A mysterious new video has been released starring Breaking Bad character Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) in what can only be a tie-in teaser for the upcoming season of prequel Better Call Saul.

The 30-second clip is an advert for Fring's Albuquerque chicken joint Los Pollos Hermanos, the restaurant featured in Vince Gilligan's acclaimed series starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul.

Fring's return was teased in Better Call Saul's season two finale when character Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) discovered a note written by the meth baron on the windshield of his car. It simply read: "Don't."

While there is no official word on whether Fring will appear in season three, it now seems as if his return is all but confirmed.

Showrunner Gilligan himself teased Fring's return stating that his appearance would be eventual as opposed to immediate.

Better Call Saul focuses on Bob Odenkirk's Breaking Bad character Saul Goodman in his formative years when he's known as Jimmy McGill.
