‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6: Everything You Should Know Before…


Bob has returned! Following his hospitalization, Bob Odenkirk has returned to set to finish filming the sixth and final season. Here are the most recent updates.

It’s difficult to duplicate the charm of the original series in spinoffs and prequels. Better Call Saul is one of the rare shows that has outperformed expectations and become as popular as AMC’s Breaking Bad. The filming of Better Call Saul season 6 has resumed after a brief interruption.

Following his hospitalization after falling on the set of the show in New Mexico, Bob Odenkirk is back on set filming again. On September 8, he posted a photo of himself and said he was “happy” to be back. Everything you need to know about the last season is right here on HollywoodLife, including the release date, cast, and more.

The Show So Far

Jimmy McGill’s evolution into the one and only Saul Goodman is chronicled in Better Call Saul. At the start of Better Call Saul, Jimmy is a former con artist attempting to become a respectable lawyer. He slowly but steadily transforms into the morally ambiguous criminal defense attorney we initially met on Breaking Bad. The show takes place six years before the events of Breaking Bad.

For the first time in Season 5, Jimmy practiced law under the name Saul Goodman. Better Call Saul has always had a predetermined ending, so there’s no guessing what will happen to Jimmy/Saul. However, the path to Breaking Bad is a little hazy.

In the season 5 finale, Howard confronts Kim about her moral compass. Jimmy isn’t good for Kim, according to Howard, and she had to leave her law business because of him. Kim takes the stand and defends herself. When Kim devises a scheme to assassinate Howard, settle the Sandpiper case, and amass a large sum of money, Jimmy begins to suspect her. In the “cold light of day,” he doesn’t think she’d be alright with it in the end. “Wouldn’t I?” she responds.

Kim rises from her seat and walks away from Jimmy. Kim starts shooting finger guns at Jimmy when he calls for her and she turns around. This scene echoed Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman in the season 4 finale, when he told her, “It’s all okay, man!”

Meanwhile, Lalo evaded his attempted assassination. In season 6, he’ll be out for vengeance. Given what Saul says to Walt and Jesse when he initially appears on Breaking Bad, Lalo may survive whatever happens in season 6. “Can you tell me who sent you? “Was it Lalo?” says the narrator. Saul inquired.

‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6

AMC renewed Better Call Saul for a sixth and final season in January 2020. The news was announced at the winter press tour of the Television Critics Association. Season 5 premiered before the announcement was made. In February 2020, the fifth season began. The prequel was given the go light for a 13-episode final season, which was supposed to start filming in 2020 and premiere in 2021. Netflix presently has the first five seasons available to view.

In a statement, showrunner and executive producer Peter Gould stated, “From day one of Better Call Saul, my aim was to tell the whole tale of our multifaceted and compromised hero, Jimmy McGill — now AMC and Sony are making that dream come true.” “We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the supporters and critics who have helped us get here. We start work on the sixth and final season next month, and we’re going to do everything we can to make it work.”

The launch of Better Call Saul’s last season has been postponed because to the COVID-19 epidemic. Because of the epidemic, Better Call Saul, like most other productions, had difficulty filming. According to TVLine, AMC Networks head Josh Sapan announced in February 2021 that Better Call Saul season 6 would “likely” be released in the first quarter of 2022.

In April 2020, the season finale of Better Call Saul aired. If the sixth and final season does not premiere until 2022, it will have been at least two years since new episodes have been released.

Season 6 is presently under production as of August 2021. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Season 6 filming was more than halfway completed when Bob Odenkirk died of a heart attack on the location in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in July 2021. To give Bob time to recover, production was suspended.

Bob enjoys being as astonished as the fans when it comes to story points for the final season. “I enjoy being astonished, just like a story’s audience. In June 2021, he told The Guardian, “I have my own theories, but they’re largely fan theories.” He even shared his Kim Wexler notion with the world. He went on to say, “I don’t think she dies.” “I believe she is still practicing law in Albuquerque. He’s still stumbling across her. That, in my opinion, would drive his desire to be on billboards all over the place because he wants her to see him.”

Bob Odenkirk’s Health

On July 27, Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul Goodman on Better Call Saul, was transported to the hospital after falling on the set of the show in Albuquerque. Bob’s representatives provided an update on his status a day after he was admitted to the hospital.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, his agents said in a statement, “We can confirm Bob is in stable condition after experiencing a heart-related episode.” “He and his family want to thank the amazing physicians and nurses who have cared for him, as well as his cast, crew, and producers who have stood by his side. The Odenkirks would also like to thank everyone for their good wishes and respectfully request their privacy while Bob recovers.”

“Bob is someone we have known and been fortunate enough to work with for a long time,” AMC said in a statement. The outpouring of love and concern from fans all throughout the world demonstrates his enormous talents and capacity to both move and delight people. We, like everyone else, are relieved to learn that he is in good health and receiving wonderful care. We are keeping him in our thoughts and hoping him a speedy and complete recovery.”

“Bob has been a part of our Sony Pictures family for many years, and we are privileged to be able to collaborate with such a wonderfully talented, incredible human being,” Sony Pictures Television stated. We are keeping him and his family in our prayers, along with millions of fans and supporters around the world, and wishing him the best of luck in his recovery.”

He’s going to be okay.

On July 28, Bob Odenkirk’s son, Nate Odenkirk, tweeted, “He’s going to be okay.” Bob contacted worried followers on Twitter two days later and provided an update on his health.

“Hi. It’s Bob on the line. Thank you very much. To my loved ones who have been by my side this week. Also, thank you to everyone who expressed concern and love for me. It’s exhausting. But I feel the love, and that means a lot to me,” he wrote in his first tweet.

“I had a little heart attack,” he continued. But, due to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who figured out how to correct the blockage without surgery, I’ll be fine. AMC and SONY have also been tremendously kind and helpful throughout this process. I’m taking a break to rest, but I’ll be back soon.”

On September 8, less than two months after suffering a heart attack on set, Bob returned to work. He shared a picture of himself getting his hair and makeup done. “It’s time to get back to work on Better Call Saul! I’m very grateful to be here and to be living this particular life surrounded by such wonderful people. BTW, this is makeup artist Cheri Montesanto, who is helping me seem good for the camera!” Bob sent out a tweet.

Back to work on Better Call Saul! So happy to be here and living this specific life surrounded by such good people. BTW this is makeup pro Cheri Montesanto making me not ugly for shooting! pic.twitter.com/lTAfPg7dDp

Season 6 Cast

Bob Odenkirk (Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman/Gene Takavic) will reprise his role as Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman/Gene Takavic in Season 6. Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, Michael Mando as Nacho Varga, and Tony Dalton as Lalo Salamanca are among the returning cast members.

Better Call Saul hasn’t revealed any new cast members for its final season, but more Breaking Bad characters are expected to appear. Hank Schrader, played by Dean Norris, and his sidekick Steve Gomez, played by Steven Michael Quezada, made an appearance in season 5. They might show up in Season 6 as well.

Because Better Call Saul precedes Breaking Bad, many fans have speculated whether Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, two of the show’s most devoted followers, will appear in the final season. Bryan Cranston is excited about the prospect of resuming his role as Walter White on Better Call Saul.

Bryan told Collider in August 2020, “I would be in it if Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who are co-executive producers on it, wanted me to be in it.” “I’d do it in a heartbeat. But, as far as I know, it hasn’t happened yet, and we’ll see. I’m not sure. There’s still one more season to go, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens!”

Aaron Paul, on the other hand, does not believe that bringing Jesse back as a guest star would be a good idea. El Camino, the Breaking Bad movie, he saw as a farewell to the character. Aaron told Digital Spy, “I’m such a big fan of that show.” “However, there’s no need for him to be at that location and at that time in recent seasons, especially now that we know where Jesse is. I don’t think he’ll appear in Better Call Saul.”

Before his death in 2019, Robert Forster resumed his role as Ed the Disappearer on Better Call Saul. Peter Gould, one of the show’s co-creators, said that he wishes they had spent more time with Robert. Peter told EW, “I think if Vince and I had our way, we would’ve done a lot more together.” “Having him on the show is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And, of course, it’s entirely natural because we didn’t realize it was our last chance.”

Bob was still unsure where Saul Goodman would end up by the end of the series in June 2021. He told Digital Spy, “I have extremely mixed thoughts.” “I don’t think you can watch the program or play this character without rooting for him to succeed, and liking him and wanting to be a better version of himself is really all I want. But I’m not convinced that’s where he’ll wind up.”

“I like him,” he added. I believe he possesses some valuable abilities. He just hasn’t figured out where to put them. But, because I’ve played him for so long, I’ll be pleased to go on to other characters.”

Bob was able to tease the explosive final season in greater detail in a separate interview. In February 2021, Bob told Collider, “I’m told the wheels come off in season 6 and it explodes in a million directions.” “It sounds like there’s a lot of violence there, but I can’t say for sure.

We have a discussion in which I argue that Walter White has devolved into an angry, broken version of himself. I’m wondering if it’s feasible to write — because I like the guy — if it’s possible to give Jimmy McGill a better finale, a better place to end in than where he began. But I’m not sure if they’ll go through with it.”

Peter Gould, co-creator of Better Call Saul, said that when the show ends, you’ll see Breaking Bad in a whole new light. “I think you’ll see Breaking Bad in a whole new perspective by the time you finish watching Better Call Saul,” Peter told THR. “I believe we’ll learn new facts about the characters in Breaking Bad that we didn’t know before.

We’ll learn stuff about Breaking Bad’s events that we didn’t know before. And we’re going to find out stuff about the fates of a lot of these folks that will either surprise or cast them in a new light. I think we started this 2007, so that’s 13 years of effort that’s distilled, that all has to go together. Like a perfectly put-together jigsaw puzzle, hopefully. I’m not sure if all of the joints will be perfectly level. I certainly hope so. We’ll do everything we can to sand it down.”
