Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring is back in new Better Call Saul teaser
Breaking Bad‘s Gus Fring is back!
Giancarlo Esposito’s restaurant-owning drug lord is back in a new teaser for the upcoming third season of Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.
In the teaser, which takes the form of a promotion for Fring’s restaurant chain Los Pollos Hermanos, Fring appears to personally promise a money-back guarantee if patrons don’t like their food.
Esposito confirmed the return on his Twitter page, writing: “I’m back!! What you’ve been waiting for, the rise of Gus is coming!”
Fans speculated the Breaking Bad baddie would appear in Better Call Saul after they discovered the first letter all of last season’s episodes combined to spell ‘FRINGSBACK’.
The legendary Gus Fring was a significant character in Breaking Bad‘s third and fourth seasons, where he employed Walter White (and later Jesse Pinkman) to work in his meth producing operation. He was a ruthless drug lord who masqueraded behind the facade of a likeable and generous local business owner.
As fans of the series will know, Gus had links to criminal lawyer Saul Goodman – the protagonist of Better Call Saul – prior to his appearance in Breaking Bad.
We can’t wait to find out how the pair first met!
