We’ve got bad news for Albuquerque’s favourite amoral attorney Saul Goodman… the best Breaking Bad villain Gus Fring is about to darken his door. 


That’s right, the chicken man with a dark past is back, played once again by the supremely talented Giancarlo Esposito, in Season Three of the Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul.

The latest season of Better Call Saul is set to premiere in April, but impatient fans can get a brief glimpse of the evil Los Pollos Hermanos manager in the season three teaser.

Check it out here…


In another short clip, which advertises the family-friendly side of his business, Fring welcomes children to his restaurant while smiling staff deliver delicious deep-fried chicken to waiting customers, completely unaware of Fring’s shady underworld connections.

Esposito had previously spoken about his reluctance to appear on the show comparing Breaking Bad to a wonderful souffle.

He said:

It’s like when you make a really good soufflé. It’s very, very difficult to have it rise without falling and also have it be remarkable.

So for me to try to re-create that soufflé without it falling was almost impossible.

Obviously things have changed for Esposito and he believes that Better Call Saul is a worthy successor to the show that made him a household name.

The showrunners had hinted at Fring’s involvement in season three at the end of second season, when a note was left on Mike’s car, with the word ‘Don’t’ menacingly written on it.

Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV. He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
