Apple picked up the next show from breaking Bad and You better call Saul creator Vince Gilligan. The two-season Apple TV Plus show, which Apple is currently calling the “Untitled Vince Gilligan Project,” will feature Rhea Seehorn, who was nominated for an Emmy for playing attorney Kim Wexler in You better call Saul.

Apple isn’t revealing much about the series at this time, but Gilligan has shared a little hint of what we can expect. “After fifteen years, I thought it was time to take a break from writing anti-heroes…and who’s more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn?” Gilligan said in a statement. “It’s high time she got her own show, and I feel lucky to be able to work on it with her.” Gilligan will serve as showrunner and executive producer.

By picking up Gilligan’s new show, Apple can add another high-profile creator to the ranks of its growing Apple TV Plus library. Apple TV Plus already has quite a few hit series with big names attached, like Ted Lasso, Breakup, and The morning show, and if the quality of breaking Bad and You better call Saul are something to go by, Gilligan’s new untitled project has the potential to be another big draw for the service.
