We finally know when Better Call Saul will return with new episodes. AMC announced Thursday that Season 4 arrives Monday, Aug. 6 at 9/8c. Mark those calendars accordingly!

And in case you had any doubts, Chuck really is dead. The network confirmed his demise in a press release, noting that the event will put Saul (Bob Odenkirk) directly on the path toward becoming the strip mall lawyer we first met in Breaking Bad. "In the all-new season, Chuck's death catalyzes Jimmy McGill's transformation into Saul Goodman," the announcement read.

Chuck was last seen in the Season 3 finale sitting on his couch as his house went up in flames, a sure sign he'd offed himself amid a life crisis. However, we never saw him actually die, and producers would never confirm or deny his death. In addition to Saul, Chuck's death will also have a major impact on Howard and Kim who will again find themselves at odds after being gaslighted by the Brothers McGill.

Better Call Saul's Season 4 opening will be followed by the series premiere of Lodge 49 at 10/9c. The modern fable centers on a drifting ex-surfer who finds camaraderie at a run-down fraternal lodge.

Better Call Saul returns for Season 4 on Monday, Aug. 6 at 9/8c, followed by the series premiere of Lodge 49 at 10/9c.
