The First Teaser For ‘Better Call Saul’ Season Four Has Arrived
| Last updated
Admittedly, the 15-second teaser gives away almost nothing, except that Jeremiah Bitsui, who played Victor in Breaking Bad, simply speaks into his phone to say 'now is not a good time'. Are you kidding? Now's the perfect time. We want to know more!

It was a sad day when Breaking Bad ended in 2013 after five mind-blowing seasons. And we've been thankful to Vince Gilligan ever since because the LAD behind the Walter White saga clearly hadn't had enough of the story - so much so, he created Better Call Saul.
Set in the early 2000s, the series documents the six years before Breaking Bad began and tells the story of James Morgan 'Jimmy' McGill, the con-man turned small-time lawyer who eventually transforms into the persona of Saul Goodman.
When AMC renewed Better Call Saul, there were hints that the series could start exploring the Breaking Bad years. Oooooh...
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Gilligan explained what viewers could expect from the new season of Better Call Saul.
"It gets darker, it gets richer," he said. "It's still got funny in it, but on the Venn diagram of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, the overlap in the center is getting bigger and bigger.
"There is a very important character - I'm not promising you ever saw this character, but there was a very important character nonetheless from the Breaking Bad era who we're going to meet this year."
So this could mean that it's a Breaking Bad character that's been spoken about but never seen...?
There's loads of speculation around who else may be returning to Albuquerque, with fans of the show hoping and praying to see firm fave Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman back on their screens.
The Express have reported that having him back in character could provide more context to Jesse's past.
Another possibility could include Hank Schrader, played by Dean Norris, who was a crucial part of the Breaking Bad dynamic.
But, according to executive producer Melissa Bernstein, the character is Lalo - whose name was mentioned in Breaking Bad but never actually made an appearance onscreen.
Whatever's going down here, we can't wait. With less than six weeks to go we're hopeful of a lot more clues, teasers and excitement.
