Better Call Saul Season 5: Bob Odenkirk Updates And All We Know So Far

Better Call Saul is one of the spin-off series that has done exceptionally well for itself, airing on ABC it is the follow up of dark noir crime series, Breaking Bad. Nowadays, there’s too much speculation surrounding the show. We have heard multiple reports of how Better Call Saul Season 6 is renewed by the network, although nothing has been made official so far. Season 5 of Better Call Saul has also been delayed beyond belief, though some cast members have said a few things about the show. Keep reading to know more.

Creators from Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan, and Peter Gould are involved with Better Call Saul too. The premise of this show is based around the timeline of the mid-2000s, centering upon a con-man turned small-time lawyer, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk). For the spin-off, is set at a time period of 6 years before the events of breaking bad. It walks us through the rise of Jimmy McGill into a criminal-for-hire, Saul Goodman.

Nothing is known about the fate of Better Call Saul Season 5, but Giancarlo Esposito (Gus Fring) said that it would be the second last season of the show. He was also rumored to be leaving the series shortly, again we don’t have a confirmation on that. Esposito further said that he doesn’t want the show to go any longer than Breaking Bad did, he detailed on Lalo Salamanca, a new villain that will be present in the next to create obstacles for Gus.

Bob Odenkirk, the lead himself seemed to echo Esposito’s statement, stating that stopping at Season 6 would be the perfect way to end the series. He further added after 60 episodes, Saul should end. If we count, that’s two episodes less than Breaking Bad. Season 5 writing will obviously intersect with events of Breaking Bad, so that should be interesting to watch.

Season 5 is not expected to come out until 2020. A Breaking Bad sequel too is one work to be aired on Netflix, all of this is likely to crisscross then. Gus Fring will see more of Gene, in Season 6, more so. That’s a challenge for writers, for logistics and also for scheduling, which explains Season 5 delay. More as we have it.
