Better Call Saul Season 5: Netflix release date, cast and latest updates on the new season

Better Call Saul Season 5

On-demand, Better Call  Saul’s Season 5 has already been broadcast on AMC, with Season 6 set to premiere sometime this year. Some of you may already have seen Season 5, however, in the United States, the series’ Netflix release is inextricably linked to the release of Season 6.

As of now, Netflix has decided to air Season 5 only after Season 6 premieres on AMC.

Better Call Saul Season 5 debuted on AMC on February 23, 2020, and had a 10-episode run. On April 20, 2020, the fifth season was wrapped up with a sort of cliffhanger for the audience.

Better Call Saul Season 6 will be available soon on the audience demand. Although it was confirmed sometime back, it was subjected to lengthy delays (the longest in the show’s history).

Season 6 will be the final season of the programme, with 13 episodes concluding Jimmy McGill’s complete shift to Saul Goodman.

Let’s see when Season 5 will be available on Netflix.

When will Netflix release Season 5 of Saul’s Best on Demand in the US and Canada?

The longest wait times for Season 5 are in Canada, the United States, South Africa, and Spain.

Because the programme premieres in the United States, it will take some time for the licence to become accessible on Netflix in these countries, and they will not receive the same weekly treatment as the rest of the world.

Season 4 was released on Netflix on February 9, 2020, only weeks before Season 5 was set to premiere. The third season, on the other hand, was uploaded on Netflix in March 2018, far ahead of the August premiere date.

In previous years, new seasons have usually been uploaded right before the following season begins, and considering the vast gap between seasons 5 and 6, we can almost certainly expect a long wait for Netflix.

After substantial delays due to COVID-19 and Bob Odenkirk’s medical concerns in the late summer of 2021, a sixth season is still planned for 2022.

Better Call Saul Season 5 isn’t on the schedule for February 2022, thus we won’t be seeing S6 in March.
