Better Call Saul season 6 trailer teases the full evolution of Saul Goodman

Expect the unexpected

Matt Leone has written about games for three decades, focusing on behind-the-scenes coverage of the industry, including books on Final Fantasy 7 and Street Fighter 2.

It’s been almost two years since the season 5 finale, but Better Call Saul is returning soon for its sixth and final season. To revive excitement, AMC released the season’s first full-length trailer Thursday.

The series has been patiently tracking Jimmy McGill’s evolution from an eager young lawyer into a full-on con man. The trailer shows McGill embracing his Saul Goodman persona with a confidence not seen in previous seasons — and falling into plenty of chaos along the way. With this being the show’s final season, the timeline is getting closer and closer to many of the key events of Breaking Bad, so it seems like a safe bet we’ll see plenty of connections between the two.

Though the two might not connect in the most obvious ways. As the trailer ends, Mike Ehrmantraut says, “Whatever happens next, it’s not gonna go down the way you think it is.”

The final season of Better Call Saul premieres on April 18, with seven episodes planned before a break; the last six episodes will begin airing July 11.
