"Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul," will debut sometime in November, though a specific date wasn't announced, the Hollywood Reporter said Saturday.

Freshman series "Halt and Catch Fire" will launch sometime in the summer along with the fourth season of Western "Hell on Wheels."

Unscripted series "Game of Arms" is set to premiere 10 p.m. E.S.T. Feb. 25, followed by "Small Town Security" and "Freakshow."

Meanwhile, "Talking Dead," the Chris Hardwick-hosted talk show that follows "The Walking Dead" was renewed for a fifth season and will immediately follow the zombie drama's slot in October.
