There’s lots cooking on Better Call Saul in Season 4.

When last we left hardened former cop Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), he was indebted to soft-spoken — but deadly — restaurateur/drug dealer Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), who helped him clean stolen cartel money.

When the drama returns, Mike “finds getting his toes wet in the Gus Fring world is not so easy,” executive producer Peter Gould says. Bad for Mike, but good for viewers anxious to see the Breaking Bad prequel inch closer to its successor.

“You [see] how Gus builds his empire and what piece Mike plays in that,” Gould says. Still, warns Banks, “If you hire Mike for his expertise, he will deliver — but don’t push him around.” Hear that, Gus?
