Better Call Saul has been renewed for a 4th season, its creators have confirmed.
AMC, which hosts the show in the US, today officially announced that the series would return again following fan concern.
The network said that the show would return for a 10-episode season in 2018. Charlie Collier, president of AMC, said that it was one of its biggest shows.
“Supporting artists we respect and admire; delivering truly outstanding character development and nuanced dramatic twists and turns; continuing a legacy of bold creative choices; loving writing that is the best in the business: Truly, ‘S’all good, man.’ Congratulations to Vince, Peter, Bob and everyone involved with ‘Better Call Saul.’ Bring on season four!”
Better Call Saul is a prequel series to Breaking Bad, with creator Vince Gilligan being the showrunner for both series.
It charts ‘criminal lawyer’ Jimmy McGill’s fall from a scrappy underdog with good intentions to lawyer for New Mexico’s most dangerous drug cartels.
The 3rd season of the show recently finished airing and left fans shocked as Jimmy slipped fully into his Saul Goodman persona.
The 3rd season also saw a return of fan favourite Gus Fring - drug kingpin and chicken shop owner.
The show has been critically acclaimed, with viewers praising its performances and plotting, which has retained the quality of Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul is aired on Netflix in the UK, with the first 3 seasons available to stream in full right now.
