The Breaking Bad Prequel is all set to return with a new season after keeping us waiting for almost two years.
So the expectations for this season have risen to the sky and what we want to see is another blockbuster, keeping in mind the previous seasons and the image of The Breaking Bad, which surely in itself is an investment when it comes to TV Shows.
So, here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season.
Better Call Saul Season 5: Release Date
After a long wait, season five of Better Call Saul is arriving in 2023 with the same grandeur.
In an interview with the Vulture, Sarah Barnett, the AMC’s President of Entertainment Networks broke the news to us.
She said while revealing the new, “We said on our most recent earnings call that the series would come back for season five next year.”
She added, “It’s driven by talent needs, which we would not override if it would result in a worse show.”
Better Call Saul’s co-creator Peter Gould while taking about the season said, “The show is finite and, for better or for worse, we’re telling a story with a beginning and a middle and an end, and it feels like we’re closer to the end than to the beginning.”
“I don’t know how many more seasons we’ve got for sure and some of that is a question of how much more story there is to tell and some of it is hopefully enough people watch to continue having it as a going concern.”
The fifth season of the AMC television series Better Call Saul is scheduled to premiere on February 23, 2023, in the United States.

Better Call Saul Season 5: Plot and what to expect?
Better Call Saul lead Bob Odenkirk has been chatting to Gold Derby about where season 4 left Jimmy, and how close he is at this point to becoming Saul:
“I think he’s there. I’m not sure that Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan feel this way, but I do. I feel that in his heart and his mind he’s there. He’s Saul. He just needs to get the office and come up with the idea that, ‘Who will be beneficiary of these particular skills? Who would value them the most?’ I don’t think it’s a long journey to drug dealers and scumbags are gonna appreciate how fast and loose I play with the truth. They’re gonna marvel at it and appreciate it and not in any way have any issue with being a con job lawyer. Whereas, a law firm or, let’s say a banker, a banking firm, or some respectable member of society, they would be less apt to want that kind of lawyer representing them ‘cause they have a certain status in the social scene that they wanna maintain.”
Odenkirk also told a few things when asked about the upcoming season. He pointed out that there might be a sixth season in the franchise.
“I’d like to find out what happens to Gene, the character he is after Better Call Saul, after Breaking Bad, but I feel like the way these guys tell a story, I feel like [there are] maybe two seasons [more to come]. Maybe. I also like when the story speeds up. I respect how good they are at picking things apart and slowing them down but I like when things go a little faster, so for me, I feel like two seasons would be the outside of it.”
