Not many spin-off shows are successful these days, and many don’t even get a full season order and are canceled after just 10 or 12 episodes. Fortunately, this is not the case for AMC’s hit series Better Call Saul. The Breaking Bad spin-off received nothing less than seven Emmy nominations, and had a second season ordered long before the first one aired.

When Better Call Saul returns in February of next year, we will finally see the first steps into Jimmy McGill’s transformation to become the Saul Goodman we all know from Breaking Bad.

Co-creator and executive producer of the show Peter Gould talked about this transition to TV Guide back in April: “Jimmy became a hero was the big surprise of this TV show for us. We love him so much."

The story takes place five years before Jimmy/Saul (Bob Odenkirk) finds Walter White. The guy who will become "Saul" is known as Jimmy, a lawyer in search of his destiny that's still living in his brother's shadow. Working with (and often against Jimmy) is the fixer Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character first introduced in Breaking Bad.

Season two will show the transformation of Odenkirk's character from "Slippin' Jimmy" to full-fledged criminal lawyer Saul Goodman (who's more criminal than lawyer).

"The conflict with his brother Chuck (Michael McKean), and the former partner of Marco blows (Mel Rodriguez), were the last straw to change the way that Jimmy sees life," explains Gould.

Star of the show Bob Odenkirk also talked about Jimmy’s decision in the finale. “He's going to cut loose and I feel great about it," he said to Hollywood reporter.

The second year of the show will have 10 episodes – and from what we know, all the main cast members will be back. It’s also likely that Stacey, Mike’s daughter in-law will return to the show, as well as Craig and Betsy Kettleman, and Tuco Salamanca. Nacho Varga will reportedly have a bigger role this year.

The premiere of the second season of 'Better Call Saul" will be February 15th on AMC.
