Here’s why ‘Better Call Saul” series come to an end after 6 seasons
After six seasons and 63 episodes, Better Call Saul is no longer on the air. This month saw the culmination of the Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould-starring Shakespearean courtroom drama. Additionally, in a world full of unanticipated extended seasons and one-offs, this is one show that we are relatively certain has ended fully.
The current discussion is about Better Call Saul’s potential seventh season. Without a doubt, there won’t. And after viewing “Saul Gone,” you understand why. The Better Call Saul season six finale made it abundantly clear how Saul Goodman’s quest and criminal career came to an end.
Better Call Saul comes to a close in the episode “Saul Gone.” This may potentially be the final episode of the entire Breaking Bad universe. During a discussion for the series during the Television Critics Association’s summer tour of 2022, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, the series co-creators, talked about whether they would be open to developing another television program or motion picture based in this setting.
The timelines of the two shows have been merged, but a sizable amount of Better Call Saul’s final season also concentrated on Jimmy and Saul’s post-Breaking Bad lives. He was briefly teased as being Gene Takovic, a Cinnabon manager in Omaha, Nebraska, at the start of each season, but the final run goes into much more detail about what happened to him.
Jimmy’s story, in particular, comes to a natural conclusion when he is finally apprehended by the law, and an unexpected reunion with Kim prompts him to ponder for a rare moment and admit to his numerous sins. Since Jimmy is likely to remain in prison for the foreseeable future and there is no longer a pre-Breaking Bad tale to tell, any upcoming seasons would therefore have nowhere to go.
The world that Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould constructed in Better Call Saul may have come to an end, but it may still be seen in upcoming episodes.
In June of this year, Dan McDermott, the president of AMC Networks’ entertainment division and AMC Studios, said that “the door is always open” for future spin-offs.
