“Do you know why God made snakes before lawyers?” asks Jimmy McGill in the new trailer for season 4 of Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul. “He needed the practice.”
While brief in length, the trailer gets this point across rather succinctly with its rapid-fire shots of bullets, corpses and Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) who’ll have a bigger appearance following his return in the third season.
The third season of Better Call Saul ended on a startling note, and Season 4 will pick right up with the upsetting aftermath. The events of the new season will see the series get ever closer to the events of Breaking Bad, with the possibility of some well-known characters including Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) being introduced somehow.
Set in the early 2000s, Better Call Saul charts the tale of James ‘Jimmy’ Morgan McGill, the conman turned small-time lawyer, who eventually takes on a new persona as Saul Goodman. It is the third-highest-rated drama on AMC behind The Walking Dead and its spin-off series, Fear The Walking Dead.
The show is a spin-off prequel to Breaking Bad, and brought to us by Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan. Jimmy and Kim will face more drama in the fourth season, as will Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) and Nacho Varga (Michael Mando).
Better Call Saul season 4 will begin streaming on Netflix UK on the 7th. The streaming service has the rights to the show in the UK and Ireland, where new episodes will drop every Monday from 8am.
