Six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. We meet him when the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut. The series will track Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “criminal lawyer.”
Nearly one year to the date of its last renewal, AMC announced today that Better Call Saul will be returning for a fifth season. But unlike last year, the good news comes ahead of its current season premiere rather than following the finale.
Fans of the Breaking Bad prequel will undoubtedly be pleased with the early pickup, as it gives the show at least two more seasons - including Season 4 which premieres August 6 - to explore Jimmy McGill's full transformation into Saul Goodman. With each passing season, the worlds of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad overlap more and more, providing plenty of fan service to viewers of both shows.
Look for Season 5 of Better Call Saul in 2019.
