The final season of Better Call Saul is slated to be the final time Bob Odenkirk portrays ‘Slippin’ Jimmy McGill, concluding his transition into Saul Goodman as the prequel approaches the events of Breaking Bad.
The series conclusion of Better Call Saul is indeed months away. Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould co-created spinoff with a two-episode Season 6 launch on April 18, the two-part finale season will show its last six episodes beginning July 11 and ending in August.
While talking to Variety about wrapping the film series, Odenkirk said,
[It sunk in Saul was ending] a few weeks ago. It hasn’t hit me yet. I have to watch the end. I really feel like when I watch the finale is when it will hit me.
He also added,
It’s weird, but we’ve been planning it and writing it, [Gilligan and Gould] have been writing it for years, and we always take breaks between seasons — we even had a big, long break because of Covid — so my brain is kind of like, ‘When are we going back?’ I think the truth is when I see it, even though I’ve played it already, even though I did it, when I see it I think it will have great closure.
Upon asking Bob Odenkirk of what will startle fans more than anything in this season finale of Better Call Saul. He says,
I could tell you in two words, but I can’t tell you.
Fans are excited to see him and the series finale!
