Better Call Saul has been renewed for Season 4
AMC have ordered a fourth season of the popular Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul. Season 3 finished not long ago, with the show bowing out on the apparent death of one key character. The show will return for another 10 episode season, which will premiere in 2018.
This recent season saw Jimmy descend even farther down the slope towards becoming his infamous Breaking Bad persona, Saul Goodman. We saw Jimmy intentionally ruin the life of an elderly woman, for his own person gain.
Ratings-wise, the show finished Season 3 as the third-highest-rated drama for AMC among adults aged 25-54, with the season averaging 3.6 million views per episode.
Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, a friendly warning to bow out now if you want to avoid spoilers for the finale.
The key character mentioned above was of course Jimmy’s brother Chuck. The ending saw Chuck take his own life, via arson, but we don’t see whether he succeeds or not. When Vanity Fair asked Michael McKean (who plays Chuck) whether he’s definitely dead, he replied:
“I am. I know they want to bring me in for some flashbacks this coming season, but that’s kind of beside the point.”
It should be remembered that there are several characters in the show that we don’t see in Breaking Bad, so some of these characters are bound to die before the end of Better Call Saul (although there is also the possibility that they might simply be written out).
So being afraid for our characters is commonplace among fans and Kim Wexler’s fate is another key concern to mull over, now that we know what happened to Chuck. Could her future hold something that will weigh on Jimmy’s conscience as much as Chuck’s death no doubt will? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
