When AMC announced the Breaking Bad spin-off, it was understandable for some fans to be hesitant about a show devoted entirely to a side character. But the show’s turned into an incredibly well-done drama on its own merits, and fans can’t wait for the next season. But apparently that wait won’t be too much longer.
Better Call Saul showrunner and co-creator Peter Gould broke the news on Twitter yesterday that season four of the show has begun filming. While that’s good news, that means the actual show will probably not air until later in 2018.

Fans of the show will remember that season three of the show ended with (SPOILER ALERT) Jimmy McGill’s (the future Saul Goodman) brother Chuck seemingly killing himself in a house fire. Season four will almost certainly deal with Jimmy coming to grips with his guilt over his brother’s death, as well as showing his journey towards becoming the Saul Goodman we know from Breaking Bad.
AMC and the show’s creators have not revealed how many episodes are left of Better Call Saul. The show has aired 30 episodes already, which is nearly half of the 62 episodes that Breaking Bad had.
And please, let’s get more scenes of Jimmy hiding in Omaha after the events of Breaking Bad! We need to know what happens to him!
