"Better Call Saul" returns for Season 5 on Sunday, February 23rd. Here's everything you needed to know about the second-to-last season of the show:
What is “Better Call Saul” about?
“Better Call Saul” is a “Breaking Bad” prequel set six years before the start of the show. It follows con-man turned small-town attorney Jimmy McGill as he hustles to make ends-meet. McGill’s morally questionable decisions slowly set him on the path towards becoming his alter ego, Saul Goodman, an attorney notorious for representing drug dealers like Walter White.
What is the plot for "Better Call Saul" Season 5?
Jimmy’s “Breaking Bad” alter ego will fully “come to life” in season five, AMC teased. The official synopsis for season five reveals that “Jimmy finally makes the decision that changes everything — to practice law as Saul Goodman.”
The season opens with one of the standard black-and-white flashforwards that that show has become known for. We see McGill peeking through blinds as he hunkers down in his apartment, fearing that his cover has been blown.
Then, all too quickly we’re back in the past and Saul is trying to sell his girlfriend, Kim Wexler, on a “fresh start.”
The "Breaking Bad" tie-in is fast approaching. In season five, we can expect to see Jimmy fully assume his smarmy Saul Goodman persona. We’ll see his path take him farther from the one Kim Wexler wants him to walk, and closer to drug dealing rivals Gus Fring and Lalo Salamanca. Perhaps one of the most tell-tale signs that the series is drawing to a close is the inclusion of DEA Agent Hank Schrader, played Dean Norris.
Who’s starring in “Better Call Saul” Season 5?
Season five will see the return of popular characters like Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian), Nacho Varga (Michael Mando), Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) and Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton).
Both Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul recently said they’d be interested in reprising their “Breaking Bad” roles for a full tie-in with “Better Call Saul.” As of the premiere, neither has been confirmed for season five or season six.
When Does "Better Call Saul" Season 5 Premiere?
“Better Call Saul” premieres on Sunday, February 23rd at 10 p.m. EST on AMC. Season 5 will last just 10 episodes and episode two, titled "50% Off," will premiere on February 24th, in the show’s regular Monday timeslot. Seasons 1-4 are available on Netflix.
Will there be a “Better Call Saul” Season 6?
AMC has already renewed “Better Call Saul” for its sixth and final season. Check back for more information about the show’s finale.
