The drama was the third most watched scripted cable series so far this year among viewers in the 25-54 age bracket. On average, there were 1.98 million viewers in the Nielsen live-plus-three numbers.
"Supporting artists we respect and admire; delivering truly outstanding character development and nuanced dramatic twists and turns; continuing a legacy of bold creative choices; loving writing that is the best in the business: Truly, 'S'all good, man'" said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, according to Variety. "Congratulations to Vince, Peter, Bob, and everyone involved with Better Call Saul. Bring on season four!"
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.
Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan helmed Season 3, alongside fellow executive producers Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz, and Gennifer Hutchison. The second season of Better Call Saul, one of the highest-rated dramas on cable, garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and three Critics' Choice Award nominations.
The series has also been recognized with an AFI Award for TV Program of the Year, a Writers Guild Award, and numerous award nominations from the Writers Guild, Producers Guild, Golden Globes, and Television Critics Association.
Co-created by Gilligan and Gould, the series stars Bob Odenkirk, as well as Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando, and Giancarlo Esposito.
