It’s only 9 seconds, but for “Breaking Bad” fans hungry for the much-anticipated spinoff series starring Bob Odenkirk, 9 seconds is enough.

Since the critically-acclaimed AMC series ended its five-season run last year, the network has been fairly quiet about plans for the spinoff series, which is set to star Odenkirk as the slimy lawyer Saul Goodman.

Few details have been released, other than that the series will reportedly focus on Goodman’s life and questionable career before his involvement with chemistry teacher-turned-drug-kingpin Walter White.

The clip ends with an air date of February, which cannot get here soon enough.

Judge Approves Place for Mel Reynolds to Stay While on Bond

FILE - In this Nov. 28, 2012 file photo, former Illinois Congressman Mel Reynolds announces that he's running for the 2nd District seat vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr., in Chicago. Reynolds has been indicted on federal tax evasion charges, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Chicago said in a statement Friday June 26, 2015. The indictment says the 63-year-old Chicago Democrat failed to file income tax returns for four consecutive years, between 2009 and 2012. Each count of failing to file carries a maximum one-year prison sentence. Reynolds resigned his Illinois congressional seat in 1995 after being convicted of statutory rape for having sex with an underage campaign worker. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green, File)
