There is a new enemy on the set of Better Call Saul season 5 — consider this one the squirrel who knocks.
In a humorous couple of posts on Twitter, executive producer Tom Schnauz confirmed that while he was serving as director, he ran into a most-unfortunate circumstance when a squirrel decided to wage chaos. In his words, they got into a transformer and, consequently, shut down power at the entire Albuquerque studio where the series films. Because of that, filming was shut down until the electrical department could get some generators up and running. Consider this a reminder that anything can happen anywhere within the world of production … and there’s no such thing as a set devoid of any distractions.

The cast and crew of Better Call Saul are closing in on production for the latest batch of episodes, which are slated to premiere on AMC at some point in early 2020. There are no plans for season 5 to be the final ones, but it does feel more and more like the producers are starting to figure out what they want the end of the story to look like. That’s important at this stage of the game — they want to make sure that they’re crafting something that feels fitting to the journey of not just this show, but of Breaking Bad. We want to see closure of Jimmy/Saul in the past, but also Gene in the future. That’s without even mentioning whatever could happen to Kim Wexler, the character who still has the most overall question marks hanging over her. Will she make it to the future, or will she die or depart, never to see Jimmy again?
Also, we kinda want to see the squirrel sarcastically mentioned in the Special Thanks credits at the end of the season. They can become the show’s version of Gus Fring.
