“Better Call Saul” Season 4: Everything You Need to Know

Bob Odenkirk in "Better Call Saul"

Better Call Saul Season 4 is finally on its way. Here is everything you need to know about the new season.

Season 3 spoilers ahead.


AMC has confirmed that season four will premiere this summer. The release date is August 6th in US.

We can reasonably expect the trailer pretty soon, given that it usually airs three months before the upcoming season premieres.


Bob Odenkirk will return as Jimmy McGill, along with Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler and Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut.

We will be seeing more of Giancarlo Esposito as Breaking Bad‘s freakishly calm and collected villain Gus Fring and the spooky Salamanca cousins, Leonel and Marco, will return with Daniel and Luis Moncada.

It’s very possible that we’ll see the return of more Breaking Bad characters such as Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis) and Lydia (Laura Fraser) who made appearances in season 3.

It has also been confirmed that a new “very important character” will be entered into the show. A man called Lalo is referred to in Breaking Bad when he first meet Saul.

“[Other than Lalo], we have a couple of new characters that we’ll be reintroducing to the world. We probably don’t want to say who yet, just to preserve the fun of that for the fans,” added executive producer Melissa Bernstein.


Below is the AMC  official synopsis for season four:

“In Better Call Saul‘s fourth season, Chuck’s death catalyses Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer – and his relationship with Kim – in jeopardy.

“Chuck’s death deeply affects former colleagues Howard and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill. Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive’s newest (and most thorough) security consultant.

“It’s a volatile time to be in Gus Fring’s employ, as Hector’s collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos – tearing apart both Gus and Nacho’s well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.”

We can’t wait!
