AMC announced today that Better Call Saul has been renewed for a fourth season. The good news comes one week after the Breaking Bad spin-off wrapped its third season; one which continued its impressive run by averaging 3.6 million viewers and ranking as cable TV's third-highest-rated drama among adults 25-54.
While today's news confirms that Season 4 is indeed on the way, it was already quite clear from the events in Season 3 that the show has a lot more story to tell. Small-time lawyer Jimmy McGill is still hustling to make ends meet, and the seeds of his eventual transformation into Saul Goodman are just starting to be be planted.
The cable network has ordered another 10 episodes for Season 4 of Better Call Saul, with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould set to return as showrunners. Look for the fourth season to premiere in 2018.
