Jimmy McGill’s final voyage is approaching. Better Call Saul Season 6 will be the program’s final season, and it will see the final transformation of loveable up-and-coming lawyer Jimmy McGill into scummy criminal (emphasis on criminal) lawyer Saul Goodman once and for all.
If Breaking Bad was about one man’s transformation from Mr. Chips to Scarface, Better Call Saul is about a man torn between the idealized version of himself that he knows he can be and the less than the reputable version of himself that the rest of the world views him as. This season, the idealized version will lose, but he’ll go out on a high note.
Release Date for Season 6 of Better Call Saul
Better Call Saul is finally set to launch Monday, April 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC and AMC Plus in the United States, after a nearly two-year wait, a forced delay due to the pandemic, and a significant health concern for star Bob Odenkirk.
Two-hour-long programs will make up the premiere. Following that, fresh episodes will air weekly on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The first two episodes of Better Call Saul season 6 will be available on Netflix in the United Kingdom on April 19, with fresh episodes following on Tuesdays.

What Is The Plot of The 6th Season of ‘Better Call Saul’?
The show will pick up after the events of season five and will definitely disclose the fates of individuals, albeit some will be predictable given the characters’ subsequent appearances in Breaking Bad. While we don’t want to give too much away, here is AMC’s official show synopsis:
“Better Call Saul’s final season wraps up the tortuous journey and transition of Jimmy McGill, the show’s conflicted hero, into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman.
Season six follows Jimmy, Saul, and Gene as they travel from the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, as well as Jimmy’s complicated relationship with Kim, who is dealing with her own existential crisis.
Meanwhile, Mike, Gus, Nacho, and Lalo are engaged in a deadly game of cat and mouse.” Season six will also feature three short-form programs set in the Better Call Saul universe, including the animated comedy Slippin’ Jimmy, Cooper’s Bar, and new episodes of the Emmy Award-winning Better Call Saul Employee Training Video series.
Season 6 of Better Call Saul Has How Many Episodes?

Trailer for Season 6 of Better Call Saul
On March 10, 2022, the trailer for Better Call Saul Season 6 was published, and you can see it above. The Salamanca twins, Leonel and Marco Salamanca were featured in the first teaser for Better Call Saul Season 6 on February 8, 2022. (Daniel Moncada and Luis Moncada, respectively).
When Will Call Saul Season 6 Be Available?
Better Call Saul’s major plot takes place in the mid-2000s and spans several years. Every season begins with a black-and-white flashback to a time in the future when Saul Goodman is known as Gene Takavic. Season 5 of Better Call Saul premieres in the spring of 2004 and concludes in late June.
There is a four-year gap between the timelines of this episode and Breaking Bad, as Breaking Bad premiered in the fall of 2008.
So it appears that Better Call Saul Season 6 will take place sometime between late 2004 and early 2005 and late 2008, before and after Jimmy assumes the identity of Gene Takavic and relocates to Omaha, Nebraska.
Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul follows Walter White’s lawyer Saul Goodman (as in “it’s all good, man!”). The final season sees Jimmy McGill’s gradual transformation into Saul Goodman come to a close, bringing Better Call Saul full circle with Breaking Bad.
Anyone living outside of the United States, whether in the United Kingdom, France, India, the Netherlands, or any of the other 36 nations, will be able to view episodes every week.
Better Call Saul has also been a huge hit on Netflix, with fans eagerly anticipating the series’ release on the platform.
