Better Call Saul’s return will be seen by all Netflix fans in the UK just a few hours after it airs over in the US. The deal is a continuation of the one that was present throughout season 1.
In the deal between Netflix in the UK and AMC, each episode will be available hours after they air on AMC and presented in a weekly fashion on Netflix. This isn’t usually the way Netflix does things as it normally opts for adding the seasons in bulk. This deal is a replication of the Breaking Bad one that ran through its last season and also what we’re seeing with Once Upon A Time and Pretty Little Liars with new episodes arriving on the service every week.
Better Call Saul sees Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad have his own shot at the limelight at this spinoff series with much of the original cast and crew staying on with the project. It’s a very different series to what Breaking Bad was but still strong and has many of its own merits.
This news will be extra bitter for those Netflix subscribers in the US who haven’t even got season 1 yet as AMC holds it ransom on their services until a few weeks before season 2 starts.
