Saul is back in Albuquerque.

Production is underway for the fourth season of AMC’s drama “Better Call Saul.”

According to the New Mexico Film Office, production has begun around the city.

In fact, Patrick Fabian, who plays Howard Hamlin in the show, took to Twitter for a photo with Bob Odenkirk, Peter Gould, Michael Mando, Vince Gilligan and Rhea Seehorn. In the photo, Fabian says “The Gang’s (almost) All Here.”

The production will employ 150 New Mexico crew members, 50 to 100 principal actors and about 1,500 people for background talent, the film office said. It is housed at Albuquerque Studios.

“We’re proud to welcome this incredible production team back for a fourth season of ‘Better Call Saul,'” said Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “Over the last three seasons, Sony has proven to be an excellent partner with the state of New Mexico as we continue growing and diversifying our economy, and we look forward to the continued success of our partnership.”

“Better Call Saul” is a “Breaking Bad” prequel, focusing on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman before he became Walter White’s lawyer. The acclaimed series has been nominated for 23 Emmy Awards over the course of its run.

Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller welcomed the show back for its fourth season.

“We are big fans and appreciate not only the economic impact of the show, but also getting to play a role in what has become a cultural phenomenon,” Keller said. “Welcome back and thank you!”

The show is expected to be back on the air in September on AMC.

Also Thursday, the film office announced that New Mexico will share double billing with New York on the HBO drama series, “Succession.” Production will wrap at the end of January.

“Succession” follows the Roy family, Logan Roy and his four adult children, who control one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. It tracks family members as they grapple with what the future will hold as their aging father begins to take a step back from the company.

The series stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin

According to the film office, the production will employ 89 New Mexico crew members and about 75 people as background talent.
