Prior to last season’s Better Call Saul, AMC renewed the show for another season. With its yearly release, fans assumed the new season would drop sometime later this year. Unfortunately, the hit show won’t make its return until sometime in 2020.

Better Call 2020

In an interview with Vulture, AMC President of Entertainment Networks Sarah Barnett discussed the network’s growing programming. When talking about Better Call Saul‘s delay, it came down to potential scheduling conflicts. “It’s driven by talent needs, which we would not override if it would result in a worse show,” she told Vulture. Several stars are busy working on projects right now. Jonathan Banks is getting ready to film The Damaged while Giancarlo Esposito is finishing up on Coda.

The Perfect Ending

Following season four, fans want to see the continuous mayhem surrounding James Morgan McGill. When it comes to its inevitable ending, co-creator Peter Gould wants it to conclude on a high note. “My dream would be that this is somewhere in the same universe of satisfaction as Breaking Bad was. I was so proud to be part of the way we ended Breaking Bad, and that was actually one of the fears of doing this show — that we would tarnish that. Having said that, I think we are closer to the end than to the beginning,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

Accolades At Every Turn

Season four of the series brought steady ratings and praise to the network. Earlier this year, the show began earning accolades for the ten-episode season. Bob Odenkirk earned Best Actor nominations at the Satellite Awards and Screen Actors Guild Awards. At the Writers Guild of America Awards, the show was nominated for Writers Guild of America Awards.

With the Emmy Awards this fall, AMC is hoping the series can grab some major nominations. Better Call Saul is available for streaming on Netflix right now.
