“Better Call Saul” season 3 has finally confirmed the long-speculated news of “Breaking Bad” character Gus Fring’s (Giancarlo Esposito) return to the show’s prequel spinoff. Esposito is apparently very happy to have announced the news. He teased on Twitter, “Rise of Gus is coming.”

AMC released an advertisement of a fictional restaurant Los Pollos Hermano, which was introduced in “Breaking Bad.” Gus Fring, who owned the restaurant in the five-season crime drama series, is seen endorsing the brand. Esposito, who played the role of Gus, is apparently very excited about the same. He tweeted, “I'm back!! What you've been waiting for, the rise of Gus is coming.”

Now, as the story of James Morgan "Jimmy" McGill (Bob Odenkirk) is gradually moving towards him becoming Saul Goodman, return of Gus Fring was somewhat expected. Hence, the rumours and theories were floating around from quite some time.

Going by the story of “Breaking Bad,” it is predicted that Jimmy will meet Gus Fring soon in order to get rid of the criminal web he is surrounded in, which will eventually turn him into a drug trader in “Better Call Saul” season 3. Perhaps, the audience will also get to see how Gus sets up the largest drug empire. The story of the show from now on will witness more connections with “Breaking Bad.” It wouldn’t be a surprise if more characters soon make an entry into the show.

Recently, Aaron Paul, who essayed the role of Jesse Pinkman in “Breaking Bad,” revealed that Maximino Arciniega (Domingo "Krazy-8" Molina) is going to make a comeback in the show. Furthermore, he said that he would himself love to join the show in the role of Pinkman.

“Better Call Saul” season 3 doesn’t have a definite release date as of now. However, the teaser of the show has revealed that it will be launched in the US in spring. In Australia, the series is expected to be streamed on Stan, where the previous two seasons were streamed.
