Better Call Saul Season 6 Release Date & Confirmation on Netflix!

This week, AMC teased us mercilessly with the debut date for the sixth and final season of “Better Call Saul” — and also the second half of the sixth and final season. Extras include a sneak peek at the upcoming sixth season (shown above) and a sneak peek at the world of the “Breaking Bad” prequel’s digital series.

As of Thursday, AMC announced that the first seven episodes of “Better Call Saul” Season 6 will broadcast on AMC and AMC Plus on April 18th at 9 pm EST. That night, there will be back-to-back episodes. The second half of the last season of “Better Call Saul” will begin airing on July 11, following the completion of the first half of the season.

Season 5 of “Better Call Saul” premiered on AMC in February of 2020, and the cable channel announced in January of that year that it would be the last season of the show. The last season was set to premiere in 2021 at the time. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the show’s premiere date to be postponed, as it has for many other shows. Odenkirk had a heart attack while filming and had to take some time off to recuperate, thus work was put on hold for a short time.

Saul Goodman’s (Bob Odenkirk) metamorphosis into a criminal defence attorney is completed in the final season of Better Call Saul. Season six follows Jimmy, Saul, and Gene as they travel from Albuquerque to Omaha, as well as Jimmy’s complicated relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn), who is going through her own existential crisis at the moment. A cat-and-mouse game with life and death consequences is being played out in the meantime by Jonathan Banks’s Mike, Giancarlos Esposito’s Gus, Michael Mando’s Nacho, and Tony Dalton’s Lalo.

Showrunner Peter Gould said in a statement Thursday that “in my eyes, this is our most ambitious, surprising, and, yes, tragic season,” he added. This entire ‘Saul’ team, from writers to actors to producers to directors, has exceeded themselves despite the exceedingly difficult conditions. “I can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve accomplished together,” I exclaimed.

Three new original short-form programs tied to the world of “Better Call Saul” will launch this spring, according to AMC, including the animated comedy “Slippin’ Jimmy” and the Rhea Seehorn-starring “Saul’s” “Cooper’s Bar.”

It chronicles the misadventures of Jimmy McGill, a little boy from Chicago, and his friends as they grow up in “Better Call Saul’s” universe in the animated series “Slippin’ Jimmy.” From spaghetti westerns and Buster Keaton to “The Exorcist,” each episode pays homage to a different movie genre in the style of legendary 1970s cartoons. Produced by “Rick and Morty” animators Starburns and penned by “Better Call Saul” authors Ariel Levine and Kathleen Williams-Foshee, the sitcom will debut on the digital platforms of AMC in the spring. Chi McBride, Laraine Newman, and Sean Giambrone are among the many actors who lend their voices to the series.
