AMC issued a Season 3 renewal for its hit series Better Call Saul back in March, but we haven't had any updates on the show since then. Today we have the first four photos from this highly-anticipated season, which is slated to debut this spring on AMC. If you aren't caught up with Better Call Saul Season 2 yet, there will be SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
AMC has debuted these new photos, the first two of which reveals that fans will get another glimpse at Gene, the Cinnabon manager in Omaha who Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became after the events of Breaking Bad. Bob Odenkirk's Gene, is seen sporting some aviator sunglasses alongside series creator/executive producer Vince Gilligan in the first photo, with co-creator/executive producer Peter Gould also seen alongside Bob Odenkirk, Vince Gilligan and a makeup artist adjusting Bob Odenkirk's mustache in the second photo. The third image doesn't feature Gene from Omaha, but is just as intriguing.
The third image shows Jimmy McGill in the same room as his brother Chuck McGill (Michael McKean), with both appearing to be in good spirits. It's rather surprising to see both brothers in such a good mood, considering how their relationship was fractured towards the end of Season 2. The season ended with Chuck secretly recording Jimmy, where he admits to breaking the law. What's also interesting is that Chuck is seen atop a ladder in his office covered with foil. Chuck has claimed to suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity throughout the first two seasons, but he made some big strides in overcoming this mysterious affliction last season. It's possible he could be regressing back to his old ways.
This third photo also shows Jimmy holding a copy of The Adventures of Mabel, a children's fantasy novel written by Harry Thurston Peck about a little girl who gains the ability to speak with animals. It isn't immediately clear why Jimmy is holding this novel, but perhaps we'll find out more about this season soon. The fourth and final photo features Jimmy with Kim Wexler (Rhea Sehorn). There have long been rumors that the iconic Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) may surface on Better Call Saul at some point, but their returns have yet to be confirmed.
Aaron Paul has teased that he has discussed the possibility of Jesse Pinkman returning on the show, which is set six years before the events of Breaking Bad, but it isn't known if this is the season that Walter and Jesse finally resurface. It's possible that they could have tracked down Jimmy/Saul/Gene in Omaha as part of the show's flash-forward sequences, but that's only speculation for now. Take a look at the first four photos from Better Call Saul Season 3, debuting this coming spring on AMC.
