Better Call Saul Season 4 releases two trailers


The Season 4 trailers of Better Call Saul tease that Saul Goodman is well on his way into the criminal underworld.

We’re getting closer. Not just to Season 4 of Better Call Saul, but to Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) transition into the man we’ll come to know as Saul Goodman. 

Season 3 saw the final nail in the coffin with the death of Jimmy’s brother, Chuck. It appears to be the last step in Jimmy’s delve into the shady lawyer we meet in Breaking Bad. 

Better Call Saul has released two trailers, the second one courteous of San Diego Comic-Con. There are plenty of teases for what the characters will be up to–mainly Jimmy. We see glimpses of him trying to strike employment deals with Mike Ehrmantrout (Jonathan Banks), the future hitman for Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), as well as doing whatever it takes to become a lawyer again.

More from AMC

The trailer also teases plenty more of Gus Fring as he continues his rise as a meth kingpin. Original Saul characters Nacho (Michael Mando) and Kim (Rhea Seehorn) will also have a big role to play.

You might also recognize Breaking Bad character Lydia (Laura Fraser) from the trailer. You’ll definitely recognize (as well as feel a shiver down your spine) when you see the Salamanca twins, also known as the “The Cousins,” hitmen who look to be stirring up plenty of trouble in Season 4.

Creator of both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, Vince Gilligan, recently told The Independent that Season 4 of Saul will be the most like Breaking Bad yet.

"“In season 4, it’s very much like Breaking Bad. There’s some great stuff coming up. As with [Breaking Bad], there’s humour wherever we can find it provided it’s legitimate and well-earned. But those moments of earning it are now fewer and far between.”"

A Walter White cameo perhaps? Don’t count on it. Not yet, at least.

Bob Odenkirk also teased more upcoming connections to Breaking Bad in an interview at San Diego Comic-Con:

"“If you love ‘Breaking Bad,’ you’re going to get to see that world expand a bit. You’re going to meet people who were referenced in ‘Breaking Bad’ who you’ve never met, but you heard their name.”"

The second trailer doesn’t offer up much more (other than a cool song) and a few different clips. The trailers show enough to get fans excited. Now we’ll all have to wait only a little longer for August 6th, when Better Call Saul returns for Season 4 on AMC.
