‘Better Call Saul’ Season 5 Premiere Date, Spoilers, Predictions: When Is It Returning? Series Rumored to End in Season 6
“Better Call Saul” season 5 is anticipated since it is nearly a year since the previous season ended. The good news is that the series has been renewed and AMC actually confirmed the fifth season just a few weeks after the fourth season aired.
However, after the conclusion of season 4, filming for “Better Call Saul” season 5 did not commence at once. There is a break and production has not resumed yet until now thus, it can be said that the series is delayed.
The long gap is most likely due to the upcoming “Breaking Bad” movie that will provide fans the answer whether Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) succeeded in his escape and living a quiet life in Alaska or the feds caught up with him and was apprehended once again. Vince Gilligan, the show creator was revealed to be writing and directing the film.
Since Gilligan is also the executive producer of “Better Call Saul” season 5, he is currently busy with the Aaron Paul film, so the production of the series is still on hold. As a result, AMC President Sarah Barnett relayed that Bob Odenkirk’s series is not returning until 2020.
“We said on our most recent earnings call that the series would come back for season five next year,” she told Vulture in April. And when asked if “Better Call Saul” season 5 is not airing until 2020, Barnett replied, “Yes. It’s driven by talent needs, which we would not override if it would result in a worse show.”
Finally, as for the reports that the next installment after “Better Call Saul” season 5 is the series’ finale already, Forbes reported that this is not the case. The publication explained that actor Giancarlo Esposito did not say that season 6 is the last, but his words were only misrepresented. When asked if the if “Better Call Saul” season 5 is the last, Esposito mentioned in his interview with Collider that “it was really five and six,” but he said later that he does not know where the ending the series is.
