Better Call Saul season 1 may have yet to grace our screens, but the writers' room is already back in session.

Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul screenwriter Gennifer Hutchison tweeted about getting work underway on the next scripts, alongside a photo of Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut figurines.

The first season of the prequel is set to air on AMC on February 8, with a Netflix launch date worldwide expected to be announced sometime today.

Initial reviews of the first few episodes have been very strong, claiming that the show is successful in carving a new identity for itself in terms of tone and aesthetic rather than just trading off the successful style of Breaking Bad.

After months of teaser trailers and still shots of abandoned motel rooms, the show finally got a proper full-length trailer earlier this month.

While other glimpses we've seen focused on the show's comedic moments, this one had elements of its darkness, including a scene in which Saul is bound and gagged in the desert.
