“Better Call Saul” Enters Its Final Season
ICM Partners is eager to share news on our client Vince Gilligan, best known as the creator, head writer, executive producer, and director of AMC’s Breaking Bad and its spin-off Better Call Saul. After five seasons of remarkable television, Better Call Saul premiered its sixth and last season on April 18 — but have no fear, Vince is determined to go out on a high note. Since day one, the adored series has stood on its own. While knowing about Breaking Bad enhances the prequel in a sense, it is in no way a requirement for enjoyment; the show has earned its praise and merit without leaning on what came before.
Fans can expect the vibrant style of showing instead of telling that the hit series marvelously excels at, with a few surprises thrown in. Since its inception, the question of whether Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul would appear alongside star Bob Odenkirk in the “Saul”-verse has been looming over the creator’s head. In an interview with Variety, the genius behind Better Call Saul admits that if there was ever a time for the stars of Breaking Bad to make their entrance, it would be now.
“It would be a damn shame if the show ended without [Cranston and Paul] appearing, would it not?” said Vince with a smirk. He later added, “You heard it here first.”
After five seasons of anticipation and teases, the long-awaited return of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman has been confirmed, but rest assured, their return won’t be the season’s biggest surprise. Tune in to the end of Saul’s story — before he began representing Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal.
