Saul Goodman has returned, but don't blink too fast or you might miss him.

AMC has offered up the first official, and incredibly brief, teaser spot for the new "Breaking Bad" spinoff series, "Better Call Saul."


The 10-second video made its debut Sunday night during an extended marathon of the prequel show's Emmy-winning parent series.

"Lawyers...we're like health insurance," a younger-looking Saul (Bob Odenkirk) says in the new clip, "You hope you never need it, but man oh man, not having it? No, phew."

Odenkirk will star as the title character in the upcoming spinoff, which will follow Saul's rise to notoriety as a seedy lawyer for criminals in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Odenkirk's "Breaking Bad" co-star Jonathan Banks will also reprise his role, as lethal drug gang enforcer Mike Ehrmentrout.

There's a possibility that other "Breaking Bad" characters could return in guest roles, such as Walter White himself, played by Bryan Cranston.

"Better Call Saul" will debut in February 2015 on AMC.
