I know I’m not the only one who’s been ridiculously surprised at the high quality of Better Call Saul. Back when the show was just a twinkle in Vince Gilligan’s eye, it was being pitched as a 30-minute sitcom of sorts that would be 70 percent comedy and 30 percent drama — the inverse of Breaking Bad. It only took one episode for audiences to realize that wasn’t the final product we ended up with.

As it stands, Better Call Saul is a slower, grittier, and more meditative version that may very well be even more serious than its predecessor. While other series may have taken only a season to show off the transformation of Jimmy McGill into the sleezy Saul Goodman, Better Call Saul has been almost glacial with its pacing…and I adore it.

In this latest trailer for the crime series, Saul Goodman looks like he is very nearly here. Check out the synopsis for the season:

“In Better Call Saul‘s fourth season, Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer — and his relationship with Kim — in jeopardy. Chuck’s death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill. While Mike takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive’s newest (and most thorough) security consultant. It’s a volatile time to be in Gus Fring’s employ, as Hector’s collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos — tearing apart both Gus and Nacho’s well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.”
