Better Call Saul is nearing the end of its third season, but what about a fourth? Recently, co-creator Peter Gould spoke with Uproxx about the future of the AMC TV series.
A spin-off of Breaking Bad, the comedy-drama follows Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), a down-on-his-luck lawyer trying to negotiate the ethical dilemmas of the legal world, emerge from his older brother’s shadow, and make a name for himself. The cast also includes Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian, Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando, and Giancarlo Esposito.
In the interview, Gould told Uproxx’s Alan Sepinwall that there is an end in mind for Better Call Saul:
I will say I think this show has a definitely limit to it. It’s a story with a beginning and a middle and a definite end. I have to say, I would rather have it end too soon than go on too long. It’s the old showbiz adage: “Leave them wanting more.” I would rather have people wish there had been more seasons than them going, “Oh, is that still on?””
Will there be a fourth season, though? AMC has yet to renew the show, but Gould is optimistic there will be another season:
They should always be worried in television… AMC and Sony have been very good to us. I believe they will continue to be, but it’s show business. There’s nothing that’s certain. You asked me how many seasons we have left; hopefully, it’s a creative decision to end the show, and not an economic one. So I don’t want to take anything for granted. I just feel lucky that we’ve done three seasons. I sure hope we get to do more.”
However, if Better Call Saul does finish with season three, Gould says the ending will be “very provocative.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Better Call Saul? How many more seasons do you want?
Please More Saul. Take it into the Breaking Bad era so that we know what Saul is up to when not helping Mr White.
Of Course More..4 ,5 6 seasons…How trhey can have doubts about this show…it keep you interest on every episode..its so real…down to earth…
More More More!
I love this show! I believe that most people can’t appreciate the value of this story. I really would like at least a fourth season to wind this up. Let us know what happens to Gene in Omaha. We need closure!
My family are very loyal fans, and we would be very disappointed with AMC if they don’t give the show a fourth season to either wind up the story, or pitch forward to a sequel showing how in the future Jimmy finds a way to rise above working at Cinnabon and make another new life. That would be so great.
This is my favourite show. The writing is amazing and the actors are real and solid. Yes please, renew this wonderful series.
LOVE “Better Call Saul” the seasons aren’t near long enough & absolutely there should be at least several more seasons! AMC doesn’t have an enough good series and certainly cannot afford enough to lose this one!
I love the show and love that it was the prequel to breaking bad. Always wondered what “happened before”. The cast is terrific and I would love to c another season or two
All the characters are great and I really enjoy watching the show.Please renew.
We need at least one more season to tie up all the lose ends and bring it to a proper conclusion.
I didn’t even watch the first season because I didn’t think I would like it, but later I did, and I became addicted to the show. I wouldn’t mind if you went 10 or 15 more seasons. I am a big fan now! Please don’t stop too soon.
Would love to see more seasons
