The final season follows Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) final transformation into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman.

“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 Better Call Saul‘s showrunner and executive producer, Peter Gould following the announcement.
