Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad prequel series from creator Vince Gilligan will come to a close after two more seasons.
AMC’s favourite criminal lawyer will no longer be in business very soon. Deadline has confirmed that it was renewed for a sixth and final season. This news comes just weeks away from the premiere of the fifth season.
Better Call Saul developed as a spin-off/prequel series focusing on James McGill, a small-time lawyer being overshadowed by his brother.
After a number of trials and tribulations that test his will and desire to remain as a law practitioner, McGill eventually coins the name Saul Goodman and begins dabbling in criminal law.
The spin-off series has yet to bring in fan favourites like Walter White (Bryan Cranston) or Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), however supporting characters like Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) and Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) have had their characters expanded upon.
The finale to season 4 saw McGill begin to embrace his criminal side, and a recent teaser for the fifth season heavily hints at him pledging himself to act as a lawyer for those who don’t necessarily deserve it.
Season five of Better Call Saul premieres on Feb. 23, 2020 on AMC.
