Not that it was ever in doubt, but AMC has made it official that it will bring back its acclaimed series “Better Call Saul” for a fourth season.
AMC announced that the “Breaking Bad” prequel will return in 2018. The network ordered 10 episodes for season four.
Season three ended in a cliffhanger, so the fates of some of the show’s key characters remain up in the air. But we can expect to see more of Gus Fring, played by Giancarlo Esposito; Mike Ehrmantraut, played by Jonathan Banks; and of course, Jimmy McGill, played by Bob Odenkirk.
Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, said in announcing the renewal: “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 [Gilligan], Peter [Gould], Bob and everyone involved with ‘Better Call Saul.’ Bring on season four!”
The cable channel noted that “Better Call Saul” has taken its place among cable’s highest-rated dramas.
“The ‘Breaking Bad’ prequel recently concluded its third season on AMC as the third-highest-rated drama on cable among adults 25-54,” AMC noted. “The third season averaged 3.6 million viewers per episode, including 2 million adults 25-54 in Nielsen live+3 ratings.”
