Fring Is Back, Better Call Saul Season 3 Promo
AMC’s Better Call Saul just dropped a promo with Giancarlo Esposito reprising his Emmy-nominated role as Breaking Bad‘s favorite bad guy Gus Fring. The promo is a mock commercial for Fring’s fried-chicken chain Los Pollos Hermanos.
While the Los Pollos Hermanos ad stops short of outright confirming Gus Fring’s presence in Better Call Saul season three, it seems like the strongest hint yet that the Breaking Bad character is on the verge of making his Better Call Saul debut. Speculation about Gus heated up last season when fans noticed the first letters of all the season two episodes were an anagram for “FRINGS BACK.” And the season two finale showed Mike Ehrmentraut receiving a mysterious note that may have come from Fring. Executive producer Vince Gilligan has acknowledged that those clues were meant to point at Gus, though he insisted it was “never the intention” to actually show Gus in season two.
