“I think there’s a lot of things that go through her head when she realizes she’s going to lose Mesa Verde.” – Rhea Seehorn

“It’s a major blow, and I think that really shakes Kim’s confidence and I think that makes her doubt her choice, and what their future can be together, and separately within their practices.” – Melissa Bernstein, Executive Producer

“Some part of him has to believe that Chuck going after Mesa Verde, taking it away from Kim… is Chuck trying to hurt Jimmy.” – Bob Odenkirk

‘Better Call Saul’ Renewed for Third Season at AMC

Season 3 of the drama will consist of another batch of 10 episodes with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould set to return as co-showrunners. Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz will exec produce the show.

Saul, nominated for seven Emmys last year including best drama series, is averaging 4.4 million total viewers when factoring in three days of DVR viewing, with 2.7 million among the adults 25-54 set and 2.5 million among adults under 50.

“What Vince, Peter, Bob and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable. They have taken one of the most iconic, immersive and fan-obsessive (in the best possible way) shows in television history and created a prequel that stands on its own,” AMC president Charlie Collier said Tuesday in a statement. 


Here’s a video from the Peabody Awards, featuring the cast discussing their show, intercut with footage from Ray McKinnon’s acceptance speech.
