We've had to wait a little longer than planned for the fifth season of Better Call Saul (partly thanks to scheduling, and partly because of work on Breaking Bad sequel film El Camino), but it's all good, man. The show will be back in February.

The series, which follows the earlier days of Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), the man who will become slick hustler lawyer Saul Goodman, left the air with the end of season 4 in October last year. But US network AMC is planning to debut the first episode of the season on Sunday 23 February (behind The Walking Dead, which makes sense given the zombie show's behemoth ratings status, even now) and then the second on Monday 24 February, with Mondays becoming its regular slot.

Season 5 is not planned as the end of the show, but creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have said that it's closer to a finale than before. And according to star Odenkirk, the next season will be worth the wait. "It’s the best season we’ve ever done, it’s going to blow your mind, and I’m not kidding about either of those things," he told Deadline. "It’s f*cking awesome. I can’t wait."

US viewers can watch the teaser for Season 5 below, but "thanks" to geo-locking, it's not available in the UK yet.
