Everyone’s favorite lawyer from Breaking Bad, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), is getting his standalone series, Better Call Saul, renewed for a fourth season. AMC has ordered 10 episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter, for 2018.
AMC president Charlie Collier released a statement that reads:
“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.'” Congratulations to Vince [Gilligan], Peter [Gould, Bob [Odenkirk] and everyone involved with Better Call Saul. Bring on season four!”
I’ve seen a bit of Better Call Saul season one and thought it was fine, but it never hooked me. I’ve heard it’s a slower burn than most shows, so maybe I’ll revisit. I’d have lots of ground to cover, but luckily the show won’t go anywhere anytime soon, especially after it did numbers for season three.
The Hollywood Reporter said the series is the third-highest rated drama on cable among adults 25-54, behind The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. Also, the third season averaged 3.7 million total viewers.
Hey, I’d say that’s good enough for 10 more episodes, too.
