AMC releases 'Better Call Saul' teaser, reveals February premiere

The 10-episode first season of #BetterCallSaul will premiere February 2015

Get your burner phone ready: The 10-episode first season of "Better Call Saul" will premiere in February 2015.

The highly anticipated spinoff of "Breaking Bad," which follows the antics of smarmy lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) before he met Walter White, was originally set for a fall rollout before being delayed to 2015 -- thanks, Vince Gilligan! On Monday, AMC revealed the premiere month at the end of a short promotion for the show.

The network that has an expertise in milking all things highly anticipated released an eight-second teaser--one that came equipped with a lot of hair on the younger Goodman.

The prequel, which has already scored a second season renewal, will take place in 2002 and will include some old favorites -- Jonathan Banks' Mike Erhmantraut -- and introduce us to new ones, including Saul's brother Chuck.
