jimmy." Better Call Saul takes place approximately six years after the events of Breaking Bad, long before Saul even meets Walter White.

To say the first season of Better Call Saul was a success would be an understatement. While some people had doubts about whether or nor a Breaking Bad spinoff would make it in the highly competitive world of network television, these doubts were quickly laid to rest. The season premiere set a new record for the highest-rated series in cable history, attracting a mind-blowing 4.4 million viewers among the 18-49 demographic.

AMC must have known that Better Call Saul was going to be a hit, because it took a rate leap of faith by ordering two seasons instead of just one. Most networks wait until the first season of a new show has finished before they decide whether or not to proceed with a second season. But AMC went ahead and ordered two seasons, an act that was recently confirmed by the network's president.

"We happily confirm that our initial Saul order is for two seasons and a total of 23 episodes. When introducing any series, especially one with the DNA of Breaking Bad, there are countless factors to consider in making sure the show gets the launch it deserves. We have a strong history with Vince, Peter, Bob, the studio and so many involved with this production; we are enjoying the process on Saul and all share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures," said AMC President Charlie Collier in a statement to LA Times.
