"Better Call Saul" has officially been given a release date for its pending fourth season. AMC has now announced that the show will be returning on August 6, 2018 with the first episode picking back on at 9 PM EST while UK viewers can expect to catch each new episode the following morning.

In the new synopsis, AMC confirms that Chuck does indeed die, writing that “Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman.

"In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer — and his relationship with Kim — in jeopardy.

"Chuck’s death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill.”

Season 4 will be built out into 10 episodes, taking us one step closer to that Breaking Bad merger as Mike Ehrmantraut takes on “a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive’s newest (and most thorough) security consultant.”

The network adds: "It’s a volatile time to be in Gus Fring’s employ, as Hector’s collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos — tearing apart both Gus and Nacho’s well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.”
