Better Call Saul season 4 premiere date finally official at AMC

Better Call Saul season 4One day after writing that Better Call Saul season 4 would be premiering in either August or September, we are now pleased to report that it’s going to be coming back on the earlier side of things.

Today, AMC officially confirmed that the series starring Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks will premiere on Monday, August 6 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time, where it will be a part of a lineup that also includes new series Lodge 49. Here is some of what the network also had to say as to what’s next for Jimmy McGill and many other notable characters:

In “Better Call Saul’s” fourth season, Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s (Odenkirk) transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer – and his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) – in jeopardy. Chuck’s (Michael McKean) death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (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 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’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.

This synopsis does seem to strongly hint at the direction and potential departures — in one way or another — for both Kim and Nacho as characters. We’ve long wondered if there is a way that Kim and Jimmy can find a way back to each other in Omaha after the events of Breaking Bad, but that may just be an idealistic view of things given that we’ve seen Jimmy’s good side and want redemption for him. The cold reality here may just be that such things are not quite possible.
