Better Call Saul's final season to be split into two parts
Its first half will premiere in the first few months of 2022.
The sixth season of Better Call Saul will be split into two parts, says star Rhea Seehorn.
The actress, who plays the titular lawyer’s (Bob Odekirk) colleague and later wife Kim Wexler, confirmed the news in a recent interview with Variety.
This last outing will consist of 13 hour-long episodes but it’s not yet clear how many will make up each separate installment.
Seehorn didn’t give anything away regarding the plot of this final season but did describe it as “insane” saying that “it’s going to blow people’s minds. I can’t wait for it to come out.”
Jonathan Banks, Giancarlo Esposito, Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando will all reprise their roles. Co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould will return as joint showrunners.
Filming on Better Call Saul’s sixth season began this March but was forced to pause in July when Odenkirk suffered a heart attack.
He returned to set in early September with the filming of scenes featuring other characters continuing whilst he recovered.
The first half of Better Call Saul’s sixth season will premiere in the first quarter of 2022.
If you need a quick refresh before then, the first five seasons of Better Call Saul are available to stream on Netflix.
