AMC announced on Thursday a premiere date for the fourth season of Better Call Saul: Aug. 6 at 9 p.m. It’s been a longer-than-usual hiatus for the Breaking Bad prequel that centers on the transformation of slippery lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), it has traditionally debuted in late winter or spring. The season 3 finale, which aired in mid-June, ended with the fiery death of Jimmy’s brother/nemesis Chuck (Michael McKean)
The fourth season of Saul will “catalyze” the transmogrification of Jimmy into the ambulance-chasing consigliere Saul Goodman, as seen on Breaking Bad. In the wake of Chuck’s death, Jimmy slips deeper into the world of crime, and it could jeopardize his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn), who finds herself at odds again with Howard (Patrick Fabian) in a legal battle that arises from the brothers’ war. Mike (Jonathan Banks) will become further ensconced in Madrigal, while the collapse of Hector (Mark Margolis) impacts the cartel as well as plans plotted by Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) and Nacho (Michael Mando).
Well, this makes me very happy. I still don't understand why season 4 got delayed. Does anyone know why?
I thought we might have to wait longer and August isn't too far away, but it is kind of annoying we have to wait so long between S3 and S4.
