Better Call Saul Season 5 Release Date Announced
The news comes after just one month after the release of Breaking Bad’s film sequel, El Camino. AMC has finally announced the Season 5 release date of the BB spin-off show Better Call Saul.
Jimmy McGill Returns in Better Call Saul Season 5
AMC released a brief trailer with a date February 23, 2020. The US network will broadcast first two episodes of the show starring Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill and Jonathan Banks as the famous Mike from the previous show.
Usually, Netflix releases the show on its streaming platform a day later. Hence, Netflix UK should expect the show to arrive on February 24.
We will finally get to see more of Jimmy as he continues his journey to become Saul Goodman. Under this new identity, the crooked lawyer who helped [spoiler alter] Walter White escape justice “legally”. The first four seasons of the show by Vince Gilligan is already on Netflix.
Will Saul Goodman Meet Walter White?
Some fans are frustrated about waiting for Jimmy McGill to meet Walter White in Better Call Saul. Until now there are no signs of Jesse Pinkman or the man himself coming to meet the lawyer, unlike what the rumours stated. However, perhaps it is for the best that the meeting does not happen at all in the show. This is because Better Call Saul should not rely on the story line mixing up with Breaking Bad in order to keep it afloat. Still, we cannot fully rule out the possibility of a short cameo happening anytime soon. Can we expect this from Season 5 now that its release date is announced?
However, Billboard reported once reported that the show creator Vince Gilligan may bring on Bryan Cranston in the show at some point. This happened when Gilligan, Cranston, and Paul got together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Breaking Bad. He explained that it isn’t confirmed or anything but “we would be sorely remiss if these characters didn’t appear in the show before it ended.”
