Can't wait. Been rewatching it recently and found it very rewarding second time through.

I think the general thought, that I've seen anyway, is that they'll do six seasons. That sounds about right to me.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

A while back Michael Mando posted a spoileriffic pic apparently from the filming of episode 2:

...which would appear to suggest that Jimmy is already well into his descent into becoming Saul by the early episodes of this series. The other pics released today would appear to back this up- again, SPOILERS:

Giancarlo Esposito said there would be six seasons, and that article says at least six, maybe more. Good news!

I always feel so sad that Serge isn't around whenever a new series of this is announced.

Me too- it was Serge who got me into the whole BrBa universe via his excellent posts here and on Facebook and I just wish he was here to enjoy every new instalment and discuss them all with us.

The air date was also cheekily revealed by Cinnabon a day before the teaser was out:

Note the sell-by date on the box.

Deadly! I can't wait for this. Although I wasn't keen on El Camino, it left me gagging for more of that universe, so glad it's coming a bit earlier in the year this time (I remember it being around August last year).

When you say "earlier" you realise they will have skipped a whole year and more since the last season?

I do, but I was just worried about having to wait another six months on top of that before more Saul, so it still feels like a bonus.

Odenkirk seems to be suggesting on Twitter that it will be a wild season as well

02/23, like 9/11, because Americans refuse to write dates properly.

Odenkirk seems to be suggesting on Twitter that it will be a wild season as well

I think he's also said something about it being the most bleak and devastating season yet, with lots of things to come crashing down... but that's pretty much inevitable isn't it? This thing is just going to get bleaker and bleaker.

I'm excited for this, but I've never paid too much attention to what the BrBa/BCS cast say about forthcoming episodes. I think Gilligan and Gould have got them all well trained to say a lot of things to hype the show up while giving away absolutely nothing. As it should be.

The photos are a bit spoilery but I suppose that can't be avoided.

Loads of casting details already on IMDB:

It looks like "Marcie" and "Jo" are two new recurring characters.

True to BB/BCS form, the number on the business card is real and if you call it (and you're calling from the US) you get a spoilery little recorded message:
