Right off the bat, you should probably know that Better Call Saul Season 6, like other AMC series Mad Men and The Walking Dead, as well as fellow crime drama Ozark, is divided up into two parts.
The first seven episodes will premiere on Apr. 19 and will finish on May 23. The show will then go on a pause until July 11th, when the final six episodes will run until the show concludes.
How will Better Call Saul Season 6 Start?
We now have the overviews and director/writer credits for the first two episodes, Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode, titled Wine and Roses; and Episode 2, titled Carrot and Stick, in addition to the season overview. And what's the most important thing we've learned? It's not a good time to be Nacho (Michael Mando) right now.
Better Call Saul's final season finalizes the journey and transformation of its compromised hero, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. From the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, season six 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.
Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 1 & 2 Details
Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 1 - Wine and Roses: Nacho runs for his life. Jimmy and Kim hatch a plan. Mike questions his allegiances. Directed by Michael Morris and written by Peter Gould.
Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 2 - Carrot and Stick: Harsh realities dawn on Nacho. Gus investigates his suspicions. Directed by Vince Gilligan and written by Tom Schnauz & Ariel Levine.
When is the Better Call Saul Season 6 Finale?
The season (and series) finale of Better Call Saul will premiere on Aug.15.
Better Call Saul Season 6 will have more fleshed-out flash-forwards of Jimmy as Gene Takavic, a Cinnabon manager who has appeared intermittently throughout the series, according to showrunner Peter Gould. That begs the question of whether Jimmy/Saul/Gene will meet his end in the black and white of a strip mall.
