“It’s all good, man,” Jimmy McGill says in the finale of Better Call Saul Season 4 as he goes to complete his transformation to Saul Goodman. The finale sets up what fans can expect from Season 5 of Better Call Saul now that the transformation to the Breaking Bad character is complete.
Will there be a Season 5 of Better Call Saul?
AMC renewed Better Call Saul for a fifth season before Season 4 aired. Therefore, we will likely get a Season 5 release date on schedule since the production team doesn’t have to wait for a renewal. Fans should expect Season 5 around August 2019 as the series closes in on Breaking Bad.
