AMC have finally released information into the 2014 premiere date for ‘Breaking Bad’ spin-off show ‘Better Call Saul’ which will star Bob Odenkirk who will reprise his role.

It’s not just good news for ‘Breaking Bad’ fans however as dates for ‘Mad Men’ and several new shows have also been revealed by the network.

AMC announced earlier today that ‘Better Call Saul’ – the highly anticipated spin-off show to ‘Breaking Bad’ will make its debut in November though at present that was as specific as they could be for now.

‘Breaking Bad’ creator Vince Gilligan recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the show and while he won’t be running things he had a fair idea of what we might expect.

He said: “We think, by and large, this show will be a prequel, but the wonderful thing about the fractured chronology we employed on Breaking Bad for many years is the audience will not be thrown by us jumping around in time.”

“So it’s possible that we may indeed do that, and we’ll see the past and perhaps the future.”

The final season of ‘Mad Men’ will air on Sunday the 13th of April at 10pm says AMC in the announcement earlier today with seven episodes.

AMC are still to announce when the second half of the series will air in 2015 but we imagine it will be around the same time.

The network also announced a new war drama for the network called ‘Turn’ with a premiere airing on Sunday the 6th of April at 9pm.

The network have yet to announce a date for the ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ but we expect that to come through fairly soon.

AMC president and GM Charlie Collier commented on the 2014 AMC schedule and said: “We are extremely excited about the 2014 lineup.”

“Both the returning and new series reflect our commitment to serving passionate audiences with compelling, character-driven story-telling.”

Finally, though previously announced we thought we’d better mention the return of ‘The Walking Dead’ which will air on Sunday the 9th of February at 9pm for the second half of season four.
