Better Call Saul Has Been Renewed For A Sixth And Final Season
Those who have been waiting with bated breath to learn more about the future of Better Call Saul will be thrilled to know that a sixth season has been announced.
But sadly, it will also be the last instalment of the Breaking Bad prequel.
The show follows star man Bob Odenkirk's character Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill as he goes from con artist to dodgy lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Producers say they have squeezed just about everything they could from the show, and the final season will wrap up everything in a nice little bow.
Executive producer Peter Gould told audiences at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour: "From the beginning when we started this, I think all our hopes and dreams were to be able to tell the whole story... and make it to be a complete story from beginning to end.
"We're going to try like hell to stick the landing of these 63 episodes."
It's not yet known where the show will end, with Gould and fellow executive producer (and co-creator) Vince Gilligan avoiding the topic.
When asked if it will finish right when Breaking Bad starts or go further, Gilligan simply replied: "Maybe it's all of the above."

The Hollywood Reporter says the final season will get 13 episodes and we can expect them to be released in 2021.
Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, says it's very emotional saying goodbye to such an incredible show.
"Green-lighting a prequel to one of the most iconic series in television history is one of the boldest swings that AMC has ever taken," she said.
"But, thanks to the creative genius of Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, it has also been one of the most rewarding.
"It has been an absolute joy to collaborate with the extraordinarily talented team on Better Call Saul, which - five seasons in - continues to deliver some of the best storytelling and most beautifully nuanced performances on television today.
"We congratulate Vince, Peter, our producers, writers and cast on a remarkable run and look forward to sharing this final chapter with fans."
Season five will premiere next month and then there will be a long wait before we see how it all ends.
