Streaming Guide to ‘Breaking Bad’ Universe After ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6 Finale
Better Call Saul is officially over, but there are still plenty of ways you can stream the AMC series, the predecessor Breaking Bad, and the Netflix film El Camino. Find out where to watch Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul now that the series finale has aired, including details on how to watch the episodes from Better Call Saul Season 6 for free.
Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are done with the ‘Breaking Bad’ universe for now
Better Call Saul is the prequel series to Breaking Bad that tells the origin story of Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), who was formerly Jimmy McGill. The spinoff also touches on Saul’s life after Breaking Bad when he assumes a new identity, Gene Takavic.
Despite how well received Better Call Saul has been, showrunnners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould don’t have plans to do another show within the Breaking Bad universe. “You can’t keep putting all your money on red 21,” Gilligan said during a virtual TCA panel (via Deadline).
He added: “I feel like we probably pushed it doing a spinoff to Breaking Bad [but] I could not be more happy with the results. Then I did El Camino and I’m very proud of that too. But I think I’m starting to sense you’ve got to know when to leave the party, you don’t want to be the guy with a lampshade on your head.”
Despite Gilligan’s comment, he and Gould did caution: “never say never.” Until then, there are plenty of ways to rewatch Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

If you want to jump right into a Breaking Bad rewatch after Better Call Saul ends, you can access all five seasons on Netflix. The original series starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will be available to stream until at least Feb. 10, 2025 according to What’s on Netflix.
El Camino, the Breaking Bad movie, could also be removed from the streaming platform in 2025. However, Netflix may have licensed El Camino for the standard 10 years, which means it could be available up until Apr. 18, 2029. Either way, at publication Netflix is the only way to stream El Camino.
