Better Call Saul Season 6 Release Date for Netflix Reportedly Revealed

According to reports, the release date for season 6 of Better Call Saul on Netflix has been revealed and it is expected to be soon. The last episodes of the Breaking Bad spinoff were broadcasted in August and surprised audiences with unexpected storylines, receiving high praise from viewers and critics alike. The show has consistently been recognized as one of the best of 2022, leading to increased demands for it to be acknowledged at the Emmy Awards. Despite receiving numerous nominations and widespread acclaim, the series has yet to win an award at the ceremony.

For those who are interested in re-watching the sixth season of Better Call Saul or those who haven’t seen it yet, an upcoming opportunity is on the horizon. What’s On Netflix reports that starting from April 18, subscribers in the U.S. and Canada will be able to stream the season on Netflix, which is less than a year since its initial release on AMC in July 2022.

The Breaking Bad universe’s popularity was boosted by Netflix

The popularity of Breaking Bad surged as viewers binge-watched the show on Netflix, contributing to what is now called the “Netflix effect.” This phenomenon refers to how widely-available streaming services boost the ratings of shows, regardless of their level of popularity beforehand. Beyond viewership, Netflix’s availability also played a critical role in keeping the show from being canceled, according to the show’s creator, Vince Gilligan. At the 2013 Emmy Awards, following the show’s conclusion, Gilligan expressed gratitude to Netflix and acknowledged that the streaming platform’s popularity had helped to keep the series on the air.

Netflix furthered the narrative of Breaking Bad with the release of a follow-up film that centers on the character of Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul. This film, titled El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, ties up some loose ends left by the original series and premiered in October 2019. In the first week after its release, Netflix reported that over 25 million households had viewed the movie. El Camino also received critical acclaim, with reviewers lauding it as Aaron Paul’s best acting work to date.

Although Better Call Saul’s sixth season delivers a conclusive ending for some essential characters, the nature of the Breaking Bad universe often allows for the possibility of additional storylines, should the cast and creatives choose to pursue them. While any future prequels or sequels are not expected to surface in the immediate future, the long-term streaming success of the spinoff could impact whether or not new projects are announced further down the line.
