It’s the end of an era as the spin-off series Better Call Saul begins working on the finale episode.
On February 2 2022, the show’s co-creator, Peter Gould, sneaked a peek of the crew and cast’s on-set filming on Twitter. His post reads, “Best cast and crew in the universe!” He also attached an image of the final episode’s clipboard. The slate features Gould’s name, as he serves as the episode’s director, together with Marshall Adams as the director of photography.

At the top of the clipboard is the handle #HEREforHALYNA, a tribute to the late cinematographer Halyna Hutchins who died on-set while shooting the movie Rust in New Mexico. Better Call Saul has also been filming in New Mexico.
Also notable on the slate is EP#613 DATE: 01/30/2022, meaning that the series’ last episode is season 6 episode 13, whose filming started on Sunday, January 30 2022.
The sixth and final season of Better Call Saul includes 13 total episodes, up from the usual 10 in the previous seasons.
The end of the show marks an entire wrap up for the crime drama series universe that began with Vince Gilligan’s Award-winning Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul first made its debut in 2015, starring Breaking Bad’s iconic lawyer Saul Godman, with Bob Odenkirk perfectly bringing out the character. Because Goodman’s potential was largely unexplored in the predecessor series, the decision was made to further showcase his story in the spinoff series.
Season 6 of Better Call Saul is expected to premiere on AMC sometime this year, fingers are crossed on June or July, but we shall alert you once we hear of an official release date.
Heads up, as the ending might not be a happy one for the show’s beloved characters, as teased by Rhea Seehorn, who goes by Kim Wexler in the series. She bluntly described the final episodes as ‘devastating’, but the term is open to interpretation.
