Better Call Saul season 4 premiere date may be later than expected

Better Call Saul season 3If you’re interested in learning the Better Call Saul season 4 premiere date … well, let’s just hope that you are the patient type.

As of this very writing there is no firm premiere date for the show’s return on AMC, but a report from Deadline last month suggested that no new episodes of the show may premiere until we get around to September of 2018. That is much later than when season 3 premiered in the spring of 2017, which was in turn later than when the first two seasons premiered in the late winter.

Why so long between seasons? We imagine that there are some frustrations out there with the delay, but we don’t quite mind so long as there are going to be opportunities to see some great stories when the show comes back. Good things come sometimes for those who wait!

What corroborates the aforementioned Deadline report on the season 4 timeline at the moment is the fact that production is not underway at this point in New Mexico; it would have to be if the show was keeping the same timeline that they had for season 3, where filming actually started near the end of September. Because of this delay it means effectively that there is not going to be a new season of the show eligible for the Emmys next year and that stinks; granted, this show seems to be always a bridesmaid at the awards show and rarely the bride. (Walter White may have caught too many bouquets from the Emmys — we know we’re mixing metaphors slightly — and there may not be any left for Jimmy McGill.)

We do have a good feeling that when the fourth season does premiere there is going to be a lot of good content for the show to get to, starting with the resolution of one of the craziest endings in recent memory. It’s not a cliffhanger per se given that we know Chuck McGill is dead; however, we are still forced to wait in order to find out precisely what Jimmy is going to have to say about this.
