While it’s been over two years since Better Call Saul’s season 5 conclusion, the last season of Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) transformation into Saul Goodman is just around the corner.
Better Caul Saul’s co-creators, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have kept quiet about the potential of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad appearing on the show since season 1 premiered in 2015.
Gould, the show’s co-creator, has now announced that Cranston and Paul will appear as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, respectively, in the Breaking Bad spinoff.
Additionally, the Better Call Saul Twitter account has provided us with an early peek into what we can expect to see when the show returns.
In an appearance on a Better Call Saul panel at PaleyFest, Gould revealed the news (via Variety).
When we launched the show, one of the first questions we received was, ‘Are we going to see Walt and Jesse on the show?'” she said. Rather than avoiding the question, I’ll just say yes, Gould stated on the panel.
One of the many things I think you’ll discover this season is how or the conditions or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself.
Actor Bob Odenkirk hinted that there was more to come before Gould cut him off.
Better Call Saul Season 6 Plot
You can read the official synopsis for Better Call Saul’s season 6 below. The narrative elements are being kept under wraps.
Jimmy McGill’s evolution into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman is brought to a close in Better Call Saul’s final season.
Season six follows Jimmy, Saul, and Gene as they travel from Albuquerque to Omaha, as well as Jimmy’s complicated relationship with Kim, who is going through her own existential crisis.
With their lives in jeopardy at risk, Mike, Gus, Nacho, and Lalo are engaged in a cat-and-mouse game.
Season 5 ended with Jimmy and Kim getting dangerously near to the cartel’s business, while Howard Hamlin’s life appeared to be in jeopardy. The Salamanca compound was hit by Gus and Lalo survived, therefore Nacho helped Gus with the hit, but Lalo will be out for retribution.
Gus also needs to find Nacho to keep the young drug dealer from linking him to the heist. But there’s bound to be a lot more in store for us in the remaining 13-episodes, so keep your eyes peeled.
Much sooner rather than later. Season 6 of Better Call Saul premieres on April 18th, and here at Den of Geek, we’ll be breaking down every episode as it airs.
