Starting in 2014...
Coming Soon reports that Better Call Saul will be available exclusively on Netflix for streaming members in Europe and Latin America shortly after it airs in the US, starting in 2014. Sony Pictures Television made the announcement today. In the US and Canada, the complete first season will be available on Netflix after its season finale on AMC. This makes Netflix the exclusive subscription TV service for the show, as it was in certain territories for Breaking Bad. The series will star Bob Odenkirk. It was co-created and executive produced by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan.
Here's a synopsis: "Better Call Saul" tells the story of mall-based super lawyer Saul Goodman in the years before he became Walter White's attorney. From parking tickets to mass murder, from slip-and-fall to bond fraud, Saul handles it all.
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said: "'Breaking Bad' is widely recognized as one of the great TV experiences in this new golden age of television. It has also proven very popular with Netflix subscribers around the world. This spin-off promises to continue its tradition of powerful storytelling. We are proud to be in business with Sony Pictures Television to bring Saul Goodman to our subscribers around the world."
Sony Pictures Television President Steve Mosko added: "Coming off of the overwhelming success of 'Breaking Bad,' we're excited to continue our collaboration with Vince, as well as Peter Gould, and that fans around the world will be able to embrace 'Saul'."
Breaking Bad, which ended its run earlier this year, is already available in all Netflix territories.
