The sixth and final season of the AMC television series Better Call Saul premiered in the United States on April 18, 2022, and is set to conclude on August 15, 2022. The season is divided into two halves, with the first ending on May 23, 2022, and the second beginning on July 11. The thirteen-episode season airs on Mondays at 9:00 p.m. (Eastern) on AMC and AMC+ in the United States and on Netflix the following Tuesday outside of the United States.
Previous season actors Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando, Tony Dalton, and Giancarlo Esposito return. Breaking Bad spin-off, prequel, and Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould created sequel Better Call Saul.
The sixth season picks up where the fifth left off, primarily in 2004, four years before Jimmy McGill (Odenkirk) meets Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Bryan Cranston) (Aaron Paul).
The season continues Jimmy's transformation into the eponymous character, criminal defense lawyer “Saul Goodman,” as he and his wife Kim Wexler (Seehorn) carry out their plan to ruin Howard Hamlin's (Fabian) career to force a resolution of the Sandpiper case. It simultaneously depicts the drug cartel's reactions to the assassination attempt on Lalo Salamanca (Dalton).
Better Call Saul Season 6 Release Date
The first episode of “Better Call Saul” season 5 aired on AMC on February 23, 2020, and the final episode aired on April 20, 2020. The show's fifth season has ten episodes, each lasting, on average, 50–55 minutes.
Here's all we know about the release date of ‘Better Call Saul' season 6. The season began filming in February 2020, but production was interrupted by the Covid mayhem. Fortunately, the world has not ended, and the show will resume production in March 2021.
Better Call Saul Season 6 Plot
Better Call Saul's fifth season develops the characters of Jimmy and Kim, and the plot grows faster than one could anticipate. As Jimmy's Saul Goodman delves into the underground drug trade within Albuquerque's prison, the story becomes more convoluted and challenging. The plot takes another crazy turn as Jimmy becomes embroiled in a conflict between the networked Salamanca family and savvy drug dealer Gus Fring.
In the season finale, Jimmy and Kim try to elude Lalo Salamanca by hiding in a downtown hotel. Lalo is intended to be killed by Mike, but Lalo survives unharmed.
Another later development shows Kim's moral shift as she starts to think like Jim, although she remains committed to her pro bono job. Jimmy and Kim are left talking on the bed in the last seconds, a cloud of doubt hanging over their heads.
Lalo might even seek retribution in the impending final season of the show, and Jimmy might have to pay the price. We all recognize Jimmy's face as he enters Walter White's life, but we don't know what happens to Kim, and in a world where blood has stained everything grey, we don't have high hopes for Kim's future.
Nevertheless, we may be sure that the conclusion of the McGill saga will bring up some astounding revelations.
