The cast and crew of AMC's Breaking Bad prequel/sequel Better Call Saul made their way north this past weekend for San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) – and they brought a brand new trailer with them, ahead of the series return on Monday, August 6 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.
As we can see from the trailer, Jimmy's (Bob Odenkirk) not exactly curbing his "criminal lawyer" activities just because he's barred from a courtroom; Chuck's (Michael McKean) death will have lasting repercussions across the entire playing field; Mike (Jonathan Banks) continues down the slippery slop towards full-time enforcer; Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) is forced to make some different moves; and the Breaking Bad connections continue with a very ominous visit from Lydia (Laura Fraser).
"I get to sit up here and unabashedly say now that I'm a bit removed, this show is just so damn good. I could never sit on these panels and say that before because it sounded like a jagoff. Season four is just so good. Everyone on this panel did such great work. I can't believe the level of quality on this show. It gets darker, it gets richer. It's still got has funny in it. God forbid that would ever go away completely. But on the venn diagram of "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul"…the overlap in the center is getting bigger and bigger." – Vince Gilligan, Executive Producer/Co-Creator
See for yourselves what has Gilligan so excited by checking out AMC's Better Call Saul season 4 SDCC trailer below:
In Better Call Saul's fourth season, Chuck's death catalyzes Jimmy McGill's (Odenkirk) transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer – and his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) – in jeopardy. Chuck's (Michael McKean) death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill.
Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive's newest (and most thorough) security consultant. It's a volatile time to be in Gus Fring's employ, as Hector's collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos — tearing apart both Gus and Nacho's well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.
