It’s been revealed that the final season of Better Call Saul will start shooting later this year – March to be exact, which is good news. This news comes to us via Deadline.
While walking his dog yesterday morning, star Bob Odenkirk learned of is Golden Globe 2021 nomination, for his portrayal of the titular character Saul Goodman. Having played the character since 2009 originally on the hugely successful Breaking Bad series, followed by the subsequent spin-off Better Call Saul, this will be his 4th time nominated at the Globes.
Along with 5 Emmy nominations for the character as an ‘Outstanding Lead Actor’ he’s achieved huge success within the role itself. He recently spoke with Deadline and announced it will begin filming in March this year, and he was greatly looking forward to not “living in a pandemic world” with the character.
“I can’t wait for the fireworks really” he continued, and as the sixth and final season brings the series full circle to the beginning of Breaking Bad we can expect some fireworks. We first meet Saul Goodman in the second season of Breaking Bad. Over the following seasons, he becomes a legal accomplice to Bryan Cranston’s Walter White character.
Better Call Saul’s last season will start shooting this March
His character returns in Better Call Saul, and you can catch the first 5 seasons on Netflix right now. Here we see ‘Jimmy McGill’ and following his journey before he became Saul Goodman and a host of familiar characters appear along the way, from Mike, Hyell, the Salamancas.
The series also picked up 5 Writers Guild Award nominations for 2021 this morning, including Best Drama Series, Episodic Drama (For episodes JMM and Bad Choice Road). With so much to fit in the final season, along with so many unanswered questions and theories, series creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould certainly have a lot of expectations.
But rest assured judging by how widely critically and fan received both shows have been since their inception we won’t have anything to worry about. Are you excited for Better Call Saul’s finale? Let us know in the comments below!
