AMC’s “Better Call Saul” has been renewed for a sixth and final season of thirteen episodes at AMC.
The final season will go into production later this year and air in 2021, that number brings the show’s total to 63 episodes – one more than its progenitor “Breaking Bad”.
Showrunner Peter Gould and co-creator Vince Gilligan announced the news at the show’s Television Critics’ Association winter press tour panel and arrives just over a month before the fifth season kicks off February 23rd.
AMC is also developing a number of potential ideas to serve as the basis for a third season of its historical horror anthology drama series “The Terror”. The network has been pitched concepts by production company Scott Free and is talking about which could make it for a third run.
The first season was based on the Dan Simmons novel about the doomed Franklin expedition to find the Northwest Passage in the 1840s. The second involves a malevolent force within a WW2 Japanese internment camp. Both were handled by different creatives and the same would apply for the third season.
