Will AMC’s Better Call Saul end after six seasons?


Say it ain’t so! AMC’s Better Call Saul could end after six seasons.

Better Call Saul has done well for itself since it first premiered in 2015. It seemed impossible that it could live up to its award-winning predecessor, Breaking Bad, but boy, did they prove everyone wrong. The series has managed to do well on its own while simultaneously tying in bits and pieces of Breaking Bad into the story.

According to a report by Deadline, Giancarlo Esposito, who returned to reprise the role of Gus Fring, believes that the sixth season could be it’s last. He spoke to Collider about it and reminded us that co-creator Vince Gilligan had a five-season plan for Breaking Bad, but it ultimately split into six due to the final season being split into two.

Could the same happen for Better Call Saul? Possibly. Esposito believes that ending the series on season six would be the best ending point. This would mean that there are potentially only two seasons left of the show. It doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibilities because within four seasons the series has shown us the transition of Jimmy McGill into Saul Goodman.

It could very easily end the story in season six and end on a point where the story of Breaking Bad picks up from. Despite Esposito’s comments, AMC has not given any such official confirmation. I guess time will tell what their decision will be, but in the meantime, we are itching for season five!

Next. 5 TV shows coming in 2019 that we want to binge (and 5 we’re sad to see go). dark

The fifth season is currently in production and is rumored to premiere sometime in 2020 (ugh, that’s so far away!). The wait may be long but rest assured the series will not disappoint when it does return considering its managed to gather 12 Emmy nominations including Best Drama Series, Lead Actor, and Lead Supporting Actor.
