BREAKING BAD SPINOFF TV series Better Call Saul will be aired exclusively on Netflix in the UK following its broadcast in the US.

Those thinking of cancelling their Netflix subscription following the Breaking Bad finale might want to reconsider, as Netflix UK announced on Monday that it has secured exclusive rights to Better Call Saul.

The programme, a Breaking Bad spinoff that follows the story of mall based lawyer Saul Goodman in the years before he became Walter White's attorney will air on Netflix UK following its debut in the US, which is tipped to take place at some point in "early 2014".

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said, "Breaking Bad is widely recognized as one of the great TV experiences in this new golden age of television.

"It has also proven very popular with Netflix subscribers around the world. This spin-off promises to continue its tradition of powerful storytelling. We are proud to be in business with Sony Pictures Television to bring Saul Goodman to our subscribers around the world."

Sony Pictures Television president Steve Mosko added, "Coming off of the overwhelming success of Breaking Bad, we're excited to continue our collaboration with Vince, as well as Peter Gould, and that fans around the world will be able to embrace 'Saul'." 

Not much else is known about what we can expect from Better Call Saul, although Bryan Cranston hinted in an interview that he could make an appearance as Walter White in the show. It's also likely that the show will be drama-based, despite expectations that it would arrive as a comedy.

Better Call Saul will also be available exclusively to Netflix subscribers across Europe and Latin America. µ
