Better Call Saul Renewed for a Sixth and Final Season

-

AMC and Sony Pictures Television announced today the renewal of acclaimed Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul for a sixth and final 13-episode season, which will go into production later this year and air in 2021. The renewal comes just ahead of the highly-anticipated season five two-night premiere event on Sunday, February 23 at 10:00 p.m. ET/9c and Monday, February 24 at 9:00 p.m. ET/8c.

In the 10-episode fifth season, Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) decision to practice law as “Saul Goodman” creates unexpected and profound waves of change for those in his orbit.

“From day one of Better Call Saul my dream was to tell the complete story of our complicated and compromised hero, Jimmy McGill – now AMC and Sony are making that dream come true,” said Showrunner and Executive Producer Peter Gould. “We couldn’t be more grateful to the fans and critics who are making this journey possible. Next month we start work on the sixth and final season — we’re going to do our damnedest to stick the landing.”

“Greenlighting a prequel to one of the most iconic series in television history is one of the boldest swings that AMC has ever taken. But, thanks to the creative genius of Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, it has also been one of the most rewarding,” said Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. “It has been an absolute joy to collaborate with the extraordinarily talented team on Better Call Saul, which – five seasons in – continues to deliver some of the best storytelling and most beautifully nuanced performances on television today. We congratulate Vince, Peter, our producers, writers and cast on a remarkable run and look forward to sharing this final chapter with fans.”

“Like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul is brilliant storytelling at its best. Vince and Peter have created a fascinating world and compelling characters that are unlike anything else on television,” said Jeff Frost, president, Sony Pictures Television. “And the exceptional performances of this extraordinary cast have charmed and captivated audiences every season. While we are sad that this remarkable series is coming to a close, we can’t wait for Vince and Peter to divulge the sensational conclusion.”

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, Better Call Saul stars Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando, Tony Dalton and Giancarlo Esposito and is executive produced by Gould, Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz.
