‘Better Call Saul’ Showrunner Shares Season 6 Set Photo and Fans Are Pumped

Fans are absolutely thrilled for every update about the final season of Better Call Saul. It’s bittersweet to find out that filming has finally begun on the Breaking Bad spinoff prequel. On one hand, fans are clamoring to find out what happens to Jimmy McGill. But on the other, they know season 6 means the end of Better Call Saul.

Between the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the typical long delay between season, fans feel like they’ve been waiting forever for the next part of Jimmy’s story. But a recent photo showrunner Peter Gould posted on Twitter proves the wait for Better Call Saul Season 6 is almost over.

It’ll be here before we know it. Fans already heard the rumors that Better Call Saul writers were improvising during the Hollywood shutdowns, participating in Zoom meetings to write scripts and collaborating with each other using technology instead of in person.

Plus, lead actor Bob Odenkirk explained that all the actors were living in a house together in Albuquerque as a way to keep everyone safe during filming. Thanks to these clever workarounds, it appears the series is on track for an early 2022 premiere. And now they’re one step closer to that end.

A lot of the updates on the Better Call Saul Season 6 status have come from rumors and hearsay. But then Gould shared a photo from the set that proves filming is underway, which means everything is moving along in the right direction.

“Yes!  And awaaaaaaaay we go!  BCS S6 D1!” the tweet caption read. The image showed an image of Odenkirk dressed in his Gene Takovic outfit, proving the series will be spending time on the flash-forward scenes that are set in a post-Breaking Bad world.

The photo also showed that the Season 6 premiere will be directed by Michael Morris, a Better Call Saul veteran who worked on three episodes so far. The cinematographer, Marshall Adams, worked with Vince Gilligan on El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.

Season 6 of ‘Better Call Saul’ could be the best one yet

Better Call Saul has always been heavy on character development and lighter on action, especially compared to Breaking Bad. But season 5 changed all that by including some of the tensest, most emotionally charged and dramatic scenes in the series.

Fans are anxious to find out what happens to Lalo Salamanca as he begins his quest for revenge against Nacho. They’re also intrigued by Kim Wexler’s apparent foray into shady dealings.

The final events of Better Call Saul should catch up the story to the Breaking Bad timeline. Plus, fans will find out what happens to Saul, who’s living as Gene Takovic in Omaha, after his cover gets blown. Every event is lining up to make this one dramatic conclusion.

“I can’t wait for the fireworks, really,” Odenkirk told Deadline about the final season. “Our show is a bit of a slow burn over the past few years, and [Gilligan and Gould] build up. There’s certainly exciting moments throughout, but towards the end, it gets super supremely intense.”

Fans cannot wait to see what happens next. It won’t be long now.
