Season 3 of Better Call Saul inches us closer to the events of Breaking Bad, which means some more familiar faces will resurface as Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) continues his transformation into Saul Goodman. For one, Bad drug lord Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), who was killed by a bomb, will come back to life early in season 3 of this prequel.
AMC has released a behind-the-scenes promo that brings you onto the set, where Los Pollos Hermanos has been recreated. “To see Gus back and casting his spell over the set and over the moment, it’s going to blow people’s minds,” says Odenkirk, later adding that Gus is “a gatekeeper to [the Breaking Bad world], and a pretty important one. So I guess it sort of suggests that some of the bigger characters from Breaking Bad are starting to come into the orbit of Saul Goodman.”

One of those season 3 guests is not Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, but as you will see, the man who once was the one who knocks did visit the set in Albuquerque while on a book tour. Cranston joked about playing a geriatric patient that will be difficult to spot in the upcoming season.

Season 3 of Better Call Saul kicks off on April 10 at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
