Production begins on Better Call Saul season four

After almost seven months since season three came to an end, production is now underway for the fourth season of AMC’s Better Call Saul. The news was confirmed by co-creator Peter Gould, with scenes now filming on location in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Albuquerque, New Mexico, Film, Filming, Destination, Location, Tourism, Better Call Saul, AMC, Netflix, News, Article, Production, Industry, Writing, Publishing, EntertainmentDirector of the New Mexico Film Office, Nick Maniatis explains: “we're proud to welcome this incredible production team back for a fourth season of Better Call Saul. Over the last three seasons, Sony has proven to be an excellent partner with the State of New Mexico as we continue growing and diversifying our economy and we look forward to the continued success of our partnership."

150 local crew members will be hired for the production, alongside 50-100 principal actors and roughly 1,500 background talent.

Better Call Saul and its predecessor series, Breaking Bad, have become staples of New Mexico’s production industry. The popularity of both projects has contributed greatly to the state’s film tourism industry.

New Mexico is one of the most cost-effective filming locations in the world. The state provides a 25% refundable tax credit to projects that incur at least one day of local filming. An additional 5% is available in the case of qualifying feature films, TV pilots and TV shows.

The programme, which is one of the few available that doesn’t require a minimum spend, is available to a wide range of production types including documentaries, music videos, student films and commercials.

Other projects to have recently shot in New Mexico include USA Network’s Mr. Robot and the Coen Brothers’ The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
