Buckle your seatbelt because Better Call Saul Season 6 updates are finally here. The show’s executive producer and director, Vince Gilligan, has already said that the new season will be “big.” But when can we see it? We’re not sure yet.
In an interview with Collider Gilligan said he was waiting for “the right time” to release season six of the show. He added:
“I don’t know how much longer than a year it could take us… I’m going to say this: It’ll be worth the wait.” So buckle up! You won’t have to wait too long before you get some answers on what might happen next for Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut).”
Better Call Saul is a spinoff show of one of the biggest hits on TV, i.e., The Breaking Bad. ‘Breaking Bad’ first premiered back in 2015 and has been recognized as one of the Best Television Series of all time. Even the show itself, ‘Better Call Saul,’ is rated 8.7/10 in IMDb.
The show stars Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman with other recurring members such as Jonathan Banks and Giancarlo Esposito. The guest stars like Lavell Crawford and Dean Norris have also been featured in this series.
In a recent interview, Odenkirk also revealed that there is a possibility that Better Call Saul Season 6 might feature Walter White returning on the big screen once again. Earlier the season 6 was planned to get into production by September 2020, but due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the show’s production was delayed. But now the production has officially started for season 6.

Better Call Saul Season 6: What can we expect from season 6?
By the end of Season 6, we had witnessed Kim quitting her job and is planning to destroy Howard Hamlin’s life which is quite shocking for Saul. On the other hand, we saw Gus sending his men to kill Lalo, and he wants Nacho involved in his plan. But just before Gus’s men attacked, Lalo Nacho managed to escape the scene. And Lalo, on the other hand, tends to kill all the GUS’s men except one, and he makes the survivor a false report to GUS saying Lalo is dead.
It is expected that Season 6 will start from where season 5 had ended. One of the biggest questions after the cliffhanger of season 5 was, “will Lalo take revenge for the conspiracy?” or do the writers have something else on their mind, which the viewers might not expect. In the conclusion of season 5, we saw Nacho Vargaconspiring tried to Lalo, but somehow Lalo escaped his death.
We can expect Nacho now to be stuck between GUS and Lalo. On the other hand, as Lalo has survived the attack, he will not go down quickly without a fight for sure. He will be going to go behind GUS now.
Better Call Saul Season 6 Release Date: When Will It Arrive?
The previous season of Better Call Saul was released on Feb 2020 on AMC. And after that, the series was announced for season 6. But till now, the showrunner hasn’t revealed the exact release date of Better Call Saul Season 6.
It was renewed for a season 6 back in 2020, beginning but due to the COVID-19 Pandemic regulations but the cast and crew of the series could not start the filming.
