The prequel TV show to Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad was a real hit with lovers, and since the fifth episode completed its exhilarating streak in April 2020, the expectation for Better Call Saul season 6 is at an all-time high by many curious to learn whether it will be about Netflix in 2021.
The very first four seasons of Better Call Saul are currently available on Netflix. The series that stars Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill, the lawyer that always finds a way to live, additionally features Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks, Michael Mando, Rhea Seehorn, and many more talented people.
Fans everywhere are more than eager to find out what happened next from the Golden Globe-nominated series.
All indications point to the series’s result being an explosive, must-watch affair, but fans should be aware that getting front-row seats to the notorious TV lawyer’s farewell tour will take a little longer than originally anticipated. It seems that Better Call Saul season 6 won’t be airing this year, based on AMC Networks chief Josh Sapan who made a less than perfect revelation about as soon as the Odenkirk-led crime drama will return.
The Season 6 release date
The show will begin to picture in New Mexico in March and will roll afterward in 2021. If all goes according to plan, Better Call Saul Season 6 will premiere in early 2022.
“We have some changing about because of COVID-related manufacturing waits for our shows, as we discussed in our prepared remarks,” AMC Networks chief Josh Sapan said on a conference call to go over the community’s late 2020 earnings.
But”for better Call Saul,” it does seem likely, at this time, that better Call Saul’ will move into the first quarter of 2022,” Sapan added. “That’s how we’re seeing it at this time. Along with other shows, we’re on a manufacturing timing program. We’ll have a clearer perspective, I believe, next quarter”
Better Call Saul season 6 story: who will survive?
The season 5 finale set up two major storylines: Kim from Howard Hamlin, and Lalo Salamanca versus, well, everybody. In the last scene, we abandoned Lalo fuming with anger after Gus’ failed assassination effort. With his home ablaze and mom dead,” Lalo has vengeance in his eyes and is going north for revenge,” Tony Dalton told the LA Times. We know Lalo survives, though, since we recall Goodman’s fearful lineup to Walter White in Breaking Bad: “Can Lalo send you?”
One of the men with a target on his back as Nacho Varga, also Gould informed The Wrap he’s”in deep, deep trouble.” Nacho vanishes through the assassination, and the extended shot of Lalo fixating on the drinks he shared with Varga minutes earlier confirms that he supposes his former colleague’s participation. Nacho never seems in Breaking Bad, and thus don’t bet on him making it out alive.
What a Great Season it was! I Cannot wait for the final season ??

Another central Better Call Saul character missing in Breaking Bad is Jimmy’s wife, Kim Wexler, and she does not appear to be on a danger-free path. After standing around Lalo – so she has one foot in the grave already – it feels like the taciturn attorney is becoming a taste for chaos: she wishes to scam goody-two-shoes Howard from his illustrious legal career, which makes the newlyweds millions.
Gould is also worried for Wexler: in an interview with The Wrap, he states”The name of this penultimate episode this season was Bad Choice Road. And, surely, Kim Wexler seems to be on a bad choice street.” In a virtual Deadline panel, Rhea Seehorn revealed on her time on the show up to now, describing that playing Kim was more complicated than simply”one giant arc of the mask coming away” as her backstory interweaves with Jimmy’s present. But while Seehorn promised to not know where her story is going yet, Gould stated”We’ve got plenty of thoughts”
In many ways, the roles of Kim and Jimmy have reversed. After all Goodman’s near-death knowledge in the desert, he is reverted into the uncertain Jimmy McGill. Bob Odenkirk said”Jimmy is in a vulnerable location. He is in a weak and uncertain and frfrighteninglace inside.”
We are aware that McGill makes it through the Better Call Saul season, but is it worth it? “He’s an attachment to only awful, awful things, not just in the Walter White of it, but most of the other things that he’s done,”I believe he has a karmic burden. Does this guy make a happy ending?”
While Gould is naturally keen to keep the upcoming narrative threads under wraps, he did emphasize the kinds of questions we should be asking with EW, pointing us in the direction of season 6’s important preoccupations. First is Gene Takovic, McGill’s alter ego we see in black-and-white flash-forwards on the first day of each season. Gould encourages us to consider”What does this guy deserve?” As much as” What’s likely to happen to him?”
Then, when asked for a final cryptic suggestion, he says we ought to”Keep your eye on the jar stopper” Kim took from her office as she stepped her job as a lawyer at Schweikart & Cokely. It is hard to know what he is getting at, but that will surely show as the complex machinations of the season come to your head.

Better Call Saul cast: will more Breaking Bad characters return?
Better Call Saul would not exist without the man himself, therefore Odenkirk will return as Goodman. The Better Call Saul season 6 cast list isn’t confirmed, but we’ll surely see more from Rhea Seehorn (Kim Wexler), Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut), Patrick Fabian (Howard Hamlin), Micheal Mando (Nacho Varga), Giancarlo Esposito (Gus Fring), and Tony Dalton (Lalo Salamanca).
However, while Gould has confirmed that we will not find Jesse (Aaron Paul) or even Walter (Bryan Cranston), could we see any other forgettable Poor cameos? We were already treated to the return of Hank (Dean Norris) and his DEA friend, Steven (Steven Michael Quezada) in season 5…
