Better Call Saul is getting ready for its sixth and final season which will further connect the series to the timeline of Breaking Bad. Peter Gould spoke about the AMC series in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s the devil’s own Rubik’s cube because we know where these characters are and we know kind of where some of them end up. There are characters like Kim Wexler, whose fates are wide open. And then there are characters like Jimmy McGill, we know very specifically what he was doing for a couple of years there, or at least what he was doing when Walter White was around. So yeah, there’s a lot of limitations. There’s a lot of obligations. In some ways that’s the fun of it. In some ways, the fun of it is trying to make it all fit together and to make Better Call Saul its own coherent story in itself, and yet also kind of create a frame around Breaking Bad.
I think by the time you finish watching Better Call Saul, you’re going to see Breaking Bad in a very different light. I think we’re going to learn things about the characters in Breaking Bad that we didn’t know. We’re going to learn things about the events of Breaking Bad that we didn’t know. And we’re going to learn things about the fates of a lot of these characters that may surprise people or certainly throw them into a different light. I think we started this 2007, so that’s 13 years of work that’s distilled, that all has to fit together. Hopefully like a perfect jigsaw puzzle. I don’t know if all the joints are going to be absolutely even. I’d sure hope so. We’re going to do our best to sand it down.
A premiere date for season six of Better Call Saul has not been announced. According to Gould, the writers are currently working on the final season’s sixth episode via Zoom calls.
What do you think? Are you excited for the conclusion of Better Call Saul? Will you watch season six of the AMC series?
