Better Call Saul season 5: The future won’t be changed by El Camino
Going into El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie this past weekend, we wondered if there was going to be a chance to learn about the future of Better Call Saul. We wanted a chance to see Kim Wexler, for example, and know that she is still alive and out there.
Yet, in the end, El Camino opted to not really spoil much of anything when it comes to the endgame of Better Call Saul, and as it turns out, that was very much the plan. Speaking via the Hollywood Reporter in a new interview, executive producer Vince Gilligan made it clear that he had some conversations early on with Better Call Saul’s Peter Gould, and had no intention of messing with however that show is going to end:
“I don’t know that Peter and the writers have the entire ending figured out yet, which is no surprise, because we didn’t have the ending of Breaking Bad entirely figured out … But we all put our heads together and tried to figure out what possible pitfalls there may be, and it seems to be the case that we will not screw up Saul. That would be my worst fear. It’s such a d–n good show, I wouldn’t want to do anything to damage it.”
As of right now, we know that there is going to be one more season of Better Call Saul — and maybe even two! We think that the likely scenario at the moment is going to be for the series to end after season 6, mostly so that you can both finish out the present story for Jimmy/Saul and then give us more of a good sense as to what’s coming up with Gene down the road.
Better Call Saul season 5 will premiere on AMC in 2020.
Do you have a good sense of what you want the ending of Better Call Saul to be?
