Gus Makes a Helpful Return in First ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 3 Trailer
There’s no need to save face – Gus Fring is coming back for Better Call Saul Season 3, and no chipper fast food veneer will mask the terrors we’ve seen that man inflict. See for yourself in a first official trailer for Better Call Saul Season 3, in which the Chicken Man might be the least of Jimmy McGill’s problems.
Following this week’s key art release, Entertainment Weekly caught the first official Better Call Saul Season 3 trailer, which features Gus’ footage debut just as we remember him. Elsewhere, it seems photos and teasers really weren’t kidding about Jimmy ending up behind bars. Will Saul be the one to emerge?
Ahead of its April 10 premiere, so reads Season 3's synopsis:
Season 3 follows the twists and turns of Jimmy McGill’s devolution toward Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman – Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyer. Six years before he meets Walter White, Jimmy is a more-or-less law-abiding, small-time attorney hustling to champion his underdog clients, build his practice, and somehow make a name for himself.
The acclaimed second season ended with a pair of cliffhangers. Determined to prevent his brother from practicing law, Chuck staged an elaborate con, secretly recording Jimmy’s confession to a felony. When Mike set his sights on sociopathic cartel boss Hector Salamanca, an ominous intervention stopped him from pulling the trigger, raising questions as to what other dangerous players may be in the game.
As the new season begins, the repercussions of Chuck’s scheme test Jimmy and Kim’s fledgling law practices – and their romance – as never before. This imminent existential threat presses Jimmy’s faltering moral compass to the limit. Meanwhile, Mike searches for a mysterious adversary who seems to know almost everything about his business.
As the season progresses, new characters are introduced and backstories are further illuminated with meaningful nods to the Breaking Bad universe.
Better Call Saul players have promised several familiar faces likely to pop up in Season 3, especially after the explicit reference to Esposito’s Breaking Bad guy. Creators Vince Gilligan and Gould had previously acknowledged fans figuring out their Season 2 title puzzle, while Bryan Cranston has also teased returning characters, and Aaron Paul may even have shot a cameo.
