Netflix UK & Ireland says that it will stream Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul following its broadcast on US channel AMC at some point in "early 2014".

The new series follows Bob Odenkirk as loveable rogue lawyer Saul Goodman in the years before he became Walter White's attorney in Breaking Bad.

"Breaking Bad is widely recognized as one of the great TV experiences in this new golden age of television," says Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

"It has also proven very popular with Netflix subscribers around the world. This spin-off promises to continue its tradition of powerful storytelling. We are proud to be in business with Sony Pictures Television to bring Saul Goodman to our subscribers around the world."

Plot and storyline details about Better Call Saul are scarce. Bryan Cranston, who played chemistry teacher turned drug manufacturer White in Breaking Bad, has hinted that he could make an appearance as Walter in the new show.

It's also likely that the show will be drama-based, despite expectations that it would be a comedy.

Better Call Saul will also be available exclusively to Netflix subscribers across Europe and Latin America.
