The critically acclaimed Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul has confirmed that a fan favorite from the original series will be returning for the final season of the show.
Season five of Better Call Saul is due to premiere next month and a sixth season has been confirmed for 2021. This will be the final season of the show and will likely bring fans right up to the Breaking Bad timeline.
AMC has also revealed that a well-loved character from Breaking Bad will be returning for season six. The character is none other than Dean Norris’ Hank Schrader, aka Walter White’s DEA agent brother-in-law.
“From day one of Better Call Saul, my dream was to tell the complete story of our complicated and compromised hero Jimmy McGill, now AMC and Sony are making that dream come true,” showrunner Peter Gould said of the upcoming seasons.
“We couldn’t be more grateful to the fans and critics who are making this journey possible. Next month, we start work on the sixth and final season – we’re going to do our damnedest to stick the landing.”
Better Call Saul season 5 will air weekly on AMC starting from February 23rd.
