- The last installment of the series will consist of 13 episodes and will be dismissed forever in 2022.
The sixth season of Better Call Saul will be the one that puts the finishing touch to the ‘spin-off’ prequel to Breaking Bad and, if already in previous installments we had been witnessing how the story of Jimmy McGill is getting closer to the story in the that we knew him as Saul Goodman, in this new stage both fictions will be offset at times.
As Bob Odenkirk told The Hollywood Reporter, Better Call Saul co-creator Peter Gould has told him that once the series ends, Breaking Bad fans will have a different perception of many things. The performer, who we met as Saul Goodman on the AMC series starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, admits that he doesn’t know the full story yet and that he is still patiently waiting to discover new things as he receives the scripts.
Peter Gould has told me that when ‘Better Call Saul’ ends, everyone will see Breaking Bad from a different perspective. ‘Breaking Bad’ from another perspective. I don’t know what that means. And I have more specific details beyond that, except that he knows what happens throughout the entire season and I don’t. Impressive things are yet to come that will punctuate or update the real incidents of ‘Breaking Bad’ in a surprising way.
The First ‘spin-off’ of the unforgettable series, Better Call Saul’s plots began six years before the events narrated in its predecessor, offering some ‘flashbacks’ that allowed us to see Jimmy McGill and Saul Goodman. In addition, there have always appeared some characters that we knew very well, such as Mike Ehrmantraut and, more recently, Gus Fring, allowing viewers to know his story before crossing the path of Walter White.
As the new fiction has advanced, Better Call Saul has gotten closer and closer to Breaking Bad, and now it will be its sixth season that ends up merging them and ends up closing the circle. For now, filming is already underway. It will consist of 13 episodes and will say goodbye forever in 2022.
