Grab a writing utensil (or smartphone) and pull up your calendar -- AMC has slated a premiere date for "Better Call Saul."

The "Breaking Bad" spinoff, with Bob Odenkirk as shady lawyer Saul Goodman, will debut its first episode on Sunday, Feb. 8, at 10 p.m. ET. The second episode will air the following evening in the same time slot.

"Saul" will then continue to air on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET.

"This February, during AMC's first ever two-night series premiere event, we're going to introduce Jimmy McGill to the world. Known to 'Breaking Bad' fans as Saul Goodman, viewers will soon discover Saul wasn't always Albuquerque's top criminal (criminal) lawyer," said AMC President Charlie Collier. "Huge thanks to Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Bob Odenkirk, our partners at Sony, and the entire team. We're thrilled to be cooking together again."

Created and executive produced by "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan and writer Peter Gould, "Better Call Saul" focuses on Goodman before he became Walter White's lawyer.

In June, AMC announced the 10-episode first season of "Better Call Saul" would premiere in February. The show -- which also stars returning "Breaking Bad" star Jonathan Banks, as well as Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian, Rhea Seehorn, and Michael Mando -- has already been renewed for a second, 13-episode season to air in 2016.
