It might surprise you and disappoint you as well, but Better Call Saul, the spin-off for AMC’s Breaking Bad, might be one such show that will have no finale season or finale episode.
Better Call Saul is enjoying the similar fame that Breaking Bad enjoyed. The show that revolves around the life of Saul Goodman, one of the major characters in Breaking Bad, has managed to prove that prequels or spin-offs can be as good as the original shows. However, fans might face disappointment after knowing that Better Call Saul might not end in an equally satisfying way as AMC’s Breaking Bad did. Yes, if you go by the fan theories and speculations, then AMC’s Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul, might not get a finale season or finale episode.
- AMC’s Better Call Saul might not get a finale season.
- Saul Goodman will meet Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
- Breaking Bad’s finale was the finale for Better Call Saul.
AMC’s Better Call Saul might not get a finale season.
Better Call Saul debuted on TV in February 2015, almost two years after the finale of Breaking Bad. The Fifth Season of Better Call Saul ended on Netflix in April 2020.
Though the fans are waiting for the sixth and the last season, no one knows if it will be the finale season. As per the rumors, AMC’s Better Call Saul might not get a finale season.
It is not any sort of ill-treatment from the Network, or failure from the creators to create something worth, but the storyline of Saul Goodman might not need a finale.
Saul Goodman will meet Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
One reason for AMC’s Better Call Saul not having a finale can be the storyline merging into Breaking Bad with no need for a finale.
From the Episode 8 “Better Call Saul” of Breaking Bad Season 2, we know how Jimmy McGill aka Saul Goodman enters the Breaking Bad storyline and meets Walter aka Heisenberg and Jesse.
In one of the scenes in S2 E8 of Breaking Bad, we see Saul, played by Bob Odenkirk, referring to Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton) and Nacho Varga (Michael Mando) in a way as they still existed in the Breaking Bad universe at the time. But we never saw Saul interacting with them or dealing with them in any way during Breaking Bad.
It might mean Saul’s storyline simply merged into Breaking Bad as he faced bigger conflict in the form of Walt, played by Bryan Cranston, and Jesse, played by Aaron Paul.
Breaking Bad’s finale was the finale for Better Call Saul.
In Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad universe, everything is part of one storyline. One thing leads to another.
As we saw in El Camino, Jesse Pinkman dealt with the conflicts of Breaking Bad. Though the movie had a complete storyline if seen as the part of Breaking Bad universe, as a stand-alone movie it had no beginning, no conflict of its own.
El Camino was simply a finale to Jesse Pinkman’s character and a proper end to Breaking Bad.
Similarly, Vince Gilligan may give AMC’s Better Call Saul the same treatment by not giving it a finale.
Better Call Saul might prove to be a beginning to Breaking Bad universe. As El Camino was a continuation of Breaking Bad’s storyline, Better Call Saul might see its storyline being the origin of Breaking Bad’s storyline.
There are several reasons due to which AMC’s Better Call Saul might not get a finale, but that doesn’t mean it will not get a thrilling Season 6.
