Better Call Saul taking elements from Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad split its last season into two parts – season “5A” and “5B”. According to series maker Vince Gilligan, the season is split to provide enough time for writers to have a pleasing ending.
However, the decision of splitting is right. It provides writers the time to bring up an iconic ending. A year gap creates a huge tension for the viewers.
Better Call Saul’s splitting of the final season could have this effect. If season 6A ends with thrill. Then, it would increase the interest in season 6B ten times.
Better Call Saul takes elements from Breaking Bad, so it’s possible that season 6 could be split in two. Splitting of season 6 into two parts would give the writers enough time to make an iconic ending.
Better Call Saul Season 6 V/S Breaking Bad Season 5
Season 6 split into two parts is more sensual than for Breaking Bad because it would reduce strain on the team caused by the Coronavirus.
Better Call Saul season 6 has three more episodes that head it towards a bigger shoot. If season 6 divides in half, it suggests that the show could stay on track with the current schedule.
And avoid any delays due to coronavirus, because they would only work on 6-7 episodes at a time. Season 6A having the first 6-7 episodes in 2021, and then season 6B airing in 2022. It would be easier for fans to wait for a little bit of time.
The Better Call Saul season 6’s writers are working on scripts during the stay-at-home order.
Some fans may be disappointed to wait an extra year for the last 6-7 episodes. If splitting of season 6 has similar results for Better Call Saul as it did for Breaking Bad season 5, then the finale for the former could be fulfilling.
