The prequel to one of the most iconic series in TV history, Breaking Bad named Better Call Saul, has seen the transformation of Jimmy McGill’s transform to Saul Goodman. He was indeed was, is, and will remain a Goodman! The series with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould as the co-creators had delivered the best storytelling and telecasted the most nuanced performers over the past five seasons. Even the Season 6 of the series is announced in 2021. But the question remains, what happens after Season 6?
Is Better Call Saul Season 6 the last?
Sadly, AMC has decided that the series will be discontinued after six seasons. The reason for the series closure is largely the ending of the narrative as the series never suffered any complaints regarding low viewership or poor viewer ratings.
The Showrunner, Peter Gould, at the TV Critics Association’s winter press tour, also commented that he always dreamt of making a complete story through Better Call Saul from the beginning to the end. Sarah Barnett, AMC president, had heaped praises on the series calling the creative genius of the co-creators rewarding. The official word of the series’ closure came from Giancarlo Esposito, who starred on both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
Thus ends the story of Saul, showing a total of sixty-three episodes increasing the count of its prequel by one single episode.
For those who are unaware of the series, Better Call Saul is set several years before Breaking Bad. It vividly describes the transformation of essentially decent, yet con man turned lawyer Jimmy McGill into a sleazy persona of Saul Goodman. Key figures from Breaking Bad like Dean Norris’ Hank Schrader, Steven Michael Quezada, as Hank’s fellow DEA agent Steven Gomez also features in Better Call Saul.
Until Season 5, not even the best critics could oversee the end of the series. Gilligan has already expanded the original show’s universe twice. Other AMC originals include Walking Dead, The Terror, among others. So, be ready!
