After a long wait of two years, Breaking Bad fans have now got a glimpse of the sixth and final season of AMC’s Better Call Saul, with an intense trailer that ties up the strings between Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould’s incredible TV shows:
Set to Andy Williams’ 1962 hit Days of Wine and Roses, the trailer shows Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim (Rhea Seehorn) driven to the very edge of their individual existential crises, surrounded by the burgeoning threat of new Mexico’s drug empires. In response, we see Jimmy finally plunge confidently into his con-man Saul Goodman persona, even buying his iconic white Cadillac that features in Breaking Bad.
Ominous and foreboding, the season also brings together the two unlinked plot threads of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad. While we do know that certain characters such as Mike (Jonathan Banks) make it into the latter series, we certainly know that none of them do so unscathed.
As for characters that don’t make an appearance, Kim, Nacho (Michael Mando), and Lalo (Tony Dalton), the stakes are higher than ever before. With 5 incredible seasons of the show behind them, fans took to Twitter en masse, sharing their support and hyping up one of the most highly-anticipated TV seasons of all time, while hoping that the showrunners spare their favorite characters:
Even Patrick Fabian, who plays fan-favorite Howard Hamlin in the show, made a tongue-in-cheek joke at the new promo poster:
Better Call Saul begins streaming on AMC/AMC+, on April 18th.
