The sixth and final season of ‘Better Call Saul’ will start with a two-episode premiere on April 18. The first half of the season of the Breaking Bad spin-off consists of seven episodes. The second half of the season will premiere on July 11.
According to the official synopsis, the final chapter of season 5 will “conclude the complicated journey and transformation of its compromised hero, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. From the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, season six tracks Jimmy, Saul and Gene (Jimmy’s post-Breaking Bad identity, hiding away managing a Cinnabon) as well as Jimmy’s complex relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn), who is in the midst of her own existential crisis. Meanwhile, Mike (Jonathan Banks), Gus (Giancarlo Esposito), Nacho (Michael Mando), and Lalo (Tony Dalton) are locked into a game of cat and mouse with mortal stakes.”
Yesterday an amazing crew of people finished shooting “Better Call Saul” in Albuquerque, NM. It began in 2014, with great writing always leading the charge, and despite challenges of all kinds, our energy and care never flagged. I am honored to have been part of it. pic.twitter.com/6tJICNbleh

“In my eyes, this is our most ambitious, surprising and, yes, heartbreaking season. Even under incredibly challenging circumstances, the whole Saul team — writers, cast, producers, directors and crew — have outdone themselves. I couldn’t be more excited to share what we’ve accomplished together,” said Showrunner and Executive Producer Peter Gould.
Earlier this week (February 10) Odenkirk confirmed that the season had wrapped filming. Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “Yesterday an amazing crew of people finished shooting Better Call Saul in Albuquerque, NM.
