AMC has made the call: The rumored Breaking Bad spinoff is a go.

The network just released a statement that confirmed a licensing deal has been reached between Sony Pictures Television and creator Vince Gilligan on a series tentatively titled Better Call Saul.

The one-hour drama will focus on Bob Odenkirk's lovable/shady attorney, Saul Goodman, and serve as a prequel, focusing on "the evolution of the popular character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer," according to AMC.

This set-up means that Saul's fate is wide open as Breaking Bad Season 5 heads to its explosive, death-filled conclusion.

Only three episodes remain of what many consider to be the best show in television history.
