Gould and Gilligan talked in regards to the next period in addition to end of Jimmy/Saul’s trip. This involves something that Better Call Saul will have that Breaking Bad never did. Better Call Saul returns February 23 on AMC.

“Thank God for AMC and Sony, they’ve picked us up for season 6,” Gould said. “Of course, we’re talking about Season 5 right now, but I can tell you that we’ve been picked up for season 6, and season 6 will be our final season.  Absolutely.  We are going to end this, knocking on wood, with 63 episodes. That’s exactly what we wanted and that’s what we hoped for in our wildest dreams.”

‘Breaking Bad’ never really had an event 63 or a season 6

Better Call Saul is going to finish with yet another event than Breaking Bad. Breaking Bad also wrapped up 62 attacks in five periods.

“Yeah, we’re gonna top you,” Gould said. “It just seems like the right number of episodes.”

To reach 63, there may be 13 attacks when you look at the last period of Better Call Saul.

“I wish I could say there was some scientific formula to it,” Gould stated. “A lot of it is just gut where you say, ‘Yeah, I think ten’s too few, fourteen’s too many. Thirteen seems right. I think the answer is that I’m slower. Peter by himself is slower than Peter and Vince together. So I think that’s part of it.”

They still don’t understand how ‘Better Call Saul’ finishes

Since Better Call Saul is a prequel to Breaking Bad, you’d believe the designers of both programs would discover how they link-up. The end of Better Call Saul is nonetheless available to options.

“It’s difficult to explore the finish because we now haven’t even started our writer’s area for the past period. During the breaking of Season 5, i do believe the fog began to carry a bit. The headlights began to achieve that much more in the future.  We began to see where we believe it ends up, and I also need certainly to state nothing from it is exactly what I would personally’ve anticipated whenever we began.  So, I’ll leave it at that, and perhaps with any chance, God ready, we’ll be straight back right here to speak about Season 6.  We can explore the termination of it.  But the termination of it, i do believe, if this period is finished, we believe you’ll have an improved knowledge of sort of where this will be all going.

‘Better Call Saul’ could overlap the start of ‘Breaking Bad’

The end of Better Call Saul is not always the start of Breaking Bad. It could carry on to the very early periods for the initial show, but program Saul Goodman’s point of view. Or it may leap past Breaking Bad in the Gene storyline.

“All of those possibilities are not necessarily mutually exclusive,” Gilligan said. “So, maybe a little bit of everything, maybe.”

Gilligan continues to be unfortunate to see Better Call Saul end.

“I wish for more still because now that I’m not in the trenches with you every day,” Gilligan stated. “I’m like, oh man, I want this thing to go on forever.”
