HOLLYWOOD, June 19 (UPI) -- The first season of AMC's spinoff to hit Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, hasn't even aired yet, but already the network has ordered a second season of the series starring Bob Odenkirk.

The drama is slated to premiere in 2015, a full six months after AMC announced it will renew the series for a 13-episode second season.

"Production on Better Call Saul is underway, and we could not be more proud of nor more excited about the work to date. We join the fans in eager anticipation for this series, and today we happily confirm that our initial Saul order is for two seasons and a total of 23 episodes," said AMC president Charlie Collier. "When introducing any series, especially one with the DNA of Breaking Bad, there are countless factors to consider in making sure the show gets the launch it deserves. We have a strong history with Vince, Peter, Bob, the studio and so many involved with this production; we are enjoying the process on Saul and all share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures."

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is on tap to direct the first episode of Better Call Saul and is co-showrunning with Peter Gould.

The series focuses on the life of Saul prior to his run-ins with Breaking Bad's Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
