Better Call Saul renewed for its sixth, and final, season
AMC have confirmed that they've renewed Better Call Saul for a sixth final season that will round off the transformation of Bob Odenkirk's Jimmy McGill into the Saul Goodman we know in Breaking Bad.
While the fifth season has yet to air, the renewal is calming news for fans who will be glad to see the show gets a proper, planned conclusion.
Season Five, which will be available to watch on AMC in the US and Netflix in the rest of the world next month, will see a couple of familiar faces from the parent series with Dean Norris (Walter White's brother in law, Hank) and his Steven Michael Quezada (Hank's DEA partner) set to appear in guest roles. Also it's been announced that the late Robert Forster, who passed away last year, is set to appear in the fifth season of the show having shot some scenes during his time working on the Breaking Bad film, El Camino.
The question as to whether Aaron Paul or Bryan Cranston make any pre-Breaking Bad appearances in the final two seasons remains to be seen - and how that would work within the current show chronology would suggest some logistical hurdles would need to be overcome before that could happen.
