Meanwhile, Better Call Saul's renewal comes ahead of its fourth season premiere, so fans have been given an early treat by knowing the show will definitely be back. 

The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated spin-off of Breaking Bad has been a hit for the network since it debuted, and it follows Saul Goodman in a pre-Breaking Bad world. 

It stars Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando and Giancarlo Esposito. 


All three series join The Terror in the renewal category at the network. There's no word yet on whether Dietland will be back, but the ratings for the show have not been good. 

Dietland Season 1 is averaging 0.4 million viewers and a 0.1 rating in the demo based on live plus same day measures.
