"BETTER CALL SAUL" ENDS SECOND SEASON SOLIDIFIED AS ONE OF TELEVISION'S MOST ACCLAIMED AND HIGHLY RATED DRAMAS

SEASON TWO FINALE DELIVERED 4.4 MILLION VIEWERS, INCLUDING 2.6 MILLION ADULTS 25-54 IN NIELSEN LIVE+3 RATINGS

SECOND SEASON AVERAGED 4.3 MILLION VIEWERS AND 2.6 MILLION ADULTS 25-54 PER EPISODE IN NIELSEN LIVE+3 RATINGS

CONTINUATION OF THE JOURNEY FROM JIMMY MCGILL TO SAUL GOODMAN GARNERED SIGNIFICANT CRITICAL ACCLAIM, RETURNS NEXT YEAR FOR A THIRD SEASON ON AMC

NEW YORK, NY, April 25, 2016 - "Better Call Saul" capped its second season with strong finale ratings and broad critical acclaim, further establishing the series as one of television's top dramas. In Nielsen live+3 ratings, the "Better Call Saul" finale delivered 4.4 million viewers including 2.6 million adults 25-54. Season two averaged 4.3 million viewers per episode, including 2.6 million adults 25-54, making "Saul" a top 10 cable show in both adults 18-49 and 25-54.

The series, which focuses on the transformation of Jimmy McGill into Saul Goodman, garnered significant critical acclaim in its second season, and will return to AMC next year for a 10-episode third season.

"At AMC, we talk a lot about bringing fans programming that is pioneering, premium and popular. 'Better Call Saul' is the rare program accomplishing all three," said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. "Vince, Peter, Bob and so many other incredibly talented people responsible for crafting 'Better Call Saul' are marching us, with style, toward 'Breaking Bad.' So, to everyone who said that a prequel to 'Breaking Bad' was a 'bad idea,' we couldn't agree more. It's wonderfully 'Bad' and getting 'Badder' with each episode. Congratulations to all involved and thanks, as always, to the loyal fans who make these stories possible."
