“Better Call Saul” season 4 will be the darkest chapter yet in the life of Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk). The premiere episode showed how all the characters will deal with the death of Chuck McGill (Michael McKean), and this death will continue to have an impact on the rest of the season. In a recent interview, the producers and the cast members of the show teased some details about what the fans can expect to see going forward.

In an interview with EntertainmentWeekly, Executive Producer Vince Gilligan compared the show to a roller coaster ride, and season 4 to “that last terrifying drop.” “You’re not sure if the wheels are going to come off or not,” Giligan teased. The show’s Co-creator Peter Gould said that this is the “darkest, most dramatic season” of the show.

Lead cast member Odenkirk teased that some of the relationships on the show will “go to very fraught, dramatic places.” The actor also added that the events on the show will be “shattering,” “exciting,” and in some cases even “a little disturbing.”

One thing that the fans will notice right in the premiere episode is that the “Breaking Bad” part of the spin-off, which was in the background until now, will start to come into focus a little more. The premiere episode started with a very dramatic event related to the drug trade. Odenkirk teased that this part of the TV series is growing, and it will soon “swallow” “Better Call Saul.”

The TV series has been showing the slow decent of Jimmy. He will eventually become Saul from the “Breaking Bad” series, and this decent may be painful for the fans to watch.

Jimmy is currently suspended from working as a lawyer. He will find a way to make some money while he waits, and this is the time that he will meet people that are involved in the drug trade.
