‘Better Call Saul’ opens fourth season on Aug. 6

Saul and crew will return to TV screens.

You just have to wait until Aug. 6.

AMC announced that the fourth season of the Emmy-nominated series “Better Call Saul” will begin at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 6.

It will air before the premiere of freshman series, “Lodge 49.”

“Monday nights have become a destination for our character-driven dramas, and we loved the idea of pairing these two series, which are similar in their darkly comedic tone and led by two charming yet complicated characters facing huge life moments,” said David Madden, president of original programming for AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “We’re excited to share the next chapter in Jimmy McGill’s journey towards Saul on one of television’s most celebrated shows, and to introduce viewers to the unfailingly optimistic underdog Dud, who’s looking for his place and his moral purpose in a cynical and confusing world.”

According to AMC, in the new season, Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s, played by Bob Odenkirk, transformation into Saul Goodman.

In the wake of his loss, McGill takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer – and his relationship with Kim, played by Rhea Seehorn – in jeopardy.

The death of Chuck, played by Michael McKean, deeply affects former colleagues Howard Hamlin, played by 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, played by Jonathan Banks, 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 Salamanca’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.

The critically acclaimed drama is executive produced by Peter Gould, Vince Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison.

The series recently garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over three seasons, has earned 23 Emmy Award nominations, three Golden Globe Award nominations, two Writers Guild Awards, three Critics’ Choice Awards, a Television Critics Association Award and two AFI Awards.
