About Season 6 of Better Call Saul
AMC released the official trailer for Better Call Saul Season 6 last month and gave a glimpse into the final season. Season 5 of the series ended with Kim Wexler wanting to adjust her morals by sabotaging Howard Hamlin. Meanwhile, Mike and Nacho Varga organize a botched hit on Lalo Salamanca, which ended with Lalo's family dead and Nacho being responsible for the same.
The trailer for Season 6 shows the fallout from both events, as Kim and Jimmy go against Howard while Lalo seeks revenge on Nacho and Mike. It also teased McGill's ascent into the operations of the drug cartel and his relationship with Kim. Days of Wines and Roses by Andy Williams can be heard in the background, adding to the threat of violence in the final season but also evoking the finality.
The sixth season of the series was expected to air in 2021 but production was delayed due to the Covid pandemic. During filming, Bob Odenkirk also suffered a heart attack on set which further delayed production, but thankfully he has since made a full recovery.
The series is produced by Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz, and Sony Pictures Television. Better Call Saul will air in two parts on AMC, with Part 1 premiering with two back-to-back episodes on April 18 with a total of seven episodes. Part 2 will premiere on July 11 with the remaining six episodes.
Stream the series, Season 1 to 5, on Netflix before the premiere of Season 6 on April 18.
