Better Call Saul is going to have two more seasons after Season 6. Yes, Netflix’s Better Call Saul to have Season 7 & 8 running simultaneously with Breaking Bad Season 1 and 2 timeline.
To the fans who are disappointed over the thought of Better Call Saul ending after Season 6, we have some good news for you. Yes, Netflix and Vince Gilligan are probably not done with Better Call Saul. Better Call Saul is Netflix’s money-minting machine that’s printing more and more every year.
And for Vince Gilligan, creator of the show, ending Better Call Saul without delivering what Breaking Bad delivered will simply dilute the experience for the whole Breaking Bad Universe that includes Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, and El Camino.
- Better Call Saul will have Season 7 & 8.
- Saul meets Walter and Jesse towards the end of Breaking Bad Season 2.
- Too much to be resolved in Better Call Saul Season 6.
- How Better Call Saul might end?
Thus, neither the creators nor the fans want Season 6 of Better Call Saul to be final. Netflix might keep Better Call Saul alive for Season 7 & 8, and seasons after Season 6 will have the story running simultaneously to Breaking Bad Season 1 & 2.
Better Call Saul will have Season 7 & 8 running simultaneously to Breaking Bad Season 1 & 2.
According to the theory, Better Call Saul will require a couple of seasons after Season 5 to resolve all the conflicts and merge into Breaking Bad. Better Call Saul Season 5 raised the stakes for the characters and show to the highest. There is too much going on for the creators to resolve in one season.
We have already heard the reports of Better Call Season 6 getting split in Season 6a and Season 6b. However, the latest theory suggests that Netflix’s Better Call Saul might have Season 7 & 8 running along with Breaking Bad first two seasons.
Saul meets Walter and Jesse towards the end of Breaking Bad Season 2.
In Breaking Bad, we saw Saul (Bob Odenkirk) entering the scene long after Jesse Pinkman (Aron Paul) and Walter White (Bryan Cranston) begin their Meth business. It was in the Eighth episode of Breaking Bad’s Season 2 when Saul was introduced to the show and the protagonists. Saul also refers to Lalo and Nacho in the same episode.
That means Saul was still dealing with the problem on the other side of the border. While Walter and Jesse were cooking in their RV in Breaking Bad Season 1 & 2, possibilities are Saul was trying to end the chapter of Lalo.
Too much to be resolved in Better Call Saul Season 6.
Netflix’s Better Call Saul will have to continue simultaneously to Breaking Bad for Season 7 & 8 because it requires more time. Season 5 left too much for the Season 6 to handle alone. Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) is planning to destroy Howard.
But her plan has not even begun yet. Gus’s failed plan to assassinate Lalo and Lalo’s discovery of Nacho’s betrayal intensified the conflict further. Saul is getting sucked further deep into the crime business, and Lalo’s vengeance isn’t going to spare him. Why Kim was not in Breaking Bad is another question that needs to be answered.
How Better Call Saul might end?
If Netflix decides to run Season 7 & 8 of Better Call Saul simultaneously to Breaking Bad timeline, then Saul’s introduction to Walter might be the last scene of the show. The show is supposed to merge in Breaking Bad while having all its subplot resolved, and the main storyline of Saul becoming a part of Breaking Bad.
So, as per our theory, before the “Better Call Saul” episode of Breaking Bad, we might see the climax of Better Call Saul resolving all the conflicts of the story. And the last scene might show Walter White appearing in Saul’s office.
