The prequel series and spin-off of AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” produced by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, is a phenomenally popular and critically praised prequel series and spin-off of “Breaking Bad.”
Jimmy McGill, a shady small-time conman turned criminal defence attorney, gradually takes the guise of Saul Goodman and brushes shoulders with the country’s most dangerous drug lords.
‘Better Call Saul,’ starring Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, and Giancarlo Esposito, premiered on February 8, 2015, and quickly became one of television’s best shows.
As a result, it’s unsurprising that viewers are excited about the show’s sixth season, eager to find out what happens to their favourite characters.

Release Date for Season 6 of Better Call Saul
Season 5 of ‘Better Call Saul’ began on AMC on February 23, 2020.
The 10th and final episode of the series, which was released weekly, was released on April 20, 2020. Each episode lasts between 45 and 60 minutes.
In terms of Season 6, we have some disappointing news! At the TCA Winter Press Tour on January 16, 2020, Gould announced that AMC had renewed the program for a 6th and final season of 13 episodes.
Unforeseen circumstances, particularly the COVID-19 epidemic, hampered and delayed season 6 development for about a year.
When Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman) died of a heart attack on set on July 27, 2021, things seemed to be at an all-time low.
However, by early September, the actor had healed and was back on duty, sharing the good news with his worried and ecstatic fans.
Season 6 will take a long time to get ready for viewers, given the amount of time that production and post-production will take, especially since several sequences involving Odenkirk have yet to be shot.
“We’re still in the sixth season,” says the narrator. I’ve completed most of my acting work. Esposito added, “I have a few loose ends to tie up.”
Season 6 of ‘Better Call Saul’ is expected to premiere in the first quarter of 2022, based on all of the above facts.

Who is in the cast of Better Call Saul Season 6?
The main cast will return for the 6th and final season of the show.
- Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman/Gene Takovic,
- Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut,
- Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring,
- Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler,
- Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin,
- Michael Mando as Nacho Varga, and
- Tony Dalton as Lalo Salamanca
- Dean Norris as Hank Schrader and
- Steven Michael Quezada as Steven Gomez
The show’s creators, on the other hand, have been tight-lipped regarding any new cast members joining the main cast for the final season.
There’s also no word on whether Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul will appear.
“We have a plan for where we think this is heading, a plan for how we’re going to end it all, and a plan for characters like Walt and Jesse who may or may not return.
When asked about the potential of Cranston and Paul making a cameo, Gould replied, “You don’t want to commit to anything too much because things happen, and if the story zigzags or zags in a way that makes it hard for us to have even beloved people back, we won’t have them back.”
What is the plot of Better Call Saul Season 6?
Season 5 is full of surprises. After obtaining his law license and declining Howard Hamlin’s job offer, Jimmy truly embraces his Saul Goodman identity.
He also marries Kim, who gradually becomes not just Jimmy’s life partner but also his criminal companion as he dives deeper into the murky pool of crooks in which Jimmy swims for his job.
Kim resigns from Schweikart and Cokely, taking with her just her pro bono cases. She also devises a strategy to resolve the Sandpiper Crossing case and derail her ex-boss Hamlin’s career, signaling her transformation from a totally pro bono lawyer to a smart and vengeful lawyer.
Jimmy alternates between emerging drug king Gus Fring and long-serving cartel leader Lalo Salamanca, representing the latter but dangerously near to a full-fledged gang war.
Gus orders a hit on Lalo, only for Lalo to escape and plot his vengeance. Jimmy and Kim hide in a hotel from Lalo, knowing they’ll be in danger if he learns the truth about Jimmy’s bagman run through the desert (with Mike).
Season 6 might delve deeper into Jimmy’s life in hiding as Cinnabon store manager Gene Takovic, a character we’ve seen glimpses of throughout the five seasons.
In the last season, it appears that we will get a closer look at Jimmy’s numerous layers and personas. Since every other important character in ‘Breaking Bad‘ is alive and well, fans must be wondering if the inevitable and impending drug-fueled battle will have dire implications for Kim.
Odendirk, on the other hand, admitted, “I don’t think she dies.” I believe she is still practising law in Albuquerque, and he’s still stumbling across her.
That, in my opinion, would drive his desire to be on billboards all over the place because he wants her to see him.”
Gould teased Kim’s plot by saying, “Keep your eye on the bottle stopper,” referring to the moment in which she resigns and takes a bottle stopper with her.
We’ll probably see the conclusion of her sabotage attempt in the sixth and final season.
Gus and Lalo’s fierce war for dominance, Jimmy’s growing professional relationship with Gus, and Gus’ climb to the top of the drug mafia are all expected to be revealed in the final season.
Clearly, the show’s last season will address blurred moral lines, the consequences of criminal activities, personal preservation, and the concept of redemption.
Violence, emotional and physical trauma, as well as life-altering decisions will all be present.
“What would be a fitting conclusion to this? Is it fair to kill Jimmy McGill, Saul Goodman, and Gene Takovic? Is he deserving of love?
What would be the most appropriate conclusion for this character — for the show?” Gould joked, posing these questions as critical thinking prompts for the season finale.
Although viewers of “” know where Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman ends up, the journey is more important than the destination.
