Better Call Saul, created by Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan, is a crime drama series that is the prequel to the famous AMC series The Breaking Bad. Owing to Breaking Bad’s strong fanbase and the show itself having such an intriguing plotline and a spectacular cast, it has had a very successful 5 season run, and now talks are it will come back for a sixth and final season.
The story follows the journey of James ‘Jimmy’ Mcgill, a criminal defense lawyer who, after being exposed to a world of drugs, criminal and identity crisis, emerges out as his alter ego, Saul Goodman.
Is There a S6 to Better Call Saul?
Yes, there is a sixth season to the much-loved crime drama series. The sixth season, which is also rumored to be the series finale, is all set to release in 2022. The network had renewed its first half of 2020, but the production kept getting delayed due to the global pandemic. Nonetheless, it is now in its last stages of production and will soon be gracing our television and OTT screens later this year.
What to Expect from the Sixth Installment?
The fifth season can be seen exploring the relationship between Kim and Jimmy, and chances are they will continue this storyline forward in the last season as well. Jimmy’s alter ego Saul gets stuck in the world of drugs smuggling in Alberquerque. Speculations are of Jimmy getting into a beef with the well-sourced Salamandor family and Gus Fring, a big-shot drug supplier.
For the season finale, we can see Kim and Jim take shelter at a resort trying to hide from Lalo Salamandor. Meanwhile, Mike makes arrangements for the assassination of Lalo, but his plan fails as Lalo comes out of it unharmed. At the resort, Kim is questioning her morals, and we see some transformation occurring in her character. However, she continues with her pro bono work.
The final season might see the return of Lalo, as he tries to seek revenge from the people who want to kill him. We are all familiar with Jimmy’s face as he steps into the character of Walter White but what is going to happen to Kim is still a mystery to find out in the final season.
She doesn’t have a very bright future is the blood-thirsty world of drugs. The final season holds a lot of promises, with many storylines still left to close. Hopefully, the character Jimmy Mcgill will get its well-deserved ending.
How Many Episodes Will the Sixth Season Have?
The sixth season is reported to have 13 episodes of 50 to 55min each as against the general 10 episodes.
Whom to Expect for S6?

Along with him, one can expect to see Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Tony Dalton as Lalo Salamanca, Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, Michael Mando as Nacho Varga Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut among others.
