AMC-TV says that "Breaking Bad" spin-off "Better Call Saul" will debut in February.

The network recently released a clip of sleazy attorney Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, arguing about the importance of always having a lawyer. After the clip the word "February" is shown.

The series will follow Goodman as he defends drug lords, petty criminals, and those allegedly injured in minor traffic accidents.

In "Breaking Bad," Odenkirk played the lawyer of meth lord Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston.

The New Mexico Film Office said in May that "Better Call Saul" would be filmed in Albuquerque.

“Bad” creator and “Saul” co-creator Vince Gilligan previously spoke about the show during the Television Critics Association press tour. “Saul” is already renewed for a second season and its first will have 10 episodes while the second will consist of 13, according to the Washington Post.

Actors Michael McKean, Michael Mando, Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks, and Patrick Fabian will star with Odenkirk on the show, according to the Washington Post.

As for whether “Saul” will take place during time periods other than its 2002 setting, Gilligan commented on the possibility during the TCA press tour, according to IndieWire. “We like jumping around in time," Gilligan said. "I would definitely point you in the direction that anything that's possible in the world of 'Breaking Bad' is possible."

Gilligan’s show “Bad” is nominated for various Emmy Awards this year for its final season, including Best Drama Series, Best Actor in a Drama Series (Bryan Cranston), Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Aaron Paul), and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Anna Gunn), among other nods. “Bad” will face off for Best Drama Series against shows such as fellow AMC program “Mad Men,” “Game of Thrones,” and “True Detective.” The Emmy Awards will air on Aug. 25.
