"Taste the Family!" is quite a weird tagline.

This story contains Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul spoilers

A new promo for the upcoming third season of AMC's Better Call Saul has arrived and it stars a character from Breaking Bad. The video takes the form of a commercial for Gus Fring's fast food chain, Los Pollos Hermanos, which he runs while secretly being a drug kingpin.

The suggestion here is that Better Caul Saul main character Jimmy McgGill (Bob Odenkirk) is going to meet up with Fring at some point in Season 3. According to Collider, this meeting was teased in Season 2. As we know from Breaking Bad, Fring will become a client of Jimmy's; apparently, Season 2 will reveal how and when they met.

A previous Better Call Saul Season 3 teaser showed Jimmy behind bars. Season 3 is expected to begin this Spring.

Better Call Saul was created by Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan after that show finished in 2013. The series charts the early legal career of Jimmy McGill and co-stars Jonathan Banks, who reprises his role of tough guy Mike Ehrmantraut. It also features Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, and Patrick Fabian. Odenkirk played the role in four seasons of Breaking Bad.

In November last year, AMC's Charlie Coller spoke about the decision to commission a third Season. "What Vince, Peter [Gould, co-creator], Bob, and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable," he said. "They have taken one of the most iconic, immersive, and fan-obsessive shows in television history and created a prequel that stands on its own.

"Watching Jimmy McGill's thoughtful, melodic, and morally flexible transformation into Saul Goodman is entertaining and delighting millions of fans, whether their starting point was Breaking Bad or not. This series has its own feel, pace, and sensibility and we can't wait to see what this incredibly talented group comes up with next in Season 3."
