AMC has renewed “Better Call Saul” for a fourth season.

Exec produced by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, “Better Call Saul” stars Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill, the lawyer character introduced to viewers as Saul Goodman on the Gilligan-created “Breaking Bad.” The series is the third most watched scripted cable drama so far this year among viewers 25-54, averaging 1.98 million such viewers in Nielsen live-plus-three numbers.

“Supporting artists we respect and admire; delivering truly outstanding character development and nuanced dramatic twists and turns; continuing a legacy of bold creative choices; loving writing that is the best in the business: Truly, ‘S’all good, man’” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “Congratulations to Vince, Peter, Bob and everyone involved with ‘Better Call Saul.’ Bring on season four!”

“Better Call Saul” was nominated for seven Primetime Emmy Awards in 2016, including outstanding drama series and outstanding actor in a drama series for Odenkirk.

The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios. In addition to Gilligan and Gould, Mark Johnson (“Breaking Bad,” Diner, Rain Man) and Melissa Bernstein (“Breaking Bad,” “Rectify,” “Halt and Catch Fire”) also serve as exec producers alongside “Breaking Bad” alums Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison.

    This renewal delay was ridiculous regardless of execs leaving. I feel like AMC were trying to play mind games as if like should we really renew the third most popular show on cable or not? Thankfully they are not retarded. Praying for 5 seasons to balance Breaking Bad. Then I’ll buy the whole set of both shows on blu ray and binge ten seasons!!! :)

    En france on vous suit ! meilleur serie au monde avec breaking bad ! j’ai eu tellement peur!! vive l serie ! From Marseille, French. we love this show

  3. Chaplin and Keaton Were Overrated, Too...Did You See Me On Seinfeld? I Was Great says:

    It’s a good show, but I made the mistake of listening to Odenkirk on a NPR interview: an arrogant, smarmy douchebag. Had the nerve to say a legend like Bob Hope shouldn’t be remembered for anything. And almost 2 million people watch your little cable show every week, jerk-off. Let us know when 1 person out a 100 even knows who you are.

    Awesome show. Great characters. More Gus and mike please.

    Finally a show getting its due.

    Why the delay in announcing this I wonder. It is one of the very best shows on the air. Aren’t there going to be 5 seasons? If not they have to speed things up.

    • Ilan says:

      Because the two executives who ran Sony Pictures Television, the studio producing the show, left suddenly and so it took a minute to get things sorted out. The renewal was never in doubt, just delayed

  6. OMG, this delay on the renewal annoucement was killing me! Thank you very much AMC, a big hug from all Brazilians fans!!!
