The Sequel to the amazing award-winning show, Breaking Bad – Better Call Saul has been renewed for its last season; Season 6. It has had a long journey running and building a relationship with its fans and according to sources, Jimmy McGill is finally close to becoming the Saul Goodman we saw the first time in Breaking Bad, there will be three more episodes than the usual ten.
The showrunner and executive producer Peter Gould thanked fans of the show in an official statement (via TVLine): “From day one of Better Call Saul, my dream was to tell the complete story of our complicated and compromised hero, Jimmy McGill – now AMC and Sony are making that dream come true.”
“We couldn’t be more grateful to the fans and critics who are making this journey possible. Next month, we start work on the sixth and final season – we’re going to do our damnedest to stick the landing.”
Better Call Saul Season 6 Release Date
The season 6 of the show had started filming in February of 2020, but the shooting had to come to a halt owed to the Pandemic, Covid-19. According to the initial plan of the production, the show was set to release in early 2021. However, as stated before due to the current situation, this season might not come to the streaming services until mid-2021 at least.
Better Call Saul Season 6 Cast
Bob Odenkirk will obviously be back as Jimmy McGill / Saul Goodman / Gene Takavic, alongside main players Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, Michael Mando as Nacho Varga and Tony Dalton as Lalo Salamanca.
As the show runs on the same timeline as the original show, Breaking Bad, many characters have made cameos, including Dean Norris and the late Robert Forster.
So, the fans have been waiting for more cameos and have been dying to see the characters of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul reprise the roles of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman? Never say never, although Paul isn’t so sure it would work.
“I thought maybe I would play him [Jesse] in Better Call Saul,” he admitted to Digital Spy. “I’m such a big fan of that show. But in the recent seasons, in the flash-forwards, especially now knowing where Jesse is, there’s just no reason for him to be at that place and at that time. I can’t imagine him showing up in Better Call Saul.”
We sincerely hope that the last instalment will bring as much joy to their fans as the previous seasons have.
