Comic-Con 2018: Better Call Saul Season 4 Trailer Gets Into Breaking Bad territory

The new season premieres in August.


Although Better Call Saul started as a spin-off from the hugely acclaimed Breaking Bad, over three seasons it has become an exceptional show in its own right. Season 4 is set to premiere this fall, and the first trailer has been revealed at San Diego Comic-Con.

The new season is set to pick up after the death of Chuck, the estranged brother of shady lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), and the trailer reveals that the show is getting closer to the events of Breaking Bad. Giancarlo Esposito will reprise his role as villainous Gus Fring, and there are appearances from Breaking Bad characters Lydia (Laura Fraser) and Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks). Check it out above.

Now Playing: Better Call Saul - Official Season 4 Comic-Con Trailer | SDCC 2018

In a recent interview with The Independent, creator Vince Gilligan confirmed that Better Call Saul Season 4 would have more in common with Breaking Bad than the previous seasons of the newer show did. "In season 4, it's very much like Breaking Bad," he said. "There's some great stuff coming up. As with [Breaking Bad], there's humour wherever we can find it provided it's legitimate and well-earned. But those moments of earning it are now fewer and far between."

Better Call Saul Season 4 premieres on AMC on August 6.
