If you liked Breaking Bad, you probably also like Better Call Saul, but to be fair, you could like one without the other as they feel like separate stories. However, one thing is certain, and that’s the inevitable catch up of Better Call Saul towards where Breaking Bad begins.

We have always known that Better Call Saul would be nearing its end point as we move closer and close to the Breaking Bad timeline, we just didn’t know exactly when that would be. Better Call Saul is currently in production for the fifth season of the show and now thanks to actor Giancarlo Esposito who plays the menacing Gus Frings in both shows, we may have an end date. Esposito told THR that the plan as far as he knows, is to end with Season 6.

“It’s tricky with [co-creator Vince Gilligan], If you look at the Breaking Bad model, he said five years, five seasons, but it was really five and six” (the final season was split in two)

As for Better Call Saul,

“There will be six seasons,” Esposito said. “It seems like that’s the way, the comfortable way, to end this show.”

Now it has to be stressed that actors are not always as much in the loop about these things as we might expect and after THR reached out to AMC they declined to comment, but one of the outlet’s sources actually said that the plan for the show’s end is by no means set in stone. Of course, that doesn’t mean they don’t still plan to end it after Season 6 does it?

The thing is, it cannot really carry on for too much longer because when you look at the timeline, we are getting ever closer now to that Breaking Bad era which has already been told. With a show like Better Call Saul, it’s better to plan the end and deliver on it, like Breaking Bad did before it. We also have that Breaking Bad sequel movie to look forward to as well and that definitely has me interested to see more of this fictional universe.

What do you think of Esposito’s comments, would you be sad to see Better Call Saul end at the close of Season 6, or just happy if it ends in a satisfying way? Slipping Jimmy some comments down in the usual spot below.
