Is the Breaking Bad universe coming to an end? Better Call Saul will be the final episode of the series, according to Vince Gilligan
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said in a recent interview that while he’s happy with what he’s accomplished with the BB universe, it’s time for a change.
The AMC series Breaking Bad hasn’t lagged far behind Game of Thrones in terms of the evolution of storytelling in the modern day. The program received overwhelming acclaim from both critics and viewers and is considered one of the best programs of all time. Vince Gilligan, the show’s creator, was tasked with creating a show that would not only continue the story of the previous program, but also offer something new and distinctive. Better Call Saul, introduced by Gilligan, stunned everyone with his excellent storytelling and nuanced characters. After an amazing run of six seasons, the show, which debuted in 2015, will air its series finale on Monday, August 15, 2022.
However, if you’re one of those who thinks that Gilligan would revisit the Breaking Bad universe, we’re sorry to say, that’s not the case. The Emmy-winning producer has made it absolutely clear that once Better Call Saul Season 6 airs on AMC, audiences will not see or hear anything from Breaking Bad on TV.
