The start date for season 3 of “Better Call Saul” has been set and several teaser videos (including a whole scene from the new season) have been released over the past couple of weeks giving subtle (and not so subtle) hints about what we can expect when the show returns in the spring.
I’ll save the best two for last, but let’s discuss all four of the clips that have come out recently for season 3:
Teaser 1: Booked
The last scene of season 2 was Jimmy’s brother Chuck recording him secretly as the younger McGill admitted to evidence tampering. So could this scene be after said tape is presented to authorities? Or was this scene just shot for teaser purposes to tell us that Jimmy will be spending season 3 in a prolonged legal fight?
Teaser 2: The Mugshot
This one serves the same purpose as teaser 1, but I did like the touch there at the end separating “criminal” and “lawyer” with a period.

Gus Fring is back!!! Unless some executive at AMC said “Hey guys, let’s create a commercial promoting the new season of “Better Call Saul” with Gus in it just to piss people off when they realize he’s not actually in the new season.” So in other words, Gus is back for season 3!!!!
Teaser 4: Jimmy and Kim
Here, we have our first full scene, not just some 15 second teaser clip. And based on what we heard, Kim has taken on a number of Jimmy’s clients. I can’t see this being based on anything other than an ongoing investigation into the evidence tampering at the end of last season. Also, it sounds like Chuck had another incident with his “condition” and Jimmy had to save the day for him again (“For ten minutes today, Chuck didn’t hate me. I forgot what that felt like.”)
But the best part about that last clip: the end when APRIL 10TH was listed as the premiere date for season 3!!! So now we know what day we have to look forward to for the return of Jimmy McGill, Mike, Kim, Chuck, and Gus as we continue to follow the journey from Jimmy McGill to Saul Goodman.
So these clips affirmed one thing we should already know (that Jimmy figures to be fighting the law throughout the third season) and confirmed what we’ve all hoped for (the return of Gus!!!).
