It sure sounds like Gus Fring might be breaking bad on "Better Call Saul."
Over the weekend, AMC announced that Season 3 will premiere Monday, April 10 at 10 p.m. A recent promo showed the return of Giancarlo Esposito's drug boss/Los Pollos Hermanos manager, and his role was further confirmed during the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour.
According to TVLine, Esposito joined stars Bob Odenkirk (Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman) and Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) on the "Better Call Saul" panel, and had this to say about his character's prequel return:
"We're at a time where he's a little more immature than where we left off. He's still finding his way. [...] [I]t would be wonderful for me to [see] the rise of Gus, because I think there's enough backstory within Gus to support that."
Yes, please. TVLine also pointed out that the logline for Season 3 -- "Mike searches for a mysterious adversary who seems to know almost everything about his business" -- could very well be Gus himself. And AMC also promised more "backstories" will be illuminated with "meaningful nods to the 'Breaking Bad' universe." Yeah, b*tch! They are ringing all the bells we want to hear, so far.
Here's a new sneak peek of the new season:"Better Call Saul" Season 3 starts April 10 on AMC.
