'Better Call Saul' Season 5 Premiere Date, Spoilers: Bob Odenkirk Teases It Will Be The 'Best Season Ever'
Netflix has remained mum about Better Call Saul Season 5, but thanks to the lead star Bob Odenkirk, little details about the show now emerged. In an interview with the 56-year-old actor, he teased the new season would blow everyone's mind as it would be different from its predecessors.
"It's the best season we've ever done, it's going to blow your mind, and I'm not kidding about either of those things," Odenkirk told Deadline. "It's f****** awesome. I can't wait for people to see it. It's just shattering in every direction, and I love it."
By the looks of it, Odenkirk tried his best not to spill anything about Better Call Saul Season 5. However, he managed to hype up the show once again in a way that it is anticipated. It may be the Breaking Bad star's job to big up the show, but given the series' premise, what he said might be true.
The show's cast and crew have wrapped up filming. Although it may take more time before the new season comes out on the small screens, there are rumors if it will be the series' final installment.
It has been almost a year since Season 4 finale revealed Jimmy McGill's (Odenkirk) transformation as the criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. As the show finally gave in to the fans' clamor to show the actor's trademark character, the series would not go on forever.
So, will Better Call Saul Season 5 end this time? In a tweet, Odenkirk shared a group selfie, featuring himself, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Giancarlo Esposito, Michael Mando, Tony Dalton, and executive producer Peter Gold. In the caption, he said it was the wrap party of the new season, and it was a blast working with the best cast, great actors, and great people.
Although it only looked like a celebratory post, Mando's caption when he shared Odenkirk's tweet seemed to mean something else. "What a ride it's been," he captioned the snap. Does it mean it will be the end of the show or his character as Nacho?
In April, Esposito revealed the show would only have six seasons. "There will be six seasons. It seems like that's the way, the comfortable way, to end this show," he told Collider at the time.
As the show is quickly approaching the Breaking Bad timeline, it may not be that far that the series will ultimately reach its end. Anyhow, the release of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie may put Better Call Saul Season 5 on a high note, although everything else remains to be seen. The new season is set to be out in 2020 on AMC.
