Before there was Saul Goodman, there was Jimmy McGill.

"Better Call Saul," the "Breaking Bad" prequel series, goes back in time to tell the origin story of the colorful tie-wearing man who we know and love as Saul. In a new teaser from AMC, Vince Gilligan and his fellow "Breaking Bad" producer and writer Peter Gould, give a brief glimpse into what the new series will be about. Gilligan says that "Better Call Saul" takes place "about half a decade before Walter White meets Saul Goodman" and raises the questions of how and why McGill turns into the crooked criminal lawyer.

In the first teaser trailer for "Better Call Saul," Bob Odenkirk's McGill reminded us of the importance of having a lawyer. Although the series premiere was pushed back to 2015, AMC has already ordered a 13-episode second season. The wait may be long, but we're pretty sure it will be worth it.

"Breaking Bad" favorite Jonathan Banks will be a series regular on the show and will be joined by new cast members Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn and Patrick Fabian. It's still unclear if Aaron Paul will return as Jesse Pinkman, but fingers crossed.

"Better Call Saul" premieres in February 2015 on AMC.
