Return to the series that started it all as AMC airs Breaking Bad, starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, for five consecutive Saturdays leading into the sixth and final season of prequel series, Better Call Saul.

Telling the story of how smarmy lawyer Jimmy McGill evolved into Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), Better Call Saul has slowly unfolded Goodman’s story over the past six seasons. Breaking Bad viewers first met Goodman when Jesse Pinkman (Paul) told Walter White (Cranston) that he needed a “criminal … attorney.” Goodman led White to fixer Mike Ehrmantraut and to drug kingpin Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito). The stories of how Goodman came to meet those characters are also told in Better Call Saul.

Besides the episodes themselves, the Breaking Bad marathon will also feature exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews and bonus content, including “Easter eggs” and Breaking Bad trivia. It will also explore the many connections between the characters that appear in both shows.
