Note: this article contains spoilers from the season 4 finale of Better Call Saul.
Better Call Saul took a massive leap forward in Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman in last night’s (October 8) season 4 finale.
At the end of the episode, Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) reveals that he intends to get his legal licence back under his alter ego’s name, conning the appeals board in the process and even lying to Kim (Rhea Seehorn).
With a fifth season on the horizon, co-creator Peter Gould has now revealed that the end point for the show has been considered – if not entirely finalised.
“The show is finite and, for better or for worse, we’re telling a story with a beginning and a middle and an end, and it really feels like we’re closer to the end than to the beginning,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.
“I don’t know how many more seasons we’ve got for sure and obviously some of that is a question of how much more story there is to tell and some of it is hopefully enough people watch to continue having it as a going concern.
“We’re relying very much on the fans to keep us on and we’ll have to see. Before season five is over, I think we’ll have a very clear idea of how much further we’ve got to go.”
Asked if conversations had taken place, Gould admitted: “I’ll be honest with you, there’s been a little bit of conversation, and I don’t want to be coy about it, because AMC and Sony have been incredibly supportive.
“What they’ve really said is that they want us to take the lead and figure out how many more episodes there are. So that’s something we’re working on!”
Better Call Saul airs on AMC in the US and Netflix in the UK.
