    AMC’s “Better Call Saul,” coming off one of the highest-rated rookie seasons in cable history, will return for season two in February, the network announced Monday.

    “Saul” will once again air Mondays at 10 p.m., starting Feb. 15. On its opening night, its competition will include the Grammy Awards on CBS, with the kudocast moving away from its traditional Sunday timeslot due to a holiday weekend and Valentine’s Day. (“Saul” actually opened opposite the Grammys in its rookie season, airing after “The Walking Dead” before moving to its regular Monday timeslot.)

    The prequel to “Breaking Bad” debuted last February as the season’s No. 1 new series on cable among adults 18-49, adults 25-54 and total viewers. It now holds the title as the No. 2 highest-rated first season in cable history among adults 18-49 and 25-54 since Nielsen began measuring Live+3 viewing; the only series rated higher were AMC’s own “Fear the Walking Dead” and “The Walking Dead.”

    In its inaugural season, “Better Call Saul” garnered seven Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including outstanding drama series, and won two Critics’ Choice TV Awards for best actor in a drama Series (Bob Odenkirk) and best supporting actor in a drama series (Jonathan Banks) and the TCA Award for outstanding new program.

    It had a slow start, but turned into a great series. I've been looking forward to season 2.

    I tried to get into this, really tried, as Breaking Bad was my favorite show, I just couldn't dig it though. Too slow for me

    Me and my husband watched 2 episodes last night. He thought it was funny. Me not so much, but I think it's going to be hit ot miss depending on the skits.

    It's not Breaking Bad, nor should it be. It stands on its own. Looking forward to it.

    Watched 4 episodes this weekend and thought it was great. But I thought mr show was the best sketch show ever, so I might be a little biased.

    I recently bought the Blu Ray & re-watched S1. With Hannibal gone (RIP), this is my favorite current show on TV. I'm so psyched for S2 to begin, can't wait to see his transformation into Saul.
    Most of all I think I'm most excited to see Mike's venture into the criminal underworld.

    I love this guy -- some timeline issues with "Breaking Bad," though. For example, Make's granddaughter Kaylee is actually older, though this is set in the past. But who cares?

    You just have to get it into your head that there won't be as much murder and mayhem.

    I'd like to see an episode with Danny, the guy who owns the laser tag place.
