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.
