In news everyone expected, AMC has announced a renewal of Better Call Saul. Season 3 just finished, with Season 4 coming in 2018. Charlie Collier, President of AMC, cheesily gushed about the renewal:
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.
Season 3 averaged 3.6 million viewers per episode, ranking number 3 in drama on cable in the 25-54 year old demographic.
If you aren’t watching this show, I highly suggest binge watching it, even if you haven’t seen Breaking Bad. I started watching the first few episodes of season 1, with Breaking Bad always something I was meaning to get around too. After the first few episodes I binged on Breaking Bad, and haven’t looked back. With that said, you don’t need to have seen Breaking Bad to enjoy this show. Extremely well written, directed and edited, this show sets the bar for character motivations, tension and a proper way to do an origin story that no one knew they wanted.
My favorite episode of this season was the courtroom battle between Jimmy and Chuck. Definitely felt like an Oscar winning courtroom film from the 50’s.[Deadline]
