'Better Call Saul' season 4 trailer: Jimmy McGill might be out of practice but he still has game
Jimmy is under a one-year suspension from practicing law and in joggers, both a dreadful combination for the smooth-talking lawyer who is close to turning into his alter ego Saul.
Jimmy McGill might be out of practice but he has definitely not lost his game. Almost a year after 'Better Call Saul' wrapped up its third season, fans are finally being treated to some insight into the much anticipated season 4 of the critically-acclaimed AMC drama. And going by the first glimpse, it seems the Jimmy-Saul transformation is inching closer by the day.
“Do you know why God made snakes before lawyers?” begins Jimmy (played by Bob Odenkirk), filling in all the sass in the trailer for the upcoming season of Breaking Bad prequel. “He needed the practice.”
Indeed after the events of the third season, Jimmy could very well do with some practice - after all, he is under a one-year suspension from practicing law and in joggers, both a dreadful combination for the smooth-talking lawyer who is close to turning into his morally-challenged alter ego, Saul Goodman. While Jimmy takes some time out though, things are heating up elsewhere, especially with a certain Mike who seems on the brink of running out of the little patience that he had.
“Why don’t you stop running a game on me and just tell me about the job,” Mike (portrayed by Jonathan Banks) is heard saying to someone, whose face is yet to be disclosed. The game is clearly on as the scene next cuts to a glimpse of Gus. Determined to have it all work out their way, both Mike and Gus are teetering around the edges ahead of season 4 of "Better Call Saul'.
In a more territorial tone than even, Gus declares, "I decide what he deserves.” He is seemingly referring to Nacho, who has entered his bad books, thanks to an attempted murder. Regardless, the plot is set, intertwined with drugs, blood money and all is set for a final showdown.
The fourth season, in more ways than not, is going to be richer and darker and on the "Venn diagram of 'Breaking Bad' and 'Better Call Saul'". But most importantly, the parts overlapping between the two breakout AMC series is going to get "bigger and bigger".
"In Better Call Saul‘s fourth season, Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s 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 — in jeopardy. Chuck’s 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," teases the official synopsis for the upcoming season of 'Better Call Saul'.
With season 4 on its way, co-creator Vince Gilligan, in the meantime, dished a bit about future plans, if the show were renewed again. “[We take things] very much season by season. And I’m less involved than I used to be. Peter Gould, my partner, who co-created the show is running the writers room, and they’re doing it the same way we did it on Breaking Bad, which is very much season by season. We really don’t know where it’s all going," he said.
The countdown to 'Better Call Saul' season 4 begins with the season premiere due on August 6 on AMC.
