The spin-off to the Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, had been renewed for a fifth season and in this post, we will be talking about Better Call Saul Season 5 plot, cast, spoilers, and updates. The series has been dealing with declining ratings, however, despite that, AMC has been generous to the series, as it has still prospered. Better Call Saul Season 4 was pretty interesting, and after the finale, fans were getting impatient for Season 5, and luckily the show was renewed and has finished production as of February 2020.
What is Better Call Saul Season 5 about?
While the storyline is yet to be revealed, however, reports suggest that Better Call Saul Season 5 will pick up from where it ended, and Jimmy’s revelation to Kim was like an emotional ride for fans, and we expect to see what unfolds after that. However, many are predicting that they might have some problems as Jimmy will start transforming into Saul, which might not work well with Kim. We might even see Jimmy leaving Kim as he can do anything for his career.
Their relationship status will be something to look forward to in the upcoming season. Along with that, Saul Goodman and Mike’s transition will be a focus as well. Still, we will keep you updated as soon as we get the official announcement.

We are getting some heartbreaking news about the next season, which might also bother you. No, it is not related to cancellation or anything near that so that you can chill a bit for now. It is about Kim, the character we all know is supposed to get killed eventually. The main reason is that Breaking Bad does not feature Kim, and it means we will be seeing something wrong happening to her.
Well, the next season will also be revolving around Kim and Jimmy’s relationship, and they are supposed to have too many problems. But I hope they just separate with a smile rather than something bad happens. We even heard Peter Gould said, “All I can say is, I’d be very sorry if something terrible happened to Kim…,” which was horrible itself. The statement came out in October 2018, and I am afraid that Kim might not be in the sixth season. I hope I am wrong, but it seems like Kim might not make it alive from season 5.
Better Call Saul Is Ending
The good news is that we will be getting a sixth season of Better Call Saul, but the bad news is that AMC has decided that Better Call Saul will be discontinued after six seasons. They did not reveal any proper reason why the show is discontinuing, but it is likely because of the narrative ending as the series never suffered viewership loss.
The Showrunner, Peter Gould, also revealed that he always dreamt of making a complete story through Better Call Saul from the beginning to the end. And it looks like he has pretty much succeeded in doing that. Sarah Barnett, AMC president, had 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. Better Call Saul will have a total of sixty-three episodes increasing the count of its prequel by one single episode.
