AMC Sets Premiere Dates for 'Better Call Saul' and 'Lodge 49'

AMC has today announced the premiere dates for the upcoming fourth season of the drama Better Call Saul and the series debut of the drama Lodge 49.

Both dramas will premiere on Monday, August 6 - with Season 4 of Better Call Saul at 9/8c. and Season 1 of Lodge 49 at 10/9c.

In Season 4 of Better Call Saul, Chuck's death catalyzes Jimmy McGill's transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer - and his relationship with Kim - in jeopardy. Chuck's death deeply affects former colleagues Howard and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill. Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive's newest (and most thorough) security consultant. It's a volatile time to be in Gus Fring's employ, as Hector's collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos - tearing apart both Gus and Nacho's well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.

The drama stars Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando and Giancarlo Esposito.

Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould created the drama. They executive produce with Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison. Sony Pictures Television, Gran Via Productions, Crystal Diner Productions and High Bridge Productions produce.

Lodge 49 is a light-hearted, endearing modern fable set in Long Beach, California about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud, who's drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. Dud serendipitously finds himself on the doorstep of a rundown fraternal lodge, where a middle-aged plumbing salesman and "Luminous Knight" of the order, Ernie, welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie and the promise of Alchemical mysteries that may - or may not - put Dud on the path to recover the idyllic life he's lost.

The drama stars Wyatt Russell, Brent Jennings, Sonya Cassidy, Linda Emond, David Pasquesi and Eric Allan Kramer.

Jim Gavin created the drama. He executive produces with showrunner Peter Ocko, Paul Giamatti, Dan Carey and Jeff Freilich. AMC Studios produce.
