Will fans finally see him as the expert liar in “Better Call Saul” Season 4?

McKean’s departure

Bob Odenkirk also talked about the previous season’s epic finale. A lot of viewers believe that Chuck McGill is now dead because of the tragic ending they had witnessed.

Although his dead body has not yet been seen, the fire that glows from his window tells it all. And even though some hate the protagonist, Odenkirk admitted that Michael McKean’s exit saddens him. “It seriously bummed me out,” he said.”

In fact, he considers it to be “the second-biggest blow” to his joy. The first one was the transformation of Jimmy McGill as a “more evil” guy. He explained that McKean’s departure is quite disappointing because, for him, he is the best actor.

Also, Bob Odenkirk finds it a joy to have him around the set. Although he is happy that he got nominated for the Emmy’s, he is surprised that his 69-year-old co-actor didn’t make it on the list of nominees.

Aside from Odenkirk, Mike Ehrmantraut got a nomination for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Although some believe that it should be for McKean, the 70-year-old actor’s portrayal as Jonathan Banks is also invaluable. The latter, too, is considered to be one of the show’s strongest performers, but fans really can’t deny McKean’s superb acting as McGill’s complicated brother.

“Better Call Saul” Season 4 is expected to return on Netflix in 2018.
