AMC viewers are in for double the treat on Sunday night. The network is set to air a special scene from the “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better Call Saul,” during “The Walking Dead” midseason finale episode.
Those patiently waiting for the spinoff series have been treated to numerous teaser videos, but what makes Sunday night special is that it will be the premiere of the first official clip from “Better Call Saul.” Series co-creator Peter Gould confirmed the video release earlier this week on Twitter:

The exclusive first look at the brand new show comes on the heels of the premiere date announcement. AMC revealed that the Bob Odenkirk-led series would air in a two-night event beginning on Sunday, Feb. 8, at 10 p.m. EST. The date also marks the Season 5 midseason premiere of “The Walking Dead,” which will air during its normal time slot at 9 p.m. EST. “Better Call Saul” will continue on Monday, Feb. 9, at 10 p.m. EST, which will be its regular time slot moving forward.
“Better Call Saul” will introduce character Jimmy McGill, or as “Breaking Bad” fans better know him: Saul Goodman. AMC president Charlie Collier explained in a statement from the network that viewers will get to discover that “Saul wasn’t always Albuquerque’s top criminal (criminal) lawyer.”
Odenkirk is not the only actor reprising his role from “Breaking Bad.” Those who watched the award-winning show will be reunited with Jonathan Banks, the actor behind fan-favorite Mike Ehrmantraut. New series regulars include Julie Ann Emery and Jeremy Shamos, who will be playing criminal couple “The Kettlemans.”
“The Walking Dead” midseason finale will air on AMC on Sunday, Nov. 30, at 9 p.m. EST. The first clip from “Better Call Saul” will air between 9 p.m. EST and 10 p.m. EST.
