Breaking Bad” fans waiting eagerly for the AMC spinoff series “Better Call Saul” now have a little something to appease their curiosity about the show — a nine-second teaser trailer, which aired on AMC this weekend.

The new series, currently scheduled to begin in February 2015, brings back Bob Odenkirk as corrupt criminal lawyer Saul Goodman six years before he meets teacher-turned-meth-cooker Walter White.

A small-town lawyer in Albuquerque, N.M., Saul was then known as Jimmy McGil at a time when he was “searching for his destiny,” according to AMC.

The show will follow his transformation into the character who “Breaking Bad” fans know well as smooth-talking Saul.
