The Breaking Bad spinoff’s final installment was one of the many major TV productions that was affected by the ongoing pandemic in 2020. Because of this, Sony Pictures Television had no choice but to rescheduled its production start to March 10, 2021. During filming, Odenkirk also suffered a heart attack on set which led him to take a break for over a month.

Better Call Saul stars stars Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Tony Dalton as Lalo, Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, Michael Mando as Nacho Vargo and Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring.

“The final season concludes the complicated journey and transformation of its compromised hero, Jimmy McGill, into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman,” reads the synopsis. “From the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, season six tracks Jimmy, Saul and Gene as well as Jimmy’s complex relationship with Kim, who is in the midst of her own existential crisis. Meanwhile, Mike, Gus, Nacho and Lalo are locked into a game of cat and mouse with mortal stakes.”
