Better Call Saul season five has now finished airing on AMC and for more regions, the entirety of the fifth series is now on Netflix. Here’s when Netflix in the US will be getting it, and a few clues as to what’s next for Saul Goodman.
It’s been a great few years to be a Breaking Bad fan, with Better Call Saul telling us the origin story of the wise-talking Saul Goodman. In addition, late last year we received El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie that concludes Jessie Pinkman’s story.
Season five of Better Call Saul premiered on AMC on February 23rd, 2020 and once again consists of 10 episodes.
The 10 episodes will conclude on April 20th, 2020. Although it’s not officially the final season of the show, season five will now hit the same number of seasons as its mothership series Breaking Bad did.
We know there’s still one more series due for release. Better Call Saul season six was announced to release at some point in 2021, we’ll touch on this more in a second.
Let’s now take a look at when season 5 will be on Netflix.
When will Better Call Saul season five be on Netflix in the US and Canada?
Those in Canada, the United States, South Africa, and Spain will have the longest to wait for Better Call Saul season five.
Season four only recently dropped on Netflix and serves to help promote the new season on its US network. With season six confirmed, season five won’t be on Netflix until a few weeks before the new season airs. However, with filming likely delayed, we’re not entirely sure when that will be.
If we only have to wait for a year until season six of Better Call Saul, we can expect season five to be on Netflix US in early 2021. That may, however, be optimistic. For the moment, we can only definitively say it’ll be at some point in 2021.
