Better Call Saul Season 6 is set to premiere soon, but not very soon. As of writing, the official premiere date for the hit AMC TV series hasn't been announced. But it's highly likely for Better Call Saul Season 6, Episode 1 to air next year.

For now, the cast and crew are filming for the upcoming episodes in Albuquerque. And executive producer Thomas Schnauz previously told Den of Geek that production is moving slowly but steadily. They are started filming the scenes that didn't include Bob Odernkirk.

After all, the actor collapsed on set while filming his scenes. And he later revealed that he suffered a minor heart attack. Luckily, Odenkirk has recovered, and he's set to reprise his role as Saul Goodman in Better Call Saul Season 6.

There are plenty of exciting storylines in store for fans of Better Call Saul.

Better Call Saul Season 5 ended with a major cliffhanger involving Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton). After surviving last season's assassination attempt, Lalo will most likely seek revenge from those that tried to kill him.

The upcoming episodes of Better Call Saul Season 6 will also shed light on what really happened to Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn).

While speaking with The Guardian, Odernkirk said that he knows for a fact that Kim is still alive.

"I think she's in Albuquerque, and she's still practicing law. He's still crossing paths with her. To me, that would fuel his desire to be on billboards everywhere, because he wants her to see him," he said.

And during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Odenkirk insisted that major storylines are awaiting the beloved character.

"Kim would be a super-powered lawyer with the white-shoe law firm, and he would be the complete scumbag ambulance chaser across town. And at night, they go home, take off their disguises and be kind to each other. I don't think that's where we're going to go, but in real life, those weird and seemingly conflicting relationships can be very real. They can happen. It's probably easy to think that Kim dies, or that anyone who's not visible passes away. But there's still a lot of people who die on these shows; the stakes are high," he said.

Better Call Saul Season 6, Episode 1 is fittingly titled Bad Choice Road. And it will center on Kim seemingly making tough choices.

During an interview with The Wrap, Seehorn dished on the direction that her character, Kim would be taking.

"Kim hates being told how to feel or what to do, or who she is. She really loathes it. Would she really do these things? And even if she wouldn't, she's saying them as though they're a game, in a way that she really detests in a lot of other people at this point – playing games with the law and playing with people's lives," she said.

The additional episodes seemingly exist to ensure that all the loose ends in the series will be tied before Better Call Saul goes off the air for good.

According to reports, it's unlikely for AMC to split Better Call Saul Season 6 into half like what happened with the final season of Breaking Bad.

Showrunner and executive producer Peter Gould told The Hollywood Reporter that if it were up to him, he doesn't want the entire season to be split into two. But he also understands if AMC decides to do it this way because it might be good for them.

There was also a slew of cameos from Better Call Saul Season 5 like Dean Norris' character, Hank Schrader, and Robert Forster's Ed Galbraith. The latter could no longer return because he recently succumbed to brain cancer. However, there's always hope for Norris to reprise his role.

One of the biggest questions ahead of the premiere of Better Call Saul Season 6 is whether audiences will get to see Breaking Bad stars, Brian Cranston and Aaron Paul.

Since Better Call Saul is a prequel to Breaking Bad, fans couldn't help but hope for Cranston and Paul's cameo.

While speaking with Digital Spy, Paul admitted that he loves Better Call Saul. However, he doesn't see how his character, Jesse Pinkman could be written into the series.

Cranston, on the other hand, is more open to the idea of reprising his role as Walter White.

"I would be in [Better Call Saul] if Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who are co-executive producers on it, wanted me to be in it. I'd do it in a second. But it hasn't happened yet. There's one more season to go and we'll see what happens," he told Collider.

Cranston also said that he's been asked to direct episodes of Better Call Saul but it has never happened because of his schedule.
