Better Call Saul is coming to an end. The final season of the lauded AMC series will line up with the beginning of Breaking Bad, beginning with the Season 6 premiere on April 18. And in this TV Insider exclusive, Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy McGill begins his descent into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman.
Better Call Saul Season 6 returns with two back-to-back-episodes on Monday, April 18 on AMC and AMC+. The final season’s 13 episodes will be broken up into two parts. The first seven episodes begin April 18, and the last six episodes begin July 11.
Season 6 “concludes the complicated journey and transformation of its compromised hero, Jimmy McGill, into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman,” AMC teases of the final episodes. “From the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, Season 6 tracks Jimmy, Saul, and Gene as well as Jimmy’s complex relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn), who is in the midst of her own existential crisis. Meanwhile, Mike (Jonathan Banks), Gus (Giancarlo Esposito), Nacho (Michael Mando), and Lalo (Tony Dalton) are locked into a game of cat and mouse with mortal stakes.”
