What to look forward to in Better Call Saul season 6
The prequel spin-off series of Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul is set to end soon when it turns 6 seasons old. The show will end with a bang as we’ll get to see a lot more of Breaking Bad as the plot and journey of the characters connect back to it.
But when exactly can we expect to see this exciting crossover? The RadioTimes reported that “It would have been expected to launch at the start of the year, but filming has been paused due to the coronavirus pandemic meaning the show is unlikely to return until mid-2021 at the earliest.”
- Better Call Saul will be releasing in late 2021
- Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul to intersect in the finale
- No more spinoffs for Breaking Bad as of now
But until that happens, we can hang tight with all the interesting possibilities that this last spin created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould can end with. The main character that can help link both the shows is Jimmy McGill, also known as Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad.
The season 5 ended with Kim hatching a plan against Howard, and Lalo stands against almost everyone with an intense need for vengeance. Nacho might be in a bit of soup himself with Lalo suspecting his involvement.
We can only assume the uncertain future of the characters such as Kim Wexler and Nacho Varga as they go missing from Breaking Bad storyline that takes place years later.
The 13-episode season is expected to wrap up the storyline satisfactorily. But we can only wonder if we’ll get to see Jimmy McGill transform to Saul Goodman since at the end of season 5, Jimmy was in a vulnerable state but a twist can surprise us for sure. As of now, Kim is more of a Saul than Saul himself.
Better Call Saul’s cancellation despite its success as a prequel
Breaking Bad has received the title of being one of the best shows in television history and rightfully so. And it was only fair that the show saw to its spin-offs and dig deeper into the complexities of the characters, much to the delight of its dedicated fans.
From the series Better Call Saul to the movie El Camino, the makers of Breaking Bad have shed light on the characters of Saul Goodman and Jesse Pinkman in the best way.
But why is the show coming to an end when its renewal was announced previously? The Daily Express reported Peter Gould’s response in the Television Critics Association panel where he announced, “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 to landing.” The tabloid also reported Sarah Barnett’s response, the President of AMC studios.
“Greenlighting a prequel to one of the most iconic series in television history is one of the boldest swings that AMC has ever taken. But, thanks to the creative genius of Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, it has also been one of the most rewarding.
It has been an absolute joy to collaborate with the extraordinarily talented team on Better Call Saul, which – five seasons in – continues to deliver some of the best storytelling and most beautifully nuanced performances on television today.”
Now that this will be ending with season 6, will Breaking Bad be branching out beyond two exciting spinoffs? Gilligan has mentioned that there’s no intension of doing so after El Camino, according to GameSpot, but he said the same after Breaking Bad, now here we are.
So while there’s no plan for another production for the same, let’s cross our fingers that they change their minds on it, what say?
