Better Call Saul fans look destined to wait until 2022 to finally watch the final season of the highly-acclaimed Breaking Bad prequel.
According to AMC Networks chief Josh Sapan, the company has some “shifting around due to COVID-related production delays for our shows,” according to The Wrap. Sapan continued: “We have a fuller slate of The Walking Dead universe shows than we’ve had in some time, with The Walking Dead back and Fear The Walking Dead back at full strength, and then the second season of World Beyond.
“It does look likely, at this point, that Better Call Saul will move into the first quarter of 2022. That’s the way we’re seeing it right now. And other shows, we’re on a production timing schedule. We’ll have a clearer view, I think, next quarter.”
Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk recently picked up his fourth Golden Globe nomination for his performance as bent lawyer Saul Goodman and claimed that fans were in store for “fireworks” in the show’s “supremely intense” final season.
“The nomination is a reminder that there’s other people out there in the world, that we’re part of a community,” he told Deadline following his nomination. “Our show is a bit of a slow burn over the past few years, and [creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould] build up. There’s certainly exciting moments throughout, but towards the end, it gets super supremely intense,” Odenkirk added.
