Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk has teased Saul McGill's future in the show's yet to be renewed fourth season in an interview with Uproxx.
Although viewers have yet to find out about Chuck's fate, it seems that Odenkirk has already confirmed his death while discussing Jimmy McGill's upcoming transition to Saul Goodman. He said:
With Chuck gone, that is one of the two big things that are connecting him to humanity, and the other being Kim.
When those pillars fall away, he’s in freefall. We’re fairly close to that.
Odenkirk also revealed that he's hoping to see more from his post-Breaking Bad character, Gene. He continued:
I hope they’ll give some story to him. I think they will. They’re talking about it. So I don’t know how much time is left, but I will and do already feel bad about saying goodbye to the very likable and, I think, good-hearted Jimmy McGill.
