Breaking Bad’s popular spin-off series is returning with a fifth season. ‘Better Call Saul Season 5’ will soon premiere on AMC. The critically acclaimed show debuted back in 2015. Since then, the show manages to awe its viewers with fascinating plot twists and amazing actors.
Fans find the whole good-lawyer turns into bad-lawyer story extremely captivating. Brilliant actor Bob Odenkirk amazingly blends into both Jimmy and Saul’s characters. Born as Jimmy McGill, Bob’s character transforms into the ill-witted attorney Saul Goodman.
Saul does everything that will make him the opposite of his last name. After a chilling Season 4, he totally overcomes Jimmy and the season finale brings us the death of the latter. The new season will bring us several exciting plot twists. But firstly, is ‘Better Call Saul Season 5’ the end of our favorite show?
Better Call Saul Season 5: The End
Unfortunately, according to some recent statements by the showrunners, Better Call Saul may end with its fifth season. Co-creator Peter Gould expresses that the spin-off series was expected to have as many episodes as Breaking Bad. And the show is close to reaching the target number of episodes. Hence, the end of AMC’s masterpiece is near.
Also, since the show is a prequel of Breaking Bad, it will end once it matches the timeline of the latter. After the fourth season, both the timelines are close to having a collision. Thus, there are chances that the fifth season will be the series finale of the show.
Better Call Saul Season 5: Jimmy And Kim
Kim (Rhea Seehorn) may soon drift away from Jimmy. The main reason behind the same can be the fact that he is not Jimmy anymore. As he transitions into Saul, the relationship between him and Kim becomes risky. Fans are unsure if the couple will break-up by the fifth season.
Saul is a kind of person that can easily abandon his mates for his work. Fans somehow know that the criminal lawyer will never turn back to his original self. Hence, we can expect him to be as evil as we can never imagine. Thus, the next season may bring complications in Jimmy and Kim’s relationship.
