Gotta be quick, but news of Better Call Saul news has arrived from the ether, and it will leave you cold, shivering, naked and digging your own grave in the New Mexico desert.

The good news, as evidenced in a Tweet from co-creator Peter Gould, is that filming on season four is underway:

The clapperboard confirms that Minkie Spiro is helming episode one, while Marshall Adams is back to steer the show’s gorgeous cinematography.

All present and correct then? All ship-shape and Alberquerque fashion?

Hell no! I was expecting season four in April, just like last year and now it’s looking likely that we won’t find out what happened to Charles S. McGill until the autumn, so I’m driving out into the desert with a shovel in hand. (Not while I’m driving, that would be dangerous.)

It seems likely that Jimmy’s brother, Chuck did die in the fire at the end of a spectacular season three, so the new series will have to make do without its cornerstone – the relationship between the two brothers.

Whether Chuck’s death will go on to haunt Jimmy in a Hamlet’s ghost type way remains to be seen, but it could be the catalyst that sends him on the path to becoming Saul Goodman, “Criminal Lawyer”

No Better Call Saul release date has been mentioned by AMC (or Netflix) but if filming has only just begun, it won’t be before September.
