The new trailer for season four of Better Call Saul has dropped, and it looks both bloody and brilliant:
The prequel to Breaking Bad has proven to be a massive hit with fans of the original crystal meth-fuelled crime series. Set in the early 2000s, Better Call Saul charts the tale of James 'Jimmy' Morgan McGill, the conman turned small-time lawyer, who eventually takes on a new persona as Saul Goodman.
We found out last month that the new season would be arriving sooner than we'd thought, with the new batch of episodes kicking off on AMC on 6 August.
Vince Gilligan, the creator behind both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul also gave us another reason to get excited recently - revealing that the crossover between the two shows would be getting 'bigger and bigger'.
Talking to the Hollywood Reporter, Gilligan explained what viewers could expect from the new season, saying: "It gets darker, it gets richer. 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."
According to executive producer Melissa Bernstein, that character is Lalo, whose name is mentioned in Breaking Bad but - just like Niles' wife Maris in hilarious '90s sitcom Frasier - they never actually appear onscreen.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly on Breaking Bad's 10th anniversary reunion, Gilligan also said that he 'desperately' wants to bring Walter White and Jesse Pinkman into the world of Better Call Saul somehow.
"I desperately want to see both of them on Better Call Saul. Peter [Gould] wants it, the writers do, the actors do," Gilligan said.
"[It] wouldn't feel as satisfying if it was just a cameo or an Alfred Hitchcock walkthrough. I think we've waited long enough. We damn well better have a good reason for them to show up. I just hope we figure it out because I've got to hear, 'Yeah, bitch!' one more time."
As Gilligan explained, the actors in question are game, too.
"My attitude towards it is the same I had from when Better Call Saul first started," said Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse.
"If Vince decided to put Jesse in Better Call Saul, it's going to be for a reason, and that reason's going to be very satisfying for me. I trust in Vince. I don't think he would just do that to satisfy the fans. It would have a purpose, and whether or not he decides to find that purpose or searches for the purpose, I don't know. But if he does find that purpose, I'm happy to jump on board."
Brian Cranston (aka Walter White) agreed, saying: "If he asked, I would just say yes."
MAKE. IT. HAPPEN.
