It feels like an age since the last season of the incredible, epic, amazing, thrilling Breaking Bad spin-off series, Better Call Saul…and that’s generally because it has been an absolute age.
The last incredible, epic, amazing, thrilling episode of season three (remember what happened?!) aired over a year ago. Oh, how we have truly missed one of the best shows ever written for TV. Ever.
AMC has released the first teaser as well as the first image for the new season, which predictably doesn’t reveal very much. However, the tone of the teaser does suggest that things are about to take a more violent turn, now that Jimmy / Saul (Bob Odenkirk) is more involved with the world of Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito). Show creator Vince Gilligan recently told The Hollywood Reporter that the overlap with Breaking Bad will increase with the fourth season.
“It gets darker, it gets richer. It’s still got funny in it, but on the Venn diagram of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, the overlap in the center is getting bigger and bigger … There is a very important character — I’m not promising you ever saw this character, but there was a very important character nonetheless from the Breaking Bad era who we’re going to meet this year.”

A new image of Rhea Seehorn‘s Kim Wexler was also released. Apparently, there’s been talk of a Kim spinoff in the future, which could definitely work once she and Jimmy go their separate ways, but in that same THR article Seehorn also said…
“[Season 4 will explore] her character’s relationship with Jimmy McGill, aka Saul Goodman, and how it has been affected by Chuck McGill’s (Michael McKean) suicide from season three. “What they did to Chuck, what Chuck did to himself, Chuck’s death, Jimmy’s reaction to it, what grief does to all of us…they have a huge impact. If you’ve ever been the person that’s supporting someone who is grieving, that has an impact on a relationship,” Seehorn said, adding that Chuck “really still looms large, particularly over this season.”
Better Call Saul returns to AMC August 6th at 9pm Eastern Time.
