The fourth season of the American television drama series Better Call Saul was announced on June 27, 2017. It will consist of 10 episodes, each running approximately 50 minutes in length, and will air on August 6, 2018.[1]






  • In the episode "Better Call Saul" of Breaking Bad, while Jesse and Walt have Saul on his knees in the desert, Saul is heard uttering “Oh, no, Lalo, please don’t do it!”.
    • Bob Odenkirk has vowed in an interview[3] that he hopes that the character of Lalo will be introduced in this season 4.
    • Wired magazine revealed that the crew spotted the name Lalo on a corkboard in the Better Call Saul writers’ room earlier this year. “We have to earn our Breaking Bad crossover moments on the show,” said Peter Gould.
  • In "Green Light", the fourth episode of Breaking Bad's third season, Saul says to Walt: "I caught my second wife screwing my stepdad. OK? It’s a cruel world, Walt. Grow up."
    • Vince Gilligan revealed in an interview[4] that this casual reference has posed a big challenge to solve in order to ensure a perfect coherence of the universe between Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
  • Thomas Schnauz teases about the fourth season: "We have more Nacho now."[5]
  • Season 4 will be the second (consecutive) season without co-creator Vince Gilligan writing, although he will continue to direct.[5]
