Subscribe To Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk Doesn't Think The Show Should Last Longer Than Breaking Bad Updates
Bob Odenkirk plays Jimmy McGill on Better Call Saul, but the Season 4 finale primed him to fully become the Saul Goodman we know and shake our heads at but still love in Breaking Bad.
Breaking Bad ran for five seasons from 2008 to 2013. The fifth season was split into two parts, though, so it was essentially six seasons. Season 1 had seven episodes, Seasons 2-4 had 13 episodes, and Season 5 had 16 episodes split into two batches of eight. The total episode count? 62.
Better Call Saul's first four seasons all had 10 episodes. Season 5, coming in 2020, is expected to continue the 10-episode count. If the show goes for one more season, that would put the episode count at 60.
That sounds about right to Bob Odenkirk, who had this to say when Gold Derby asked how long he sees Better Call Saul lasting:
So he's hoping for no more than six seasons with 10 episodes each?
Bob Odenkirk said he thinks Jimmy has fully become Saul by the end of Better Call Saul Season 4, although he said he's not sure show creators Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan would say the same:
Saul is now here. We just have to wait a while to see him, Kim, Gus, Mike, Nacho, new villain Lalo, and the rest of the gang when Better Call Saul Season 5 arrives on AMC in 2020.
