S’all good man! Already rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul is ready to come full circle. Currently streaming on AMC and AMC+, the series concludes the complicated journey and transformation of its compromised hero, Jimmy McGill, into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. From the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, season six tracks Jimmy, Saul and Gene as well as Jimmy’s complex relationship with Kim, who is in the midst of her own existential crisis. Meanwhile, Mike, Gus, Nacho and Lalo are locked into a game of cat and mouse with mortal stakes.

We were thrilled to welcome back co-creator, showrunner and executive producer, Peter Gould for a mid-season conversation and Q&A as he offered insights into the most recent episodes.

Recorded on May 17, 2022.

Peter Gould

Co-Creator/Showrunner/Executive Producer, Better Call Saul

Peter Gould was a writer for the Emmy® Award–winning series Breaking Bad for all five seasons of the show’s run, serving as executive story editor, producer, supervising producer, and co-executive producer. Peter made his television directorial debut in season four and wrote and directed the penultimate episode of the series. He won two Emmys for his work on the show.

In season two of Breaking Bad, Peter wrote the episode that introduced criminal lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk). When the series concluded, Peter and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan decided they weren’t finished with the shady attorney; together they created the spin-off prequel — Better Call Saul. The first five seasons of the show received numerous awards and the sixth and final season has already been lauded by Salon critic Melanie McFarland as “still the most extraordinary, riveting drama on TV.” According to Hugo Rifkind of The Times of London: “The vital fact about Better Call Saul is that it is simply as good as telly gets.”
